Abcam is committed to meeting high standards of ethical manufacturing and has decided to discontinue this product by June 2019 as it has been generated by the ascites method. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We would recommend antibody ab133567 as a replacement.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab683 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||1/1000. PubMed: 21103378|
|IHC-P||1/400. For paraffin embedded sections, Carnoy's fixative may give better results than formalin.|
ab683 at 1/400 staining rabbit oesophagus tissue sections by IHC-Fr. The tissue sections were paraformaldehyde fixed and blocked with serum prior to incubation with the antibody for 1 hour. An Alexa Fluor® 594 conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG1 was used as the secondary.
ab683 staining smooth muscle Myosin heavy chain 11 in rat cells from cells from mesenteric artery by ICC/IF. Cells were PFA fixed and permeabilized in 0.3% Triton X-100 prior to blocking in 2% serum for 30 minutes at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/300 and incubated with the sample for 14 hours at 4°C. Alexa Fluor® 488 chicken polyclonal to mouse Ig, diluted 1/400, was used as the secondary. Nuclei stained with Hoechst 33342.
ab683 staining smooth muscle Myosin heavy chain 11 in human cerebral artery tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - Formalin/PFA-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.3% Triton-X and blocked with 5% serum for 1 hour at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in sodium citrate. Samples were incubated with the primary antibody (1/500) for 16 hours at 4°C. A biotin-conjugated rabbit anti-mouse IgG polyclonal (1/300) was used as the secondary antibody.
ab683 staining smooth muscle Myosin heavy chain in human freshly isolated arterial myocyte by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.3% Triton X-100 and blocked with 2% BSA for 30 minutes at 20°C. Samples were incubated with the primary antibody (1/300 in PBS) for 14 hours at 4°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated chicken anti-mouse IgG polyclonal (1/400) was used as the secondary antibody.
