IHC - Wholemount 1/400.


  • RelevanceThe V5 epitope tag is derived from a small epitope (Pk) present on the P and V proteins of the paramyxovirus of simian virus 5 (SV5). The V5 tag is usually used with all 14 amino acids (GKPIPNPLLGLDST), although it has also been used with a shorter 9 amino acid sequence (IPNPLLGLD).

Thank you for contacting us.
Unfortunately, as you have discovered from the datasheet of the anti-V5 antibody (ab9137), this antibody has not been used in whole mount IHC to our knowledge as yet. This does not mean that the antibody would not work...

The V5 epitope tag is used in transfection procedures in which the gene of interest is cloned in frame with the codons for the V5 epitope (GKPIPNPLLGLDST). The resulting expressed protein is tagged with the V5 epitope, which can be tracked with antibo...
