Highly pure (>98%) recombinant hTRAIL (human TNF-Related Apoptosis Inducing Ligand)
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab9959 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ELISA||Use at an assay dependent concentration. To detect hTRAIL by direct ELISA (using 100µl/well antibody solution) a concentration of at least 0.5µg/ml of this antibody is required. This antigen affinity purified antibody, in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents, allows the detection of 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant hTRAIL.|
|Neutralising||Use at an assay dependent concentration. To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of hTRAIL (30 ng/ml), a concentration of 0.5 - 0.8 mg/ml of this antibody is required.|
|WB||Use at an assay dependent concentration. To detect hTRAIL by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for recombinant hTRAIL is 1.5 - 3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.|
|IHC-P||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|ICC/IF||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.|
|Sandwich ELISA||Use a concentration of 0.1 µg/ml. For sandwich ELISA, use this antibody as Detection at 0.1µg/ml with ab12124 as Capture.|
ICC/IF image of ab9959 stained MDA-MB-231 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 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 ab9959 at 1µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) 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.

Tissue underwent heat mediated antigen retrieval in sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0). The primary antibody was used at 0.25 ug/ml and incubated with sample at 4°C overnight. A HRP-labeled polymer detection system was used with a DAB chromogen.
