Thank you for submitting an Abreview for Ab71578.

We were surprised to see that you were unable to get satisfactory results when using this product in western blot on human cell types. As this product is guaranteed to work in this application, I would like offer assistance to help you to achieve the best results possible. The protocol details which you have provided us indicate that this product should have worked however I was wondering if you could provide me with some additional information. Could you outline any troubleshooting steps which you attempted such as changes in antibody or protein concentrations, transfer procedures, positive or negative controls and the like?

This product is covered by our Abpromise guarantee. If we cannot remedy this issue and this is a product that you have purchased within the last six months, we will replace or refund it under our Abpromise guarantee, as you are using it according to specifications listed on our datasheet.
I hope that this information is helpful. Please let me know if you have any questions or there are other ways that Abcam may help you meet your research goals.

Thank you for your response.

While there were non specific bands lower in the gel which are around 50kDA, the upper region of interest appeared very near the top directly below the stacking layer were there seemed to be a wavy band. Running the gel longer will allow any proteins which may be in this area to resolve. As there is no non specific binding in this region use of the higher concentration of antibody will not have adverse affect and may approach the threshold for affinity of the product with the target.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Hello, We purchased the rabbit anti-human DOCK5 antibody ab71578 in January 2012 to visualize the strong signals for this protein that we have obtained from our mass spectrometry analyses by Western blotting. Since you didn't have a picture of a WB included on your product info, I agreed to do an Abreview for this antibody with the image for WB.   Before I submit my Abreview and ask for a refund for this antibody, I'm wondering whether you would like to comment on these WBs and maybe troubleshoot the issues with me.   Details of the experiments with pictures in the attached file:   Panel A. Human keratinocyte lysates were immunoprecipitated with anti-human GSK3a antibody cross-linked to magnetic Dynabeads . Control IP was performed using the respective non-immune IgG. Co-immunoprecipitated complexes  eluted in glycine-HCl pH 2.8 and separated in a 4-15% gradient gel. Proteins were visualized by silver staining. Panel A. The gel was sliced, and the proteins within each of these fractions were analysed by mass spectrometry. The major protein specifically recognized in the fraction 2 in the sample immunoprecipitated with the GSK3a antibody was identified as human DOCK5. (The only other protein recognized was human keratin type II cytoskeletal, but this was also detected in the negative control sample.)    We then purchased the above-mentioned DOCK5 antibody to verify these results by WB and to further study the protein interactions. The pictures (C-E) show WBs from whole cell lysates (reduced samples) separated in 4/7.5% SDS-PAGE gels.  The general protocol was: The sample was run with  a molecular weight marker (Bio-Rad Precision Plus All Blue; 1 µl; shows up mainly in the 700 channel of the infrared reader) and transferred onto Hybond-ECL nitrocellulose membrane (Amersham, GE Healtcare). The membranes were blocked by incubating in Odyssey Blocking Buffer (Li-Cor) for 1h at RT. The primary antibody were diluted in the same blocking solution containing 0.1% Tween 20 and added to the membranes for o/n at +4ºC. The membranes were washed twice with TBST and then incubated with appropriate IRDye secondary antibodies (Li-Cor)  diluted 1/20,000 in the same blocking solution containing 0.1% Tween 20 and 0.02% SDS for 1h at RT. Membranes were then washed twice briefly and then four times 5min with TBST, followed by a 5min wash with TBS.  The detection was performed using Li-Cor Odyssey infrared reader.  Panel C. Primary antibody dilution 1/1000 (Abcam recommended dilution range for WB: 1/200 - 1/2000), secondary antibody used was donkey anti-rabbit IRDye800. Panel D. To exclude the possibility that the background results from the secondary antibody, the blot was redone using goat anti-rabbit IRDye680 as the secondary antibody. The signal obtained with this secondary antibody shows on a detection channel that is different from IRDye800)  Panel E. Another gel probed with the primary antibody further diluted to 1/2000 followed by goat anti-rabbit IRDye680   I was not happy with the results of my Western blots. The antibody was  non-specific, resulting in numerous bands in the blots. Moreover, it didn't recognize a protein with the indicated molecular weight (215 kDa). There is a faint band at >250 kDa, but it is not matching the protein seen in panels A and B.   Diluting the antibodies further or increasing the washing times did not improve the  specificity of antibody binding.    Looking forward for hearing back from you.

Thank you for contacting us.

I am sorry to hear of the troubles which you have been experiencing with this product. Having reviewed the protocol and images which you have kindly provided I would like to suggest a few suggestions which may help.

DOCK5 should be over 200kDA when transferring large proteins we suggest adding SDS to a final concentration of 0.1% in the transfer buffer and reducing the methanol percentage to 10%. Methanol is only necessary when using nitrocellulose membranes and may be removed all together when using PVDF.

I would also suggest running your sample in a low concentration gel, 8% or less and allowing the sample to migrate farther.

Finally I would suggest using lower dilutions of this antibody such as 1:500 or 1:200.

Your Abreview code will be redeemable regardless of positive or negative review. Please be sure to include the code in the additional notes section of your review.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
