Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent dilution.


  • ab13970 staining GFP in E10.5 mouse embryo sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-Fr - frozen sections).

    Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with PBS/0.5% Triton-X100 and blocked with protein block for 30 minutes at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/500) for 3 hours at 25°C. FITC-conjugated donkey anti-chicken IgY H&L (ab63507) (1/500) was used as the secondary antibody.

Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections)
Cryostat sections of E10.5 mouse embryo, which were fixed with PFA before gelatin/sucrose embedding.
Antigen retrieval is optional in this staining.
Primary antibody: Anti-GFP antibody (ab13970) 1:800 at 4 degree overnight.
Secondary antibody: Donkey Anti-Chicken (FITC) ab63507 at RT 4h (long incubation time of secondary would help to increase the signal).

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

I managed to find antibodies against rat GFAP, FOX3, Iba1, and CD68 all raised in different hosts (chicken, rabbit, goat, and mouse, respectively). They each are highly rated by other researchers and have numerous specific published references. The list for these 4 antibodies is given below:
1. GFAP ab4674 (https://www.abcam.com/gfap-antibody-astrocyte-marker-ab4674.html)
2. FOX3 ab104225 (https://www.abcam.com/fox3neun-antibody-ab104225.html)
3. Iba1 ab5076 (https://www.abcam.com/iba1-antibody-ab5076.html)
4. CD68 ab31630 (https://www.abcam.com/cd68-antibody-ed1-ab31630.html)

I also compiled anti-chicken, rabbit, goat, and mouse secondaries with separate emission spectra. We don't have secondaries for these species that weren't raised in any of the 4 species conjugated to a fluorescent protein with a similar spectrum to DAPI. Thus, I think your best bet is to obtain a far-red filter (Cy5), that way you could still stain with DAPI as well. The donkey secondaries that I found with separate emission spectra are listed below:
1. anti-chicken: FITC (https://www.abcam.com/chicken-igy-secondary-antibody-ab63507.html)
2. anti-rabbit: DyLight 594 (Similar spectrum to Texas Red) (https://www.abcam.com/donkey-polyclonal-secondary-antibody-to-rabbit-igg-h-l-dylight-594-pre-adsorbed-ab96921.html)
3. anti-goat: DyLight 650 (Similar spectrum to Cy5) (https://www.abcam.com/donkey-polyclonal-secondary-antibody-to-goat-igg-h-l-dylight-650-pre-adsorbed-ab96938.html)
4. anti-mouse: DyLight 550 (similar spectrum to TRITC) (https://www.abcam.com/donkey-polyclonal-secondary-antibody-to-mouse-igg-h-l-dylight-550-ab96876.html)

The other antibodies you chose (Nogo, heavy neurofilament, caspase 3) seem to be good choices as well as they are tested in formaldehyde fixed, frozen sections via IHC in rat. Below are the antibodies we discussed against those three proteins:
1. anti-Nogo (https://www.abcam.com/nogo-antibody-ab32298.html)
2. anti-heavy neurofilament (https://www.abcam.com/200-kd-neurofilament-heavy-antibody-ab134459.html)
3. anti-caspase 3 (https://www.abcam.com/active-caspase-3-antibody-ab13847.html)
