    • Immunohistochemical analysis of mouse frozen cerebellum tissue sections with ab108404 labelling Calbindin at 1/500. Sections were fixed with 4% Paraformaldehyde and permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100. ab150077, Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/1000) was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue).  The image shows specific staining on Purkinje cells of mouse cerebellum.

      Secondary antibody only was used as negative control and is shown in the inset.
