Question (61097) | Anti-Lactate Dehydrogenase B/LDH-B antibody [60H11] (ab85319)

Question

I was wondering if you could let me know the specificity of 2 antibodies. I am looking at antibodies against LDHa and LDHb. Specifically products ab4710 and ab85319. I would like to know the cross-reactivity between the two isoforms, meaning does the LDHa antibody detect LDHb? And vice-versa.

Answer

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.
