Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab220815 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 Use at an assay dependent concentration. Detects a band of approximately 10, 15 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 17 kDa).

Abcam recommends blocking in 3% milk for cleanest results in WB. Blocking with BSA gives slightly higher background.

IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9.0 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Flow Cyt Use at an assay dependent concentration.

Target

  • Function

    Actin-binding protein that enhances membrane ruffling and RAC activation. Enhances the actin-bundling activity of LCP1. Binds calcium. Plays a role in RAC signaling and in phagocytosis. May play a role in macrophage activation and function. Promotes the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and of T-lymphocytes. Enhances lymphocyte migration. Plays a role in vascular inflammation.
  • Tissue specificity

    Detected in T-lymphocytes and peripheral blood mononuclear cells.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 2 EF-hand domains.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Phosphorylated on serine residues.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cell projection > ruffle membrane. Associated with the actin cytoskeleton at membrane ruffles and at sites of phagocytosis.

Images

  • IHC image of Iba1 staining in rat normal brain formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab178846, 1/2000 dilution, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab178846).

  • IHC image of Iba1 staining in mouse normal brain formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol B. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab178846, 1/2000 dilution, for 15 mins at room temperature. A goat anti-rabbit biotinylated secondary antibody was used to detect the primary, and visualized using an HRP conjugated ABC system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

     

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

The section was then incubated with ab178846, 1/2000 dilution, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen.

  • Flow cytometry analysis of 2% paraformaldehyde fixed U937 (human histiocytic lymphoma cell line) cells labeling Iba1 with ab178846 at 1/160 dilution (red line). Secondary antibody used is a goat anti rabbit IgG (FITC) at 1/150 dilution. The isotype control is rabbit monoclonal IgG (black line). The unlabeled control is cells without incubation with primary and secondary antibodies (blue line).

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab178846).

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded Human cerebral cortex tissue labeling Iba1 with ab178846 at a 1/2000 dilution showing cytoplasm and nuclear staining on Glial cells. Counter stained with hematoxylin. Prediluted HRP Polymer for Rabbit/Mouse IgG was used as the secondary aantibody. Negative control also shown.
