Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF 1/20.
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 22025551

  • ICC/IF image of ab15459 stained HeLa cells (ab150035ab15459), 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was a goat anti-rabbit Alexa Fluor® 488 (IgG; H+L) ab150077) 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.

  • Human small intestine (ab29276) stained with anti-Integrin beta 5 antibody, ab15459 by Immunohistochemistry (FFPE-sections).

  • ab15459 staining Integrin beta 5 in Rat gastric epithelial cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were fixed with paraformaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.1% Triton and blocked with 0.25% serum free protein for 20 minutes at 28°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/50 in antibody diluent) for 2 hours at 28°C. An FITC-conjugated Goat anti-IgG polyclonal (1/80) was used as the secondary antibody. Nuclei were counterstained with propidium iodide (ab14083).

Unfortunately, this antibody is not against the extracellular domain and so will not be suitable for your application.

We have not tested any of our antibodies in vivo and therefore cannot guarantee that any of these will work on live unpermeabilised cells.

In addition, I have read through the literature and have been unable to identify other tools which are used for labelling integrin b5 in vivo.

I would like to recommend checking the Biocompare website which has an excellent antibody search facility that includes many suppliers. The links are:

Vielen Dank für Ihre Anfrage.

Ich habe Ihnen unser Subcellular Fractionation Protokoll an diese Email gehängt, mit dem Sie eine Isolierung der Zellmembran durchführen können.

Desweiteren habe ich Ihnen unseren "WB für Beginner" Protokoll mit angehängt, das neben den Grundprinzipien auch noch jede Menge Tipps und Tricks bereit hält. Desweiteren werden Sie noch einen Vergleich der zwei Blockproteinen finden (BSA vs Milch).BSA hat sich bei uns besonders im Gebrauch mit monoklonalen Antikörpern bewährt.

Falls das immer noch nicht hilft, rufen Sie uns doch einfach mal an, damit wir Ihr Protokoll durchsprechen können.

Ich hoffe, dies hilft Ihnen weiter. Bitte zögern Sie nicht, sich wieder bei uns zu melden, falls Sie weitere Fragen haben.

Thank you for your inquiry.

Yes, the blocking buffer that was used to generate that image was a combination of 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilize the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The permeabilization and blocking steps were done at the same time this way. You can perform this step at room temperature. This is the protocol we've used in house.

We have heard that a customer tried separating out the steps and it worked:

Yes - 0.1 % Triton X-100

Blocking step:
BSA as blocking agent for 30 mins · Concentration: 2 % · Temperature: 25°C


I hope this information helps. Please contact us with any other questions.

Thank you for contacting us. The blocking step requires you to choose either 1%BSA or 10% normal serum for blocking. Incubation should be either for one hour at room temperature or overnight at 4 degrees.

I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Thank you for contacting us. The antibody ab15459 has not yet been tested in flow cytometry. If you like to try that, we have a testing discount program you can take advantage of. For UNTESTED species and/or applications, we have established a testing discount program. Here is a brief description of how it works: The testing discount program is for customers who like to use an antibody/protein on an untested species/application. You would purchase the antibody at full price, test it and submit an Abreview with your data (positive or negative). On your next order you will receive a discount for ONE antibody at the full price (100%) of the antibody you have tested. The terms and conditions applicable to this offer can be found here: www.abcam.com/collaborationdiscount. I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
