Thank you for your phone call and your interest in our products.
As discussed over the phone, the Anti-Lactate Dehydrogenase Isoenzyme V antibody (ab9002) has been used by several research groups in performing immunohistochemical staining. Having reviewed the data we have for this antibody I would suggest it should work well in the tissue you have. The target has been shown to be expressed especially in cancerous tissue, but if you are looking for a different positive control you could potentially use human muscle tissue as we have done using the anti-Lactate Dehydrogenase Isoenzyme V antibody ab101562.
As you have said, the antigen retrieval used in the reference by Koukourakis et al. (2003) does not explicitly say which antigen retrieval buffer they found to work the best. However, in a separate paper staining of Beclin 1 was performed using citrate buffer (pH 7.2) using the microwave (3x5 min) (Koukourakis et al. (2010)). I would therefore not be surprised if this was used with the anti-LDH5 as well. However, in order to achieve the best staining with your tissue I would suggest trying citrate buffer (pH 6) as well as Tris/EDTA (pH 9) to see which would provide the best results. Using the pressure cooker should not be a problem. again, I would suggest optimising the time used (initially using 3, 5 and 10 minutes).
Additionally, I have had a look at the Novolink detection substrate and I don’t think it is likely to be suitable as it seems it is designed for mouse or rabbit primary antibodies. Ab9002 is a sheep polyclonal and would therefore need a secondary antibody directed against sheep IgG to work. If you would prefer to use a rabbit antibody you could look at ab101562 which should also work in the experiment you are planning.
I hope this information has been of help. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to let me know.

Thank you for contacting Abcam. I’ve had a look into this and done a bit of a web search and as far as I can see LDH5, LDHM and LDHA are all different names for the same protein, as stated in this paper, http://www.pnas.org/content/107/5/2037.long. Therefore, ab47010 can be used to detect LDH5.  I hope this information is helpful.  Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions.

From our testing we would expect our anti LDH-V to show a single band of approximately 36 kDa by Western blot - this band corresponds to the A subunit (sometimes called the muscle subunit) which LDH-V is entirely composed of.
