Question (15514) | Anti-Calcium channel L type DHPR alpha 2 subunit/CACNA2D1 antibody [20A] (ab2864)

Go to datasheet (ab2864)

Question

Does your antibody work on paraffin-embedded tissue samples and is there any availability evidence of reactivity with cardiac DHPR a2 subunits? (I noticed that the Western blot trials and the background references listed on the datasheet were all done using skeletal muscle DHPR subunits).

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry. Ab2864 detects 1,4 dihydropyridine (DHP) receptor alpha 2 subunit from human, rat, mouse, guinea pig and rabbit skeletal and cardiac muscle. To our knowledge, this antibody has yet to be tested in IHC on paraffin-embedded tissue sections. All tested applications are specified on Abcam product datasheets.
