Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab41525 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/8000. Detects a band of approximately 45-47 kDa.Can be blocked with Glucose Transporter GLUT3 peptide (ab105625). Detects a band of approximately 45-47 kDa using 10ug hippocampal plasma membranes as antigen. The samples MUST NOT be boiled before running the gel as highly hydrophobic membrane proteins, like glucose transporters, aggregate severely at high temperatures due to the hydrophobic effect, which increases as a direct function of temperature. If the samples are boiled, much of the transporter will aggregate so severely it doesn't enter the running gel and higher order oligomers will be observed.
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.

Use at an assay dependent dilution. 2µl ab41525 will immunoprecipitate 80-85% GLUT3 from 250µg rat solublized hippocampal membranes.

IHC-Fr 1/250.
ELISA 1/25000.
Dot blot 1/25000. With solublized hippocampal plasma membranes.
IHC-FrFl Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 4 µg/ml.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.

  • ab41525 staining GLUT3 in human duodenum.
    Left panel: with primary antibody at 4 ug/ml. Right panel: isotype control.
    Sections were stained using an automated system (DAKO Autostainer Plus), at room temperature: sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3 in 1 AR buffers EDTA pH 9.0. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 mins. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 min and detected with Dako envision flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that for manual staining we recommend to optimize the primary antibody concentration and incubation time (overnight incubation), and amplification may be required.

Permeabilized using 0.1% Triton X-100 in 2% BSA for 15 minutes. Blocked with 2% BSA for 30 minutes at 22°C. Secondary used undiluted polyclonal goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 568 (red). Counterstain DAPI (blue).

Thank you for contacting Abcam earlier today.

I am sorry about the issues you are having with ab41525 in western blot and as I mentioned before the antibody is covered under our Abpromise for six months and is guaranteed to work in western blot on human and mouse samples . If the protocol tips that we discussed do not prove to be successful, please let me know and I would be happy to either send a replacement antibody or to process a refund.

If there is anything else I can help with, do not hesitate to contact me.

Vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage und für Ihre Geduld.

Leider haben wir für die Antikörper ab15311 und ab53095 kein Blockpeptid, und können auch keines herstellen oder beschaffen, aber wir haben eines für den ab41525. Dieses hat die Katalognummer ab105625

Click here (or use the following:

Als Carrier- Protein wurde KHL (Keyhole limpet hemocyanin) verwendet, welches laut BLAST keine Übereinstimmung mit der Immunogen- Sequenz aufweist. Wir sind daher genauso ratlos wie Sie bezüglich der Nebenbanden.

Ich hoffe, dies hilft Ihnen trotzdem weiter. Bitte zögern Sie nicht, sich wieder bei uns zu melden, falls Sie weitere Fragen haben.

Thank you for your participation in Abcam's post complaint survey.

I am sorry to hear that the replacement antibody ab68792 has not worked in mouse. Mouse is an untested species for this antibody and therefore, I had sent you also a discount code to be used on a future order, once you have submnitted your data in form of an Abreview. If you have not yet done, please submit your mouse data as Abreview (even if the data are negative), andyou can thenobtain a free antibody of your choice.
Please let me know if you need any help with this.

Also, if you'd like to send your protocol information to me, I can see if I can provide any troubleshooting advice to help overcome the problem.

If there is anything else I can do for you, or if you have further questions to any of our products (e.g. primary antibodies, lysates, secondary antibodies, kits, controls, gels, proteins/peptides, slides, biochemicals, conjugation kits), please let me know.

Thank you for your email.

Abreviews should reflect the customer's opinion. Thus, I will leave it up to you to include the competitor's antibody. To us, either way is fine. We do not edit reviews for such information, only for completeness so that other customers can understand the review.

If you feel this information about the competitor-antibody is important, please include it in the review.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
