  • ICC/IF image of ab103439 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde 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 ab103439 at 1/200 dilution overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) (ab96899) used at a 1/250 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.

  • Anti-GLG1 antibody (ab103439) at 1/100 dilution + MCF7 cell line lysates at 35 µg

  • ab103439 staining Golgi Complex in murine spinal cord motor neurons by Immunohistochemistry (PFA perfusion fixed frozen sections).
    Tissue was fixed in paraformaldehyde, permeabilized using 0.2% Triton/PBS, blocked with 2.5% serum for 1 hour at 20°C and then incubated with ab103439 at a 1/500 dilution for 12 hours at 4°C. The secondary used was an Alexa-Fluor 488 conjugated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal used at a 1/500 dilution.

Thank you for taking time to contact us and forward an image of your staining. I am sorry to hear that this antibody is not providing satisfactory results.

The details provided will enable us to investigate this case and will provide us with vital information for monitoring product quality.

I'm copying the lab's IHC-P protocol below. Could you take a look and see if it is similar to the protocol you've tested? If so, and you don't think there are any changes to make, I would be happy to offer you a replacement or refund.

Preparing Tissue Sections for Immunostaining:

 Fix the tissue in 10% formalin at 4°C overnight.

 Embed fixed tissue in paraffin.

 Mount tissue sections on slides.

 Clear the paraffin with xylene for ten minutes; move slides to a fresh dish of xylene for an additional ten minutes. NOTE: Perform all xylene washes in a fume hood!

 Rinse the slides twice for 2 minutes in 100% alcohols (18:1:1 100% ethanol: 100% methanol: 100% isopropanol).

 Rinse the slides twice for 2 minutes in a 95% solution of the 100% alcohols.

 Place slides in an 80% solution of the 100% alcohols for 2 minutes, followed by deionized water for 5 minutes.

 Rinse slides several times with fresh deionized water followed by another five minutes wash using fresh water.

Sodium Citrate Antigen Retrieval:

 Place slides in a glass slide holder and fill in the rest of the rack with blank slides (10 totals) to ensure even heating.

 Place rack in 600 ml of 10 mM sodium citrate, pH 6.0 in a glass 2 L-beaker. Mark a line at the top of the liquid on the beaker.

 Microwave for 20 min total, replacing evaporated water every 5 min.

 Cool slides for 20 min.

 Wash 4 × 3 min in ddH2O, and 3 min in 1 × PBS.


 Block endogenous peroxidases by soaking slides in a solution of 90% methanol/3% H2O2 for 15 minutes at room temperature. Wash 3 × in PBS.

 Immerse slides in a dish containing blocking buffer (serum from host species of secondary antibody to be used, diluted 1:10 in TBS). Incubate at 37°C for one hour.

Incubation with Primary Antibodies

 Cover the tissue sections with primary antibody diluted in blocking buffer. Antibody is diluted 1:50 and 1:100. Incubate for 1 hour at 37°C.

 Blot excess liquid from slides and rinse three times in PBS for five minutes each wash.

Incubation with Secondary Antibodies

 Cover the tissue sections with secondary antibody diluted in blocking buffer according to manufacturer’s instructions. We routinely use prediluted universal secondary antibody (Jackson ImmunoResearch Laboratories). Incubate at 37°C for 30 min.

 Blot excess liquid and rinse twice in TBS for five minutes each wash.

Counterstaining and Visualization

 Counterstain with Hematoxylin.

 Rinse several times in deionized water. Blot excess water around tissue, then apply one drop of mounting media to tissue and place coverslip over slide. Seal with nail polish.

Citrate Solutions:

Description: Formalin or other aldehyde fixation forms protein cross-links that mask the antigenic sites in tissue specimens, thereby giving weak or false negative staining for immunohistochemical detection of certain proteins. The citrate based solution is designed to break the protein cross-links, thereby unmasking the antigens and epitopes in formalin-fixed and paraffin embedded tissue sections and enhancing the staining intensity of antibodies.
