  • ICC/IF image of ab85319 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab85319, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) 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.

  • IHC image of ab85319 staining in Human breast cancer 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 ab85319, 5µg/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.
  • Overlay histogram showing HeLa cells stained with ab85319 (red line). The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab85319, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG2b [PLPV219] (ab91366, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed.

  • Lactate Dehydrogenase B/LDH-B was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg HeLa whole cell extract, 5µg of Mouse monoclonal to Lactate Dehydrogenase B and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).
    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, HeLa whole cell extract lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.
    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70oC; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab85319.
    Secondary: Goat polyclonal to mouse IgG light chain specific (HRP) at 1/5000 dilution.
    Band: 37kDa: lactate dehydrogenase B

Thank you for contacting us.

We are sorry. We have not measured a concentration of this particular antibody.

It is assumed that the concentration of the total protein for LF-MA0336 is 0.5˜2 mg per 1ml considering the band size on QC test.

But, it’s not only IgG concentration. Monoclonal antibodies are produced by ammonium sulfate precipitation from ascites.

Please refer to the data sheet for dilution fold.

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

The antibody ab85319, anti-LDHb, reacts with western blots of recombinant LDHb but not blots containing recombinant LDHa. Please let us know if you have any questions.

As my colleague mentioned in a previous message, ab4710 is not an antibody, and I am guessing you meant ab47010. To our knowledge, there has been no testing against purified LDHb, but based on the immunogen sequence, it should not be capable of detecting LDHb.

Thanks for your enquiry.

I have requested any further information from the lab regarding testing of ab85319 for reactivity with LDHa.

Also, please note that ab4710 is not an antibody product but instead is a tissue slide. I believe you intended to enquire about an LDHa antibody so please double check this catalog number.

I hope this is helpful. Please contact me again if you have any further questions.

Thank you for your reply and for sending the image again with your protocol information. There does seem to be a lot of background on the blot, but this can be reduced by further diluting the antibody (we recommend 1:5000-1:10000). Once the background is reduced, the specific band should be more clear. If the problem persists however, I would be happy to send a different LDHB antibody for you to try. I hope this information will be useful, but please let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to help. Please keep me updated about any further results with this antibody, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for contacting us with your question. I could not find the image attached to your email- could you please resend it? I also have a few questions so that I can better help you: 1) Do you have your original order number or PO number? 2) How much protein do you load onto the blot? 3) What kind of rat samples have you tried? 4) What blocking solution (milk or BSA) was used? 5) What dilution of antibody was used? I look forward to hearing from you and resolving this promptly. Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything else that we can do for you.
