Full length protein corresponding to Mouse MMP9.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab38898 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|IHC-P||1/100 - 1/1000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
|IHC-Fr||1/1000. (see Abreview submitted by Greg Gibson)|
|WB||1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 92 kDa. When using colorimetric substrates such as BCIP/NBT use at a 1/5000 dilution (for chemiluminescent substrates). Detects a band of approximately 92-95 kDa (pro-form) and 82kDa (active form) (Human samples). Mouse MMP9 is larger, and on SDS PAGE gels runs about 102-105 kDa. Dilution optimised using Chromogenic detection.|
|IP||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|ELISA||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|ICC||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|IHC-FoFr||Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 19295156|

ab38898 at a 1/1000 dilution staining mouse heart tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections). The tissue was removed from a mouse, rinsed in PBS and slowly frozen in supercooled isopentane. 14um sections were made using a cryostat. The sections were acetone fixed and blocked in 2% BSA prior to incubation with the MMP9 antibody. A Cy3 conjugated goat anti-rabbit antibody (ab6939) was used as the secondary antibody. In the image: red staining = MMP9, blue staining = nuclei, green = gelatinase activity.
