  • ab70475 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed for 10 minutes and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal Goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1hour at room temperature to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab70475 at 10µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was ab150117 Goat Anti-Mouse IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) preadsorbed used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1hour at room temperature. ab195889 Anti-alpha Tubulin (Alexa Fluor® 594) was used as a counterstaining (pseudo-colored red) at a 1/250 dilution for 1hour at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (pseudo-colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.

  • IHC image of MUC1 staining in human normal colon formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section*, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab70475, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.


    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

  • Ab70475 staining human normal lung. Staining is localised to the apical membrane.
    Left panel: with primary antibody at 1 ug/ml. Right panel: isotype control.
    Sections were stained using an automated system DAKO Autostainer Plus , at room temperature. Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3-in-1 antigen retrieval buffers EDTA pH 9.0 in a DAKO PT Link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 minutes. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 minutes and detected with Dako Envision Flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that for manual staining we recommend to optimize the primary antibody concentration and incubation time (overnight incubation), and amplification may be required.
  • ab70475 staining MUC1 in human breast cancer cell line T47D by Immunocytochemistry.
    Cells were fixed in methanol, blocked using 10% serum for 5 minutes at 25°C and then incubated with ab70475 at a 1/100 dilution for 1 hour at 25°C. The secondary used was an undiluted HRP conjugated goat anti-mouse polyclonal.

  • Overlay histogram showing MCF7 cells stained with ab70475 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 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 followed by the antibody (ab70475, 1µg/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. This antibody gave a positive signal in MCF7 cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

Delipidated human milk fat globule was used as the immunogen for ab70475 and unfortunately the exact epitope region for ab70475 has not been mapped.

I am sorry that I could not help further in this ma...

We do not have in-house data for this clone other than the IHC and flow cytometry data, and it does not clarify whether glycosylation is required for reactivity. The older papers listed on the datasheet describe production and characterization, in part...

As we discussed, for purified primary antibodies such as ab70475 we recommend a starting dilution of 1ug/ml for western blot. For the secondary antibody ab99632, we were able to see a band in western blot from a dilution range of 1:2,000 to 1:10,0...

We haven't tested this antibody for its cross-reactivity with MUC16. I BLASTed the MUC1 and MUC16 protein sequences, and there really isn't that much overlap. The greatest homology was around 20% and we generally...

I am sorry I could not be more helpful. Please contact us again if you have any further questions.

I am sorry it is taking so long to reply to your enquiry. I am having trouble getting a response from the supplying lab. I will forward you any information I receive as soon as possible but as of now I do not know when I will have further details.
