  • Anti-AKR1C1/AKR1C2 antibody (ab96087) at 1/1000 dilution + Raji whole cell lysate at 30 µg

    Predicted band size: 37 kDa

    10% SDS-PAGE
  • Immunohistochemical analysis of AKR1C1 in paraffin embedded MDA-MB-468 xenograft, using ab96087 at a 1/500 dilution.
  • ICC/IF image of ab96087 stained SKNSH cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab96087 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for contacting us. The immunogen for ab96087 shows 97% identity with human AKR1C2, so it will likely cross-react. This has not been confirmed experimentally. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
