Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab56196 in the following tested applications.

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

  • Form

  • Additional notes

    - First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions.
    - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer.
    - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent.
    - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised.
    - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

Thank you for contacting Abcam regarding ab56196.

This EGR1 peptide does not contain any of the zinc finger domains. Notation on the datasheet refers to the full length protein, not this specific peptide.

I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions.

Thank you for your kind reminder. The zinc fingers present, as stated on the datasheet refer to their presence in the full length ERG1 protein rather than the 23AA peptide.  As there’s no histidine, cysteine amino acids in the sequence, with the exception of the terminal cysteine. If you need any further assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.
