Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab89220 in the following tested applications.

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

Application Abreviews Notes
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 - 5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 79 kDa.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 23082988

  • Anti-Tbx3 antibody (ab89220) at 5 µg/ml + immunogen (100aa protein fragment with a proprietary tag of 26kDa) at 0.2 µg

    Predicted band size : 79 kDa
    Observed band size : 37 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
  • Anti-Tbx3 antibody (ab89220) at 5 µg/ml + HepG2 cell lysate at 50 µg

    Predicted band size : 79 kDa
  • ab89220 at 10 µg/ml staining Tbx3 in paraformaldehyde fixed, permeabilized HepG2 cells by immunofluorescence.
  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab89220 (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 / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab89220, 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 result in HeLa cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min)/permeabilized in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.
