Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    ELISA: 1/11 000.
    WB: Use at an assay dependent dilution.

    The Western blot displays a multiple band pattern. This is due to the reactivity not only with the hexon, but also with the other structural proteins associated with the hexon to make up the assembly. Bands at ~28, 29, 32, 35, 45, 50, 63, 65, 74, 82 kD and possibly more could be observed.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

    Thank you for taking the time to complete our questionnaire and contact us. I am sorry to hear you have had difficulty obtaining satisfactory results from this antibody.

    According to our records, the Western blot for this antibody displays a multiple band pattern. This is due to the reactivity not only with the hexon, but also with the other structural proteins associated with the hexon to make up the assembly. Bands at ˜28, 29, 32, 35, 45, 50, 63, 65, 74, 82 kD and possibly more could be observed.

    However, I am happy to give some suggestions that may help optimize the results from this antibody:

    -In order to avoid protein degradation products, and therefore lower MW bands, it is crucial to use phosphatase and protease inhibitors in the sample preparation. I would also suggest using RIPA buffer to lysate the cell preparation.

    -We recommend using reducing conditions (boiling and using a reducing agent such as BME or SDS) unless otherwise stated on the datasheet. This will ensure the protein is in the correct conformation to run at the correct Molecular Weight and for the antibody to run.

    -As stated in the datasheet, the storage instructions indicate to add glycerol to a final volume of 50%.

    -Please make sure the secondary antibody works properly with other primaries, in order to dismiss secondary antibody failure.

    I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further assistance.
