Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab50339 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
WB Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 42 kDa. Additional weak bands may be detected when immunoblotting various extract preparations. Detection of podocin (doublet) by immunoblotting is specifically inhibited with the immunizing peptide. The upper band may represent a post-translational modified variant.
IHC-Fr Use a concentration of 10 - 20 µg/ml.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 0.2 µg/ml.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.


  • FunctionPlays a role in the regulation of glomerular permeability, acting probably as a linker between the plasma membrane and the cytoskeleton.
  • Tissue specificityAlmost exclusively expressed in the podocytes of fetal and mature kidney glomeruli.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in NPHS2 are the cause of nephrotic syndrome type 2 (NPHS2) [MIM:600995]. It is a renal disorder characterized clinically by childhood onset of proteinuria, hypoalbuminemia, hyperlipidemia, and edema. Kidney biopsies show non-specific histologic changes such as focal segmental glomerulosclerosis and diffuse mesangial proliferation. The disorder is resistant to steroid treatment and progresses to end-stage renal failure in the first or second decades. Some patients show later onset of the disorder.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the band 7/mec-2 family.
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane.

Anti-NPHS2 antibody images

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded mouse kidney tissue labeling NPHS2 with ab50339 at 0.2 µg/ml.  


  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded rat kidney tissue labeling NPHS2 with ab50339 at 0.2 µg/ml.  

  • ICC/IF image of ab50339 stained Hek293 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde 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 (ab50339, 1µg/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 your email.
I am sorry to hear that these antibodies are not working as expected.
As for ab58968, we had replaced this antibody free of charge with ab85379. Since ab85379 was not tested in rat, sheep, and pig tissue, I had sent ...
