    trans-Retinoic acid images

    • ab19857 staining Oct4 in F9 cells treated with trans-retinoic acid (ab120728), by ICC/IF. Decrease of Oct4 expression correlates with increased concentration of trans-retinoic acid, as described in literature.
      The cells were incubated at 37°C for 2 days in media containing different concentrations of ab120728 (trans-retinoic acid) in DMSO, fixed with 4% formaldehyde for 10 minutes at room temperature 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 ab19857 (1 µg/ml) was performed overnight at 4°C in PBS containing 1% BSA and 0.1% tween. A DyLight 488 anti-rabbit polyclonal antibody (ab96899) at 1/250 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI and are shown in blue.
