Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab8324 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
Sandwich ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration. Can be paired for Sandwich ELISA with Mouse monoclonal [1C1] to NSE (ab8328). For sandwich ELISA, we recommend using this antibody for capture with ab24472 as detection. Can be used as capture antibody in conjunction with ab8328 and ab24472.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration. Can be paired for ELISA with Mouse monoclonal [1C1] to NSE (ab8328).
IHC-FoFr 1/100 - 1/300.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. Recommended dilution for immunohistochemistry on formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded sections is 1:100 - 1:300. Optimal dilution must be determined by experimentation.
Flow Cyt Use 1-2µg for 106 cells. ab170192-Mouse monoclonal IgG2b, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 24125751


  • FunctionHas neurotrophic and neuroprotective properties on a broad spectrum of central nervous system (CNS) neurons. Binds, in a calcium-dependent manner, to cultured neocortical neurons and promotes cell survival.
  • Tissue specificityThe alpha/alpha homodimer is expressed in embryo and in most adult tissues. The alpha/beta heterodimer and the beta/beta homodimer are found in striated muscle, and the alpha/gamma heterodimer and the gamma/gamma homodimer in neurons.
  • PathwayCarbohydrate degradation; glycolysis; pyruvate from D-glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate: step 4/5.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the enolase family.
  • Developmental stageDuring ontogenesis, there is a transition from the alpha/alpha homodimer to the alpha/beta heterodimer in striated muscle cells, and to the alpha/gamma heterodimer in nerve cells.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cell membrane. Can translocate to the plasma membrane in either the homodimeric (alpha/alpha) or heterodimeric (alpha/gamma) form.

  • Overlay histogram showing SH-SY5Y cells stained with ab8324 (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 (ab8324, 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 IgG2b [PLPV219] (ab91366, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in SH-SY5Y cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.
