The details of the immunogen for this antibody are not available.
We recommend storage time at 4°C should be minimal, since this may affect the signal strength.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab175671 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|IHC-Fr||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|ICC/IF||1/200 - 1/1000.
We recommend the use of a dedicated 405 filter for optimal results not the DAPI filter. The DAPI filter may not excite until the maximum emission peaks of Alexa Fluor® 405 dye (see difference below)
|IHC-P||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|ELISA||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
ICC/IF image of ab6160 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes, blocked with Image-iT® FX Signal Enhancer at room temperature for 30 min and then incubated in 1% BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab6160, 2µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (blue) was ab175671 Alexa Fluor® 405 goat anti-rat IgG (H+L) used at 1µg/ml for 1h. DRAQ5 (ab108410) was used to stain the cell nuclei (red) at a concentration of 1.25µM.
The negative control (inset) is a secondary-only assay to demonstrate low non-specific binding of the secondary antibody.
