Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab52894 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|WB||1/1000 - 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 175 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 134 kDa).Can be blocked with EGFR peptide (ab204282).
This product yielded a strong signal in western blot using A431 (human squamous carcinoma) lysate which naturally overexpresses the EGFR protein. Western blot conditions may need to be optimised for cell lines and tissues that express lower levels of endogenous EGFR
For unpurified use at 1/50.
For unpurified use at 1/100.
ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
The mouse and rat recommendation is based on the WB results. This antibody may not be suitable for IHC with mouse or rat samples.
|ICC/IF||1/250 - 1/500.|
|IHC-Fr||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour before being incubated with unpurified ab52894 overnight at 4°C in the presence of loading control ab18058 (Mouse monoclonal [SPM227] to Vinculin diluted 1:10000). Antibody binding was detected using IR-labelled goat anti-Rabbit Ab at a 1:10,000 dilution for one hour at room temperature before imaging.

After washing with PBS 3 times for 10 minutes at RT, samples were equilibrated overnight at 4°C in 15% sucrose solution and then mounted in Tissue-Tek optimal cutting temperature (OCT) compound (Electron Microscopy Services). 12 μm sagittal and coronal sections were cut on a Leica CM1950 cryostat onto Fisher SuperFrost Plus slides and stored at -80°C. Samples were dried at 37°C for 30 minutes before a 1 hour incubation with gelatin block (5% normal donkey serum, 3% BSA, 8% gelatin, and 0.1 Triton X-100 in 1X PBS). Slides were incubated with primary antibodies (Rt-Ki67 and Rb-EGFR) diluted in gelatin block overnight at 4°C and washed 3 times for 5 minutes in 1X PBS at RT. Secondary antibodies (Donkey anti-rat Alexa Fluor®488 and Donkey anti-rabbit Rhodamine Red-X) were also diluted in gelatin block and added to the slide for 2 hours at RT. DAPI (1/2000) was added to the slide for 5 minutes at RT. Samples were mounted in 100 μl ProLong Gold and covered by glass coverslips.
