Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab82804 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 a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 66 kDa.Can be blocked with KIRREL peptide (ab109278). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 10 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.


  • Function
    Plays a significant role in the normal development and function of the glomerular permeability. Signaling protein that needs the presence of TEC kinases to fully trans-activate the transcription factor AP-1.
  • Tissue specificity
    Abundantly expressed in kidney. Specifically expressed in podocytes of kidney glomeruli.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily.
    Contains 5 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylation probably regulates the interaction with NSH2.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell membrane. Predominantly located at podocyte slit diaphragm.

  • Anti-KIRREL antibody (ab82804) at 1 µg/ml (in 5% skim milk / PBS buffer) + HepG2 cell lysate at 10 µg

    HRP conjugated anti-Rabbit IgG at 1/50000 dilution

    Predicted band size: 66 kDa
    Observed band size: 64 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at: 40 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Gel concentration: 12%
  • IHC image of ab82804 staining in Human normal kidney formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM 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 ab82804, 10µg/ml, 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.
