Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab27171 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
IHC-FoFr Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P 1/100.
ICC/IF 1/200. Fix cells with paraformaldehyde and block with BSA.
WB Use a concentration of 1.25 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 15 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.


  • Function
    B-FABP could be involved in the transport of a so far unknown hydrophobic ligand with potential morphogenic activity during CNS development. It is required for the establishment of the radial glial fiber system in developing brain, a system that is necessary for the migration of immature neurons to establish cortical layers.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in brain and other neural tissues.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family.
  • Domain
    Forms a beta-barrel structure that accommodates the hydrophobic ligand in its interior.

  • ab27171 at 1/200 staining human foetal neural precursors by ICC/IF. The cells were paraformaldehyde fixed, blocked with BSA and incubated with the antibody for 12 hours. An Alexa Fluor ® 594 conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary.  Human neurons and astrocytes derived from neural precursors were used as the negative control. ab27171 has weak non-specific staining of the nucleolus however staining of the cytoplasm has not been detected in negative controls.
