Inquiry: DETAILS Antibody code:Ab37983
Batch number: GR44142-1 Antibody storage conditions (temperature/reconstitution etc) Aliquots stored at -20C Description of the problem (high background, wrong band size, more bands, no band etc.) Very high background and very low signal for extracts (positive control - ab109955 – nice signal but still high background) Sample (Species/Cell extract/Nuclear extract/Purified protein/Recombinant protein etc.) Whole cell extract from purified PBMCs Sample preparation (Buffer/Protease inhibitors/Heating sample etc.) The frozen lymphocytes were thawed at 30°C, after which their protein content was extracted with 220mM KCl for 30 minutes on ice. Cell debris were removed by centrifugation at 13,200 rpm for 15 minutes at 4°C. Glycerol was added to the protein extract to a final concentration of 10%, and the extract was frozen in liquid nitrogen. Amount of protein loaded Up to 40ug Electrophoresis/Gel conditions (Reducing or Non-reducing gel, % of the gel etc.) Reducing, 12 and 15 % gel Transfer and blocking conditions (Buffer/time period, Blocking agent etc.) Transfer – Tris / Glycine with MeOH Blocking – TBS-T with 5% milk (I tried also BSA – results were worse) Primary Antibody (Manufacturer/Species/Diluent/Dilution/Incubation time, Wash step) Ab37983 – Goat polyclonal 1:400 / 1:1000 ON – 4C / 1hr – RT Wash: 3x 10min / 5x 5min Secondary Antibody (Manufacturer/Species/Diluent/Dilution/Incubation time, Wash step) Donkey anti goat of two different manufactures (Sigma / Jackson) diluted up to 1:100,000 1hr at RT Wash: 3x 10min / 5x 5min Detection method (ECL, ECLPlus etc.) ECL (also ECL plus that gave even higher background) Positive and negative controls used (please specify) Commercial protein – ab109955
OPTIMIZATION ATTEMPTS (PROBLEM SOLVING) How many times have you tried the Western? I tried a lot of times with extracts from different extractions (from different blood donors), different Ab dilutions, washes, blocking, 2 different second antibodies with a lot of dilution. The background is very very high so I can’t see a signal in extracts only in commercial protein. Have you run a "No Primary" control? No Do you obtain the same results every time? e.g. are the background bands always in the same place? Problem all the time – of course gets worse with lower 2nd Ab dilution etc…. – never got better! What steps have you altered? Extracts source and preparation, Ab dilutions (1st and 2nd), washes, blocking Additional Notes In data shit a nice signal appears – can you give me more details or if you have any suggestions, I’d appreciate it.
