  • ICC/IF image of ab73979 stained HeLa 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 (ab73979, 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.

Thank you for contacting us.
The immunogen show 80% sequence homology with mouse so it is more likely that the antibody would cross react.

Thank you for your reply.

I am sorry to hearthat the customerhas problemswith this antibody. We take product complaints very seriously, and investigate every product that we feel may not be performing correctly. We will replace the antibody if the antibody is not working as we guarantee.

Please provide the protocol information in which the antibody was not performing well. I am attaching our questionnaire so that we can gather this further information regarding the samples tested and the protocol used. Once we receive the completed questionnaire, we will look at the protocol and see if there are any suggestions we can make that may improve the results. This information will also allow us to investigate this case internally and initiate additional testing where necessary. If the product was purchased in the last six months and is being used according to our Abpromise, we would be happy to replace or refund the antibody.

I look forward to receiving your reply.

Thank you for your patience.

I am sorry to let you know that the laboratory has no image to provide, as the antibody has been tested in another lab on Western blot.It has only been tested on Glypican-1 transfected 293T cells lysates as far as I know.

Please let me know if the customer has any questions or concerns. I would be happy to look into it.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Thank you for your reply.

I have requested an image from the laboratorzy, however I have not yet received it. I will forward this to you, as soon as we have it. I can however reassure the customer, that we do guarantee this antibody to give good results in Western blot.

In regards to the cells which can be used as positive control, I can recommend HeLa cells for example. As you see also in the IF picture on the datasheet, HeLa cells do contain a good amount of Glypican 1.

I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us again should you need meanwhile further information.
