Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab40653 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
WB 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 49 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 49 kDa).Can be blocked with Dopamine Receptor D1 peptide (ab137968). With this antibody, we have found that blocking with 5% goat or donkey serum significantly reduces background as compared to BSA or milk.
ICC/IF 1/5000.
IHC-P 1/500.



  • ab40653 (1:500) staining Dopamine Receptor D1 in human cerebellum using an automated system (DAKO Autostainer Plus). Using this protocol there is strong staining of cytoplasmic and membrane regions in the fibrous glial cells.
    Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3 in 1 AR buffer EDTA pH 9.0 in a DAKO PT link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 mins. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 min and detected with Dako envision flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that, for manual staining, optimization of primary antibody concentration and incubation time is recommended. Signal amplification may be required.

Thank you for your patience.

I am happy to confirm that we were able to add the immunogen peptides for the antibody anti-Dopamine receptor 1 (ab40653) and the anti-Dopamine receptor 3 (ab40655).

The immunogen peptide for ab40653 can be found with the catalog number ab137968 https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=137968 (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=137968).

The immunogen peptide for ab40655 can be found with the catalog number ab137997 https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=137997 (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=137997).

I hope the peptides are useful for you. Please do not hesitate to contact us again, should you need any additional information or should youhave any other questions.

I wish you a good weekend!

Thank you for your inquiry. We would guarantee both ab20066 and ab40653 to work with rat samples in WB in accordance with our Abpromise. https://www.abcam.com/index.html?pageconfig=resource&rid=10372 I wouldn't be too concerned about the linker on the immunogen.  Most customers will choose an antibody based on the data we have on the datasheet.  These antibodies are more or less the same in terms of immunogen, testing information, purity, etc. We have specifically tested both in various regions of PLP fixed Rat brain sections. This includes Medial septum, Nucleus accumbens, Dentate gyrus, Globus pallidus, Medial forebrain bundle, Cortex regions 1-3, Substantia Nigra reticulata, and the Ventral tegmental area.  We have 2 references for ab20066: https://www.abcam.com/Dopamine-Receptor-D1-antibody-ab20066-references.html For ab40653, we do know of a rat-specific reference in WB. https://www.abcam.com/Dopamine-Receptor-D1-antibody-ab40653-references.html Essentially, we would guarantee either to work in the way you are testing, and these antibodies are essentially very similar. I hope this information helps.  Please contact us with any other questions.
