  • Overlay histogram showing Jurkat cells stained with ab8090 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab8090, 0.01μg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody Goat anti-mouse IgG H&L (DyLight® 488) (ab96871) was used at 1/2000 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG2a [ICIGG2A] (ab91361, 0.01μg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 20mW Argon ion laser (488nm) and 525/30 bandpass filter.

Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections)
ab4648 staining GFAP in rat brain tissue sections by IHC-P (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.1% Tween 20 in PBS and blocked with 10% Serum for 40 minutes at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/1500 in TBS) for 24 hours at 4°C. ab96871 was used as the secondary antibody at a dilution of 1/200. ( Green = GFAP immunostained astrocytes, Blue = DAPI stained nuclei.)
