  • Host species
  • Target species
  • Specificity

    By immunoelectrophoresis and ELISA this antibody reacts specifically with mouse IgG and with light chains common to other mouse immunoglobulins. No antibody was detected against non-immunoglobulin serum proteins. Reduced cross-reactivity to bovine, chicken, horse, human, pig, rabbit and rat IgG was detected. This antibody may cross react with IgG from other species.

  • ICC/IF image of ab7291 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 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 (ab7291, 10µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab150117 Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at 1µg/ml for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

    The negative control (inset) is a secondary-only assay to demonstrate low non-specific binding of the secondary antibody.

Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/200 in PBS) for 1 hour at 22°C. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG H&L (ab150117) (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.

Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence
Following 4% PFA fixation, cells from the ventral mesencephalon were incubated with an anti-GFAP (Non-Abcam) antibody O/N @ RT. ab150117 (1:500) was applied for 2 hours @ RT to visualise astrocytes.

very good

Immunohistochemistry (PFA fixed)
We use this antibody together with the antibody 19905 (EPX) in eosinophilic skin.
As working concentration we used a 1/100 Dilution for 30 minutes at room temperature.

Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections)
Adult rabbit testes were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde. Tissue was embedded in O.C.T. and frozen. 5 micron sections were cut and transferred to slides. Sections were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS, and blocked with 3% BSA in 0.1% Triton X-100 + PBS. Sections were incubated with either (A) no primary antibody or (B ) anti-DDX4 (Abcam ab27591) for 1 h at RT. Sections were then washed 3X with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS and Goat-Anti Rabbit 488 (Abcam ab150117) applied at a 1:500 dilution. Sections were then mounted after washing 3X with 0.1% Triton X-100 in PBS.

Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence
This antibody has been used extensively with a number of different primary antibodies generated in rabbits. It performs extremely well at a 1:200 dilution.
Attached is an immunofluorescent image of paraformaldehyde-fixed HeLa cells that were immunofluorescently labeled with a cell membrane-specific antibody (ab134375). The secondary antibody has been pseudo-colored green in the merged image. DNA was counterstained with DAPI.

Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence
Following fixation in 4% PFA, the cells were assessed for alpha smooth muscle Actin using 1:100 dilution of the primary antibody (ab7817) in 1% serum, 0.1% triton, 0.1% BSA in PBS, followed by detection using goat polyclonal mouse IgG Alexa 488 (ab150117) at 1:500. The results show clear alpha smooth muscle Actin fibres (green). An isotype control IgG was run in parallel and showed no positive staining (not shown here). Nuclei were counterstained using DAPI (blue).
