Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab37171 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
IHC-P Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 33 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 33 kDa).


  • Function
    Receptor for EDA isoform A2, but not for EDA isoform A1. Mediates the activation of the NF-kappa-B and JNK pathways. Activation seems to be mediated by binding to TRAF3 and TRAF6.

Thank you for taking the time to complete our questionnaire and send these images. I am sorry to hear you have had difficulty obtaining satisfactory results from this antibody.
The details you have kindly provided will enable us to investigate this case for you and also gives us vital information for our monitoring of product quality
I appreciate the time you have spent in the laboratory and understand your concerns. It is regrettable the results have not been successful. I would like to reassure you that this antibody is tested and covered by our six month guarantee for WB and human samples. Regrettably in this case the product was purchased in 2011 (longer than six month ago) and is for this reason it is not covered by this guarantee.
I would like to offer some suggestions to help optimise the results. I would also appreciate if you can confirm some details of the procedure.
1. Could you confirm which secondary antibody exactly was used for this experiment? I have never heard of a secondary antibody raised in human. It would be helpful if you could forward the catalogue number and company name where it was purchased. I would be pleased to compare the secondary for suitability.
2. We would recommend it might be beneficial to integrate a loading control within the experiment if not already performed. A loading control will ensure that the sample is of good quality. Furthermore it will assess the transfer of the sample to the membrane.
3. Additionally we would suggest performing a no primary control if not already done. This will show if background that is detected might be due to non-specific binding of the secondary antibody.
4. Sometimes the change of blocking solution can improve the result of a WB. We would suggest it might be beneficial trying to block with 3-5% BSA instead of milk. An example for how the blocking can affect the result is shown for our GAPDH antibody ab9385 here: www.abcam.com/ab9385 .
We are happy to offer this technical support. I hope this information may be helpful, thank you for your cooperation. Should the suggestions not improve the results, please do not hesitate to contact me again with the further requested details.
