Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab95470 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
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 0.3 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 28 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 25 kDa).


  • Function
    May have a role in chronic inflammations and may stimulate production of constitutive rather than inflammatory chemokines and cytokines. Forms a receptor signaling complex with TYROBP and triggers activation of the immune responses in macrophages and dendritic cells.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed on macrophages and dendritic cells but not on granulocytes or monocytes. In the CNS strongest expression seen in the basal ganglia, corpus callosum, medulla oblongata and spinal cord.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in TREM2 are a cause of polycystic lipomembranous osteodysplasia with sclerosing leukoencephalopathy (PLOSL) [MIM:221770]; also known as presenile dementia with bone cysts or Nasu-Hakola disease (NHD). PLOSL is a recessively inherited disease characterized by a combination of psychotic symptoms rapidly progressing to presenile dementia and bone cysts restricted to wrists and ankles. PLOSL has a global distribution, although most of the patients have been diagnosed in Finland and Japan, with an estimated population prevalence of 2x10(-6) in the Finns.
  • Sequence similarities

  • ab95470 stained RAW 246.7 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed for 5 minutes at-20°C and then incubated in 1%BSA / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1hour at room temperature to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab95470 at 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (pseudo-colored green) was Donkey Anti-Goat IgG H&L (Alexa Fluor® 488) preadsorbed (ab150133) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1hour at room temperature. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (pseudo-colored red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1hour at room temperature. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (pseudo-colored blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM for 1hour at room temperature.

  • Anti-TREM2 antibody (ab95470) at 0.3 µg/ml + Mouse liver lysate in RIPA buffer at 35 µg
    Developed using the ECL technique

    Predicted band size : 25 kDa
    Observed band size : 28 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Primary incubation was 1 hour.
  • Immunocytochemical immunoflurescence analysis of PFA-fixed human neuroblastoma cell line, labelling TREM2 using ab95470 at a dilution of 1/200 incubated for 2 hours and 24°C in 0.1M PBST with 10% donkey serum. Permeablisation was accomplished using 0.1M PBS with 1% Triton X. Blocking was done with 10% donkey serum in PBST and incubated for 30 minutes at 24°C. The secondary used was a polyclonal donkey anti-goat Alexa Fluor® 568 conjugate.
