Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab40870 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/5000. Detects a band of approximately 51 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 51 kDa).
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
ICC 1/50 - 1/100.
IP 1/50.



  • Lane 1: Wild-type HAP1 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 2: GSK3 alpha knockout HAP1 whole cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 3: HeLa whole cell lysate (20 µg)
    Lane 4: HepG2 whole cell lysate (20 µg)

    Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab40870 observed at 51 kDa. Red - loading control, ab8245, observed at 37 kDa.

    ab40870 was shown to specifically react with GSK3 alpha in wild-type HAP1 cells. No band was observed when GSK3 alpha knockout samples were examined. Wild-type and GSK3 alpha knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab40870 and ab8245 (Mouse anti-GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at a 1/5000 dilution and 1/10,000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/10,000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.

  • ab4870 at 1/50 dilution, staining GSK3 alpha in Human breast carcinoma tissue by Immunohistochemistry, Paraffin embedded section.

    Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.

  • Anti-GSK3 alpha antibody [EP793Y] (ab40870) at 1/5000 dilution + 10ug HeLa cell lysate.

    Predicted band size: 51 kDa
    Observed band size: 51 kDa
