Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab2068 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 35 kDa.Can be blocked with Human MyD88 peptide (ab7882).

Use a modified RIPA lysis buffer: 150 mM sodium chloride, 50 mM Tris-HCl, pH 7.4, 1 mM ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid, 1 mM phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride, 1% Triton X-100, 1% sodium deoxycholic acid, 0.1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 5 µg/ml of aprotinin, 5 µg/ml of leupeptin). Remove cell debris by centrifugation. Boil the lysate for 5 min in 1 x SDS sample buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% ß-mercaptoethanol). Block the membrane with 5% non-fat dry milk in TBS overnight at 4°C or 2 hours at room temperature.

Flow Cyt Use at an assay dependent concentration.

ab171870 - Rabbit polyclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.

Target

  • FunctionAdapter protein involved in the Toll-like receptor and IL-1 receptor signaling pathway in the innate immune response. Acts via IRAK1, IRAK2, IRF7 and TRAF6, leading to NF-kappa-B activation, cytokine secretion and the inflammatory response. Increases IL-8 transcription. Involved in IL-18-mediated signaling pathway.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in MYD88 are the cause of MYD88 deficiency (MYD88D) [MIM:612260]; also known as recurrent pyogenic bacterial infections due to MYD88 deficiency. Patients suffer from autosomal recessive, life-threatening, often recurrent pyogenic bacterial infections, including invasive pneumococcal disease, and die between 1 and 11 months of age. Surviving patients are otherwise healthy, with normal resistance to other microbes, and their clinical status improved with age.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 death domain.
    Contains 1 TIR domain.
  • DomainThe intermediate domain (ID) is required for the phosphorylation and activation of IRAK.

Anti-MyD88 antibody images

  • Anti-MyD88 antibody (ab2068) at 1 µg/ml + Jurkat whole cell lysate

    Observed band size : 35 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
  • Immunohistochemical staining (paraffin embedded) of human heart tissue using anti-MyD88 at 2 µg/ml.
  • ICC/IF image of ab2068 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab2068, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

Thank you for contacting us. Wehave not yet tested this in rat tissue but the epitope matches the rat sequence 100% so it is likely to work. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

All the information that we have regarding these two antibodies is located on the online datasheets. Both have been tested for application in Western blotting and shown to cross-react with human and mouse, but I really can't say which one works "best."

Thank you very much for your enquiry. All the information that we have regarding these two antibodies is located on the online datasheets. Ab2064 corresponds to amino acids 279-296 of Human MyD88 (epitope is CTKSWFWTRLAKALSLP). Ab2068 corresponds to am...
