Ordered and aliquotted ab6586 but then saw that Abcam recommends using the antibody in non-denatured conditions.

Thanks for your call today and for your questions about our collagen IV antibodies.
As we discussed, I would still recommend trying ab6586 with your standard Western blotting conditions. We recommend non-denatured conditions because the affinity of the antibody is higher in these conditions, but I did find user-submitted Abreviews in which the antibody was used in denatured conditions and the results were satisfactory (rated "Excellent" by the reviewers)-
Please note that the expected band size in these conditions is between 200 and 250 kDa.
I hope this information will be useful, but if you have any further questions or need anything else, please let me know and I'll be happy to help. I apologize for any confusion regarding the information on our datasheet, and I will see if we can update the Western blot application information.
