    Highly pure (>98%) recombinant hPDGF-BB (human Platelet Derived Growth Factor)



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab9704 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 at an assay dependent concentration. To detect hPDGF-BB by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for recombinant hPDGF-BB is 1.5 - 3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration. To detect hPDGF-BB by direct ELISA (using 100µl/well antibody solution) a concentration of at least 0.5µg/ml of this antibody is required. This antigen affinity purified antibody, in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents, allows the detection of 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant hPDGF-BB.
Neutralising Use at an assay dependent concentration. To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of hPDGF-BB (2.5 ng/ml), a concentration of 0.03 - 0.04 µg/ml of this antibody is required.
Sandwich ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration. To be used with ab84265 as detection antibody and ab9706 as protein standard.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.

  • ab9704 staining PDGF BB in normal human skin tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue underwent proteinase K mediated antigen retrieval. The primary antibody was used at 1 ug/ml and incubated with sample at 4°C overnight. A HRP-labeled polymer detection system was used with a non-alcohol soluble AEC chromogen.

Customer reviews and Q&As

The lab let me know that this antibody (ab84265, detection antibody) can be used with ab9704 as capture antibody and ab9706 as protein standard.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.
Earlier we discussed the specificity of ab9704 for detecting PDGF BB as well as the expected expression of PDGF BB across cell lines and tissues.
According to the human protein atlas, PDGF B (alternative name for...
