  • SOX4 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Mouse Testis tissue, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to SOX4 and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).

    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, Mouse Testis tissue lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.

    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70°C; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab86809.

    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).

    Band: 52kDa; SOX4

  • IHC image of SOX4 staining in Human Hippocampus FFPE section, performed on a BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab86809, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX
  • ab86809 staining mouse teratoma sections by IHC-P. The tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and a heat mediated antigen retrival step was performed with citric acid pH 6. Blocking of the sample was done with 1% BSA for 10 minutes at 21°C, followed by staining with ab86809 at 1/400 in TBS/BSA/azide for 2h at 21°C. A biotinylated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody at 1/200 was used as the secondary antibody. Sox4 can be observed in the nucleous of a sub-population of cells.
