We don’t recommend this antibody for mouse in IHC. In our hands mouse tissues showed non-specific staining.

Target

  • Relevance
    The H-H-H-H-H-H motif is used as a tag on many recombinant proteins to facilitate purification. The antibody recognizes the His-tag fused to the amino- or carboxy- termini of targeted proteins in transfected or transformed cells.
  • Cellular localization
    Depends upon the localization of the parent protein tagged with hexahistidine.
  • Alternative names
    • 6 His epitope tag antibody
    • Hexa His tag antibody
    • HHHHHH epitope tag antibody
    • HHHHHH tag antibody
    • His tag antibody
    • Polyhistidine Tag antibody

Images

  • His-tagged Staphylococcus aureus cas9 was immunoprecipitated from 0.35 mg of HEK-293T (human epithelial cell line from embryonic kidney transformed with large T antigen) transfected with a His-tagged Staphylococcus aureus cas9 (J7RUA5; aa1-1053; 125 kDa) construct, whole cell lysate with ab213204 at 1/30 dilution. Western blot was performed from the immunoprecipitate using ab213204 at 1/1000 dilution. VeriBlot for IP secondary antibody (HRP) (ab131366), was used as secondary antibody at 1/10000 dilution.

    Lane 1: HEK-293T transfected with His-tagged Staphylococcus aureus cas9 construct, whole cell lysate 10 μg (Input). 

    Lane 2: ab213204 IP in HEK-293T transfected with His-tagged Staphylococcus aureus cas9 construct, whole cell lysate. 

    Lane 3: Rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730) instead of ab213204 in HEK-293T transfected with His-tagged Staphylococcus aureus cas9 construct, whole cell lysate.

    Blocking/Dilution buffer: 5% NFDM/TBST.

    Exposure time: 1 second.

  • Chromatin was prepared from MCF7 (human breast adenocarcinoma cell line) cells transfected with 6X His-tagged GATA3 according to the Abcam X-ChIP protocol. Cells were fixed with formaldehyde for 10 minutes. The ChIP was performed with 25µg of chromatin, 2µg of ab213204 (blue), and 20µl of A/G sepharose beads slurry (10µl of sepharose A beads + 10µl of sepharose G beads). 2μg of rabbit normal IgG was added to the beads control (yellow).  The immunoprecipitated DNA was quantified by real time PCR (Sybr green approach).

    ChIP was performed according to the literature (PMID:22951069).
