    Anti-Tartrate Resistant Acid Phosphatase antibody [26E5] images

    • ab49507 staining Tartate Resistance Acid Phosphatase in Human osteoclast cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 and blocked with 3% BSA for 2 hours at 4°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100 in 0.1% Triton + 3% BSA) for 12 hours at 4°C. An undiluted Alexa Fluor® 555-conjugated Donkey anti-mouse IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.

    • Immunohistochemical staining (Paraffin section) for Tartrate Resistant Acid Phosphatase using ab49507 with Human osteoclastoma as positive control. Note intense cytoplasmic staining of osteoclasts.
    • ICC/IF image of ab49507 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab49507, 1/1000 dilution) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
