Answer

Thank you for contacting us. Because we carry over 70,000 products, it isn't feasible for us to keep small sample sizes of our products.

We are happy to reassure our customers that all of our products are covered by our Abpromise, which guarantees that the product will work in the applications and species specified on the datasheet, or we will offer a replacement, credit, or refund within 6 months of purchase.

If the product is to be used in an untested species or application, you may be eligible for our testing discount program if the antibody has not yet been purchased. Please contact our Scientific Support team by replying to this email prior to purchase for more information.

Otherwise, we like to encourage all of our customers to submit an Abreview via the online product datasheet. We always appreciate customer feedback, whether positive or negative, and we make all product information available to researchers. Plus, each Abreview earns Abpoints that can be used for discounts on future purchases or rewards such as Amazon.com gift certificates.

Answer

Thank you for taking the time to complete our questionnaire and send the images, I appreciate your time. The details you have kindly provided will enable us to investigate this case for you and this is also helpful in our records for monitoring of quality. Reviewing the results from ab112571, the blot looks as we would expect it to with a band at about 40 kDa. I am sorry I have not yet received a response from our source regarding the testing on heart lysate. I will let you know as soon as I have further information. The results from ab11178 are concerning as this has only a band at 70 kDa. The response from our source regarding testing in kidney lysate is that as far as they are aware, GEMC1 is known to be expressed at a reasonable level in kidney. I am sorry they currently have no further images to provide. I would like to offer some suggestions to help optimise the results from this antibody. I would also appreciate if you can confirm some further details: 1. I can recommend to aliquot and store the antibody at -20oC as directed on the datasheet. This will ensure the stability of the antibody is maintained and that we can continue to provide our Abpromise guarantee. 2. It is possible the 70 kD band may be a dimer and I can recommend to ensure the sample is adequately reduced and denatured. The SDS buffer should contain beta mercaptoethanol and be boiled for at least 5 minutes if this has not already been tried. 3. I can suggest to use a suitable lysis buffer if you have not already done so. I can recommend to lyse the cells in RIPA buffer before adding SDS samples buffer and boiling. SDS loading buffer alone will not necessarily lyse the cells and/or provide a suitable protein preparation. 4. We recommend to load 20 - 30 ug of total protein per lane of the gel from whole cell lysate. For purified protein, this should be 10 - 100 ng. 5. Regarding the recombinant protein samples, there are inherent difficulties with antibody detection of recombinant proteins that I can recommend considering. This may be a biological artifact rather than a problem with the antibody. Could you confirm that the protein transfected is full length and includes the immunogen sequence? Also, if the recombinant GEMC1 is tagged, it is possible that the tag is preventing access to the antibody. Could you confirm at which region of the protein the tag has been placed? 6. Could you confirm the species from which the recombinant GEMC1 gene was taken? 7. What dilution of antibody was used and how long for? I can recommend to try the antibody at 1:250 overnight at 4oC if not already tried. 8. I can recommend to try a loading control in order to assess the quality of the sample. As previously discussed, in the event that a product is not functioning in the applications cited on the product data sheet (and the problem has been reported within 6 months of purchase), we will be pleased to provide a credit note, free of charge replacement or refund. I hope this information is 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.
