We have a customer who is interested in the following antibodies;
ab85492, ab109750, ab65796, ab80969, ab45390, ab71574.
Their question is as follows;
I'm interested in seeing whether your anti-kir2.1 antibodies will cross-react with the zebrafish kir2.1 protein. However, for the 6 anti-kir2.1 antibodies that you stock there are no details regarding the region the antibodies are targeting, and therefore I can't be sure which antibody is the best suited for my needs. I've included the amino acid sequence of the zebrafish kir2.1 in this email in hopes that you would be able to tell me which antibody target shares the highest homology with it and therefore may be able to cross-react with the zebrafish protein.
According to the datasheet, they have not been tested with Zebrafish, so I would assume that you can’t confirm for them, but it is best to check. I will also mention to them of Abcam’s testing discount.
Looking forward to your response.

Thank youand your customer very much for your interest in our antibodies.
I checked all immunogens and homology to zebrafish (sequnec that your customer provided)of the Kir2.1 antibodies we offer at the moment.
Only one antibody shows a sufficiently high homology to expect cross-reactivity: ab71574
Therefore, I can offer a discount off a future purchase if your customerbuys ab71574 now, tests it inzebrafish and submits feedback to us in the form of an Abreview. It doesn’t matter whether the Abreview is positive or negative, we would just really like to receive your customer'sfeedback. The discount would be to the value of ab71574 and can be used to order any product.
If your customer is interested in this offer, please follow these steps:
1. Reply to this e-mail to let me know that your customer ( please include theire-mail address)would like to proceed and test ab71574 in zebrafish. I will then send a discount code. This code must be issued before purchasing ab71574 so please wait for my reply before ordering.
2. Purchase ab71574 either by phone, fax, or online (www.abcam.com).
3. Test it in zebrafish.
4. Let us know the results, positive or negative, using our Abreview system (this will take about 10 minutes and images are great if you have them!). To find out how to submit an Abreview, please visit: https://www.abcam.com/abreviews.
5. After the review is submitted to us, the discount code becomes active. Simply place your customer's new order by phone, fax, or on the web and mention the discount code. The discount can be redeemed for anyproduct ordered and the discount code is valid for 4 months after issue.
We are always pleased to obtain feedback about our products and any information is greatly appreciated! Even if ab71574turns out to be unsuitable for zebrafish, your customerwill still receive the discount ontheir next purchase after your Abreview has been submitted.
Please let me know if you or your customer have any questions about this offer and I would be happy to help you further.
