• Product name

  • Description

    Rabbit polyclonal to FHL2
  • Host species

  • Specificity

    Reactivity with mouse FHL2 is unlikely owing to divergence of this ortholog from the peptide used for antibody production. The epitope recognized by ab1237 maps to a region between residues 175 and 225 of human Four and a Half LIM domains 2 using the numbering given in entry NP_963849.1 (GeneID 2274).
  • Tested applications

  • ICC/IF image of ab12327 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab12327, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

Le laboratoire m'a informé que le peptide bloquant est disponible à la vente, il sera ajouté au catalogue dans la journée d'aujourd'hui ou au plus tard demain. Je vous enverrai la référence de ce produit quand la fiche technique aura été créée. La séquence de ce peptide est confidentielle. Néanmoins, le laboratoire m'a informé que l'épitope de ab12327 est situé dans la région aa 175 - 225 de la FHL2 humaine, référence NP_963849.1 (GeneID 2274). Nous n'avons malheureusement pas de données expérimentales pour cet anticorps sur macrophages. Un lien intéressant et utile pour connaitre le niveau d'expression de FHL2 dans différents tissus est : http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/UniGene/ESTProfileViewer.cgi?uglist=Hs.443687 . Vous pourrez peut-être déterminer de bons contrôles positifs et négatifs. J'espère que ces informations vous seront utiles. N'hésitez pas à nous contacter de nouveau si vous avez d'autres questions.
