Application Abreviews Notes
Flow Cyt 1/100.

ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.


WB 1/1000 - 1/10000. Predicted molecular weight: 50 kDa.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ICC/IF or IHC-P.
  • Target

    • Function

      Decarboxylates L-arginine to agmatine. Truncated splice isoforms probably lack activity.
    • Tissue specificity

      Highly expressed in brain. Also expressed in testis.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the Orn/Lys/Arg decarboxylase class-II family.

    • Overlay histogram showing SH-SY5Y cells stained with ab157214 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 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 (ab157214, 1/100 dilution) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H&L) (ab150077) at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit IgG (monoclonal) (1μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter. This antibody gave a positive signal in SH-SY5Y cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.
