Customer reviews and Q&As

The carboxybenzyloxy (CBZ) is a blocking group used to protect the primary amine during organic synthesis. We have used this derivative for the immunogen synthesis. There was no acetylated group on the immunogen.

The immunogen used to prepare this mouse monoclonal antibody was the KLH-lysine Nalpha-CBZ If you have any additional questions, please contact us again.

Ab409 used to be sold in lyophilized form and is now sold as a liquid. I apologize for the mistake on the datasheet and it has since been updated. Would you like a replacement vial of ab409? Please let me know and I can have it sent to you next week.

The suppier of ab409 was able to inform us that Ab409 was not tested on p53 and p65.

We would suggest using BSA in TBST solution. Do not hesite to contact us for any further information.

Yes, ab409 -- Mouse monoclonal (11A1) to N-epsilon acetyl lysine is suitable for use in detecting acetylated histones and other acetylated proteins. Suggested dilution for Western blot is 1/500 to 1/5000.

This antibody should recognise all acetylated histones.

Both antibodies have been found to work well in WB. However, neither have been assessd in a supershift experiment, therefore we can't guarantee results.

All the information we have for this antibody is on the datasheet and at present, this is the only antibody agaisnt acetyl-lysine that we currently have in our product range.

Our policy at Abcam is that if an antibody does not work as specified on the datasheet, we offer a replacement or reimbursement. We do not routinely sell samples. We also offer a USD20 Amazon gift voucher to researchers who feedback information about o...
