    We have not tested this antibody with Barley samples however as this antibody supposed to react with plant samples hence the possibility of its cross reactivity with Barley is quite high.

    Thank you for contacting us. Because we carry over 70,000 products, it isn't feasible for us to keep small sample sizes of our products.

    To our knowledge, ab77003 has not been tested inimmunogold EM. Therefore, I can offer a discount off a future purchase if you buy ab77003 now, test it in immunogold EM and submit feedback to us in the form of an Abreview. It doesn’t matter whether the Abreview is positive or negative, we would just really like to receive your feedback. The discount would be to the value of ab77003 off a future order.

    If you are interested in this offer, please follow these steps:

    1. Reply to this e-mail to let me know that you would like to proceed and test ab77003 in immunogold EM. I will then send a discount code. This code must be issued before purchasing ab77003 so please wait for my reply before ordering.

    2. Purchase ab77003 either by phone, fax, or online (www.abcam.com).

    3. Test it in immunogold EM.

    4. Let us know the results, positive or negative, using our Abreview system (this will take about 10 minutes and images are great if you have them!). To find out how to submit an Abreview, please visit: https://www.abcam.com/abreviews.

    Thank you very much for contacting us.
    Apparently, Chung and colleagues performed their SDS-PAGE with and without 6 M urea, as reported in their publication (attached). You may find details about this protocol in the Materials and Methods section, or could enquire with the authors, if you would like to gain more information.
    To our knowledge though, customised protocols are not required for this antibody and it should work with the standard protocols, which you may find attached or on the datasheet (Protocols tab) or on our website https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=popular_protocols.
    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
