Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab47104 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 at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 22114330
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 3 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 38 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 32 kDa).
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.

  • All lanes : Anti-VDAC2 antibody (ab47104) at 2 µg/ml

    Lane 1 : Human brain cell lysate with no immunizing peptide
    Lane 2 : Human brain cell lysate with immunizing peptide

    Predicted band size : 32 kDa
    Observed band size : 38 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
  • IHC image of ab47104 staining in human hippocampus formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab47104, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

Thank you for your enquiry. The recognition of VDAC3 is because on the homology betweeen VDAC2 and VDAC3 (peptide immunogen sequence listed on datashee). Thus, a polyclonal antibody made against the particular VDAC sequence would be expected to reco...
