Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab9720 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
ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml.
Neutralising Use at an assay dependent dilution. To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of hMIG (100.00 ng/ml), a concentration of 5.0 - 7.0 µg/ml of this antibody is required
WB Use 0.1µg for 100.2 cells.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 0.25 - 0.5 µg/ml.

  • ab9720 staining CXCL9 in human renal tumor with parenchyma tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue underwent heat mediated antigen retrieval in sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0). The primary antibody was used at 0.25 ug/ml and incubated with sample at 4°C overnight. A HRP-labeled polymer detection system was used with a DAB chromogen.

  • ab9720 staining CXCL9 in Human tonsil (periphery) tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked for 5 minutes at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100) for 30 minutes at 25°C. A Biotin-conjugated Goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.

Thank you for contacting us. We do not currently have any feedback from customers or lab testing regarding whether it would be possible to conjugate either of these antibodies to gold, and we therefore do not have any recommendations for a pH or concentration for the conjuagtion process. I am sorry I could not be more helpful, please let me know if you need any additional information or assistance.

Thank you for contacting us for technical support regarding ab9720. This antibody has not been tested on mouse tissue therefore we do not know what sort of banding pattern it gives with MIG of this species I'm afraid. There is 73% homology between the human protein and the mouse protein, so the antibody may react to the mouse protein. The problem of non specific bands could be due to a number of reasons: -degradation of the protein in your mouse brain lysates if there is not enough protease inhibitors in the lysis buffer -blocking conditions are not adequate (too much or not not enough blocking, wrong blocking buffer) -the antibody could maybe be diluted more? I would be happy to look at your protocol in detail to provide more specific recommendations. To help you put your protocol together easily we have a short questionnaire accessible via this link: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?section=western&pageconfig=technical&intAbID=9720&mode=questionaire If you can please put it to my attention I will personally look into this matter. I would encourage you to submit an Abreview to share your findings with other researchers, via the online datasheet (tab Abreview). The Abreview system allows researchers to submit reviews of our products in exchange for Abpoints. Abpoints can be redeemed for rewards such as Amazon.com gift certificates or discounts on future antibody purchases.

Unfortunately, this antibody has not been tested for IHC in frozen sections, so we can't guarantee that it will work.
