    MTAP antibody (ab55517) at 1ug/lane + HeLa cell lysate at 25ug/lane.
  • ab55517 at 10 ug/ml staining MTAP in human Hella cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence.

  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab55517 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab55517, 2µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells ) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.
