Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab77581 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 18 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 20 kDa).



  • Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 2: ARF6 knockout HAP1 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 3: HeLa cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 4: HepG2 cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab77581 observed at 18 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.

    ab77581 was shown to recognize ARF6 when ARF6 knockout samples were used, along with additional cross-reactive bands. Wild-type and ARF6 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab77581 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted 1 μg/mL and 1/10 000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed (ab216773) and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed (ab216776) secondary antibodies at 1/10 000 dilution for 1 h at room temperature before imaging.

  • IHC image of ARF6 staining in human liver carcinoma formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab77581, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.
  • All lanes : Anti-ARF6 antibody (ab77581) at 1 µg/ml

    Lane 1 : HeLa (Human epithelial carcinoma cell line) Whole Cell Lysate
    Lane 2 : HEK293 (Human embryonic kidney cell line) Whole Cell Lysate
    Lane 3 : HepG2 (Human hepatocellular liver carcinoma cell line) Whole Cell Lysate
    Lane 4 : Human liver tissue lysate - total protein (ab29889)

    Lysates/proteins at 10 µg per lane.

    All lanes : Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 20 kDa
    Observed band size: 18 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?

    We hypothesize that the 18 kDa band represents the mature form of ARF6.
  • ICC/IF image of ab77581 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 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 (ab77581, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit 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. This antibody also gave a positive result in 100% methanol fixed (5 min) HeLa cells at 1µg/ml.

Merci pour votre requête.

Le laboratoire a testé cet anticorps sur en gel migré BisTris 10% ou 4-12%, en tampon MES. La membrane était bloqué ensuite en 5%BSA en 0.1TBST. L'incubation de l'anticorps s'est fait à une dilution de 1/1000 dans le tampon de blocage pour la nuit à 4°C. Les rinçages se sont fait enTBS Tween 0.1%.

J'espère que ces informations vous sont utiles. Si jamais vous avez des problèmes avec un de nos produits, veuillez ne pas hésiter à nous recontacter avec plus de détails.
