Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 38 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 38 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.



  • Anti-MFF antibody (ab81127) at 1 µg/ml (in 5% skim milk / PBS buffer) + human fetal muscle lysate at 10 µg

    HRP conjugated anti-Rabbit IgG at 1/50000 dilution

    Predicted band size: 38 kDa
    Observed band size: 38 kDa

    Gel concentration 12%
  • All lanes : Anti-MFF antibody (ab81127) at 1 µg/ml

    Lane 1 : Marker
    Lane 2 : Zebrafish brain homogenate at 20 µg
    Lane 3 : Zebrafish heart homogenate at 20 µg
    Lane 4 : Zebrafish liver homogenate at 20 µg

    All lanes : Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG – H&L – Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/6000 dilution

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 38 kDa
    Observed band size: 37 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?

    Exposure time: 3 minutes
  • ab81127 stained A549 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 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 ab81127 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) 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.

The immunogens differ, though both are closer to the C terminus than the N terminus. The immunogen for ab81127 is derived from within (but is not identical to) the range given on the datasheet, amino acids 287-336 of human MFF. The immunogen for ab129075 is a peptide derived from the range of amino acids 270 -300 of human MFF (RYGISNIDTTIEGTSDDLTVVDAASLRRQI).

Thank you for contacting us.

Regarding antibodies ab79397 and ab32577, they both have been tested in IHC with paraffin embedded sections in the species stated on the datasheet. We don’t have preliminary data using them with frozen sections, but they are very likely to react in such conditions.

Ab48139 has recently been validated to use in IHC-P in Canine, Feline, Mouse, Rat and Human.

As for ab81127, ab83015 and ab98975, unfortunately, we have not characterised them by IHC, it doesn’t mean they won’t work in this application, but we don’t have data to support it.

At Abcam we have an antibody evaluation system, called Abreview, by which customers interested in testing an antibody in new species or applications (not yet tested) can benefit from a free primary antibody in their next purchase if they share the results with us, publishing them in our website.

To participate in this system, customers should first let us know the antibody they want to test in the new species/ applications. We then issue the discount code valid for one free primary antibody. This code must be issued before purchasing the antibody. The customer then purchases the antibody normally, and tests it in the new species / applications.

Once we receive the results in our Website as an Abreview, the discount code becomes active, and it can be redeemed for any primary antibody ordered within the next 4 months.

As mentioned, the discount code might be issued before the purchase of the antibody, but, as an exceptional case, I can still send a discount code if you would like to test any of these antibodies (ab81127, ab83015 and ab98975) with IHC and share your results with us.

To find out more about our Abreview system, please visit: https://www.abcam.com/abreviews.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this offer and I would be happy to help you further.

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