  • General notes

    HRP conjugated anti-rabbit secondary antibody optimized for western blot and immunohistochemistry. Some customers reported seeing brown precipitates in the vials. The brown precipitates are very common with HRP conjugated antibodies; we suggest vortexing the vial and using this antibody as normal. Our customer’s feedback says the antibody worked great. If in case the antibody fails to give results then please contact our Scientific Support team for assistance.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded rat cardiac tissue sections, labelling Conexin 43 with ab117843 at a dilution of 1/500 incubated for 12 hours at 4°C in 1% BSA in TBS. Antigen retrival was via Tris-EDTA pH 9.0 (heat mediated). Blocking was 3% BSA incubated for 1 hour at 37°C. The secondary was ab6721 at 1/500.

  • ab3580 staining glucocorticoid receptor in mouse epididymis tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with bouin's solution and blocked with 1.5% serum for 30 minutes at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citrate buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/1000) for 14 hours at 4°C. A HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG H&L (ab6720) (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.

In the case of ab6721, the storage condition has changed because we removed the glycerol bit from the antibody storage buffer. As a consequence, from now on we recommend to store the antibody at 4 degrees.

We are aware of this issue; the brown precipitates as observed are very common with HRP conjugated secondary antibodies so our lab is devising ways to get rid of these precipitates however results are still awaiting.

I can confirm that for the HRP conjugated antibodies the approach that I recommended is the correct one. Spining the vial down will prevent free HRP to bind to unspecifically to samples and therefore avoid increased background.

If the antibod...
