Full length native protein (purified) corresponding to Cow Tau (internal sequence). Purified bovine microtubule-associated proteins.
This antibody is without BSA and sodium azide.
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab80579 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|Flow Cyt||Use 1µg for 106 cells.
ab170190 - Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 79 kDa.|
|IP||Use at 2 µg/mg of lysate.|
|ICC/IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
ICC/IF image of ab80579 stained SKNSH cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum (ab7481) / 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 (ab80579, 10µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96879, DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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.
Denatured IP using Human cells: IP 2µg/mg lysate. WB at 2µg/ml.
Overlay histogram showing SH-SY5Y cells stained with ab80579 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum (ab7481) / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab80579, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in SH-SY5Y cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.
ab80579 staining tau in SKNSH cells treated with prostaglandin J2 (ab120913), by ICC/IF. Expression of tau expression is restringed to the perinuclear zone with increased concentration of prostaglandin J2, as described in literature.
The cells were incubated at 37°C for 6 hours in media containing different concentrations of ab120913 (prostaglandin J2) in DMSO, fixed with 100% methanol for 5 minutes at -20°C and blocked with PBS containing 10% goat serum, 0.3 M glycine, 1% BSA and 0.1% tween for 2h at room temperature. Staining of the treated cells with ab80579 (10 μg/ml) was performed overnight at 4°C in PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.1% tween. A DyLight® 488 anti-mouse polyclonal antibody (ab96879) at 1/250 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei (blue) were counterstained with DAPI and membrane is was stained using WGA (red).
