    • Anti-Wnt3a antibody (ab28472) at 1 µg/ml + Mouse Wnt3a Full-length Recombinant Protein (Tagged) at 0.1 µg

      Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution

      Predicted band size : 39 kDa
      Observed band size : 68 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)

      ab28472 was tested against Mouse Wnt3a Full-length Recombinant Protein predicted to run at the molecular weight of 68kDa.

    • ab28472 stained human embryonic stem cells differentiated into a heterogeneous mix of cells at 5 ug/ml.
    • ab28472 staining Wnt3a in the dentate gyrus of rat bain tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections).
      Brains were sectioned in the coronal plane at 20 µm. The slides were left in a fume hood to dry overnight, then stored at -70°C. For each rat twelve sections through the dorsal hippocampus were analyzed. For single staining with Wnt3a, sections were incubated with ab28472 at 5 ug/ml in 0.5% Triton with 1% goat serum) overnight in a humidified chamber at room temperature. The following day, after two washes with KPBS, they were incubated in Alexa Fluor 568 goat anti-rabbit (1/200 in 0.5% Triton) for one hour, and washed twice with KPBS and covered slipped.
    • IHC-Wholemount image of Wnt3a (ab28472) on zebrafish larvae. Whole zebrafish larvae were fixed in paraformaldehyde and then permeabilized in proteinase K, before blocking in 5% serum for 1 hour at RT. The image above is a ventral view of the head, showing the ceratohyal cartilage (of the jaw).
