    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 45 kDa
    Observed band size: 48 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at: 12 kDa, 36 kDa, 68 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 30 seconds

    This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 5% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab124296 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution.
