Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab76969 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
FunctionActs together with cubilin to mediate HDL endocytosis (By similarity). May participate in regulation of parathyroid-hormone and para-thyroid-hormone-related protein release.
Tissue specificityAbsorptive epithelia, including renal proximal tubules.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in LRP2 are the cause of Donnai-Barrow syndrome (DBS) [MIM:222448]; also known as faciooculoacousticorenal syndrome (FOAR syndrome). DBS is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by major malformations including agenesis of the corpus callosum, congenital diaphragmatic hernia, facial dysmorphology, ocular anomalies, sensorineural hearing loss and developmental delay. The FOAR syndrome was first described as comprising facial anomalies, ocular anomalies, sensorineural hearing loss, and proteinuria. DBS and FOAR were first described as distinct disorders but the classic distinguishing features between the 2 disorders were presence of proteinuria and absence of diaphragmatic hernia and corpus callosum anomalies in FOAR. Early reports noted that the 2 disorders shared many phenotypic features and may be identical. Although there is variability in the expression of some features (e.g. agenesis of the corpus callosum and proteinuria), DBS and FOAR are now considered to represent the same entity.

IHC image of ab76969 staining in human kidney carcinoma 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 ab76969, 1µg/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.
ab76969 staining Lrp2 / Megalin in monkey kidney tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections).
Tissue was fixed in formaldehyde and a heat mediated antigen retrieval step was performed using citrate pH 6.0. Samples were then incubated with ab76969 at 1µg/ml for 1 hour with BSA in TBS. The secondary used was an undiluted HRP conjugated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal.
ab76969 staining Lrp2 / Megalin in mouse kidney tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (PFA perfusion fixed frozen sections). Tissue samples were fixed by perfusion with paraformaldehyde, blocked for 60 minutes at 25°C and antigen retrieval was by heat mediation. The sample was incubated with primary antibody (1/1000) at 25°C for 1 hour. An Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated donkey rabbit polyclonal (1/1200) was used as the secondary antibody.
