• Product name
    Anti-CEBP Alpha antibody [15C8]
    See all CEBP Alpha primary antibodies
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [15C8] to CEBP Alpha
  • Host species
  • Specificity
    This antibody may cross react with glutamate--ammonia ligase domain containing 1 protein ((Lengsin) Lens glutamine synthase-like) as it has 8/10 aa identical to the immunogen used to generate ab15047 (this protein is part of the Glutamate synthetase family so its compartmentalization to the cytoplasm) unlike CEDPA which is found in the nucleus.
  • Tested applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab15047 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 at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 45 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 45 kDa).Can be blocked with Mouse CEBP Alpha peptide (ab39791).
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.


  • Function
    C/EBP is a DNA-binding protein that recognizes two different motifs: the CCAAT homology common to many promoters and the enhanced core homology common to many enhancers.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the bZIP family. C/EBP subfamily.
    Contains 1 bZIP domain.

Many thanks for your feedback, I have added a note on the datasheet following your expert advice and would love to find out if indeed the antibody detected the ligase in your cells. Thank you again for your help, I look forward to hearing from you,

As discussed earlier I enclose the links to the databases that I was looking at to find out if the antibody could be cross reacting with other proteins. The protein Glutamate--ammonia ligase domain containing 1 protein (Lengsin) Lens glutamine synth...
