Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab3612 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 at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 18384686
WB Use at an assay dependent concentration. Detects a band of approximately 22 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 24 kDa).Can be blocked with Human Rab11 peptide (ab41779). By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~22 kDa protein representing Rab 11 in CV1, PC3, and HeLa cell extract. Another less prominent, unknown band is also detected by this antibody at ~35 kDa.
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 17686995


Anti-Rab11 antibody images

  • Immunofluorescence analysis of HeLa cells, staining Rab11 (red) with ab3612.
    Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde for 10 minutes, blocked in PBS with 5% normal goat serum and permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200). An AlexaFluor®594-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody.

  • ab3612 staining HEK 293 cells by ICC/IF.  Cells were PFA fixed and permeabilized in 0.012% saponin prior to blocking in 1% BSA for 30 minutes at 37°C.  The primary antibody was diluted 1/200 and incubated with the sample for 2 hours at 37°C. A biotinylated goat anti-rabbit antibody, diluted 1/200, was used as the secondary.

    This image depicts ab3612 recognizing endogenous Rab11 (red). Rab11 was used as a recycling endosome marker.

    ab3612 used on PC3 cell extract.

  • ab3612 staining Rab11 in Canine kidney cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence.Cells were fixed in paraformaldehyde, permeabilized using 0.5% saponin, then incubated with ab3612 at a 1/200 dilution for 1.5 hours at 20°C. The secondary used was an Alexa-Fluor 568 conjugated donkey anti-rabbit polyclonal, used at a 1/350 dilution.

Thank you for contacting us.

This antibody detects both RAB11A and Rab11B.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for your reply. I would recommend keeping the blocking to one hour and incubating the primary antibody overnight at 4 degrees. I would suggest doing this at 1/300 for ab74906 and at 1/1000 for ab3612. Please let me know if this does not impro...
