DescriptionRabbit monoclonal [EP1140Y] to Flt3 ligand/Flt3L
The antibody has been tested against recombinant protein in western blotting, we do not have data regarding recognition of endogenous protein. We suggest K562 and HL-60 cells could be expressing Flt3 ligand/Flt3L. The antibody was raised against the extracellular domain of the protein, however please note permeabilisation in FACS greatly improves the signal.
Tested applicationsSuitable for: ICC/IF, WB, Flow Cyt, IHC-Pmore details
Species reactivityReacts with: Human
Predicted to work with: Rhesus monkey
Synthetic peptide corresponding to Human Flt3 ligand/Flt3L aa 150 to the C-terminus.
Database link: P49771
- IHC: Human liver. WB: recombinant proteinICC/IF: MCF7Flow Cyt: Hela
Mouse, Rat: We have preliminary internal testing data to indicate this antibody may not react with these species. Please contact us for more information.

Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence analysis of MCF7 (Human breast adenocarcinoma epithelial cell) cells labeling Flt3 ligand/Flt3L with Purified ab52648 at 1:100 dilution. Cells were fixed in 100% Methanol and permeabilized with None. ab150077 Goat anti rabbit IgG(Alexa Fluor ® 488) was used as the secondary antibody at 1:1000 dilution. DAPI nuclear counterstain. PBS instead of the primary antibody was used as the secondary antibody only control.
