Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab53940 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
IHC-P 1/1000.
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB 1/2000. Detects a band of approximately 30 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 26 kDa).

5 μL per 10 mL of 5% milk powder in TTBS (1:2000 dilution) is recommended for ECL method with overnight incubation at room temperature.



  • Function
    Conjugation of reduced glutathione to a wide number of exogenous and endogenous hydrophobic electrophiles.
  • Tissue specificity
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the GST superfamily. Alpha family.
    Contains 1 GST C-terminal domain.
    Contains 1 GST N-terminal domain.
  • Domain
    The C-terminal domain may form a component of the hydrophobic substrate-binding site, but in contrast appears not to be directly involved in GSH binding and is not absolutely essential for catalytic activity.

  • A. Negative control (no antibody).

    B. Rat liver section stained with ab53940 at 1/1000 dilution followed by anti-goat IgG-HRP with DAB HRP substrate.

  • ICC/IF image of ab53940 stained HepG2 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal donkey 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 (ab53940, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 donkey anti-goat IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
