    This product is a recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody.


    Produced using Abcam’s RabMAb® technology. RabMAb® technology is covered by the following U.S. Patents, No. 5,675,063 and/or 7,429,487. The major RON transcript is translated into a glycosylated single chain precursor, cleaved into a 185 kDa heterodimer (p185Ron) of 35 (alpha) and 150 kDa (beta) disulfide-linked chains, before exposure at the cell surface.

    Mouse, Rat: We have preliminary internal testing data to indicate this antibody may not react with these species. Please contact us for more information.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab52927 in the following tested applications.

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

  • Anti-RON antibody [EP1132Y] (ab52927) at 1/10000 dilution + SKBR3 cell lysate at 10 µg

    HRP-labelled goat anti-rabbit

    Predicted band size : 185 kDa
  • Immunohistochemical staining of paraffin-embedded human stomach tissue using ab52927 at a dilution of 1/100-1/250.
  • Overlay histogram showing THP1 cells stained with ab52927 (red line). The cells were fixed with methanol (5 min) and incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab52927, 1/20 dilution) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) (ab96899) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit monoclonal IgG (1µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a decreased signal in THP1 cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) used under the same conditions.

    Please note that Abcam do not have any data for use of this antibody in non-fixed cells. We welcome any customer feedback.
