  • Immunofluorescnece analysis of COS-7 cells using ab66739 at a dilution of 1/200 - 1/1000, showing cytomembrane localization.
  • Immunofluorescnece analysis of L-02 cells using ab66739 at a dilution of 1/200 - 1/1000, showing cytomembrane localization.
  • Overlay histogram showing HepG2 cells stained with ab66379 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab66379, 2µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.
