Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab103016 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
IHC-P Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 55 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 47 kDa).


  • Function

    This is one of the several different receptors for 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin), a biogenic hormone that functions as a neurotransmitter, a hormone, and a mitogen. The activity of this receptor is mediated by G proteins that stimulate adenylate cyclase. It has a high affinity for tricyclic psychotropic drugs.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in several human brain regions, most prominently in the caudate nucleus.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell membrane.
  • Information by UniProt
  • Database links

  • IHC image of 5HT6 Receptor staining in Mouse Brain formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond™ 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 ab103016, 0.5 µg/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.

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 47 kDa
    Observed band size: 55 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
    Additional bands at: 41 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 30 seconds

    5HT6 Receptor contains a potential glycosylation site (SwissProt) which may explain its migration at a higher molecular weight than predicted.

Merci de nous avoir contactés et désolé pour le délai de notre réponse.
J'ai contacté mes collègues du laboratoire, ils n'ont malheureusement pas testé cet anticorps avec un contrôle négatif. Les tests de caractérisation montrent une bande à ˜55 kDa avec des lysats de cerveau de souris.
Afin de comparer et confirmer ou non les résultats obtenus avec le ab103016 je peux, si vous le désirez, vous envoyer une unité gratuite de ab101912, un autre anti-récepteur 5HT6 testé en Western Blot et chez la souris: www.abcam.com/ab101912 .
Merci de me confirmer que vous acceptez cette résolution. Alternativement je peux également éditer un avoir contre la commande originale.
