  • Background
    NIH 3T3 cells are established from a NIH Swiss mouse embryo. These cells are highly contact inhibited and are sensitive to sarcoma virus focus formation and leukaemia virus propagation. Cells have now lost their contact inhibition. This cell line was established from NIH Swiss mouse embryo cultures in the same manner as the original random bred 3T3 and the inbred BALB/c 3T3. The established NIH/3T3 line was subjected to more than 5 serial cycles of subcloning in order to develop a subclone with morphologic characteristics best suited for transformation assays. It is therefore used for DNA transfection studies

Thank you very much for contacting us with your enquiry.

I'm sorry to hear that there were no bands in Western blot using this antibody. I would expect any of the MEF cell lines to work as a positive control, but I suggest using a whole cell ...

Thank you very much for your reply and for the additional information.

Have you tried any other exposure times? Since the specific band seems to be the strongest (with 1:100 of antibody and 15-30 ug of protein), you can probably reduce the ex...

Thank you for sending the image of your blots.

When you use the PVDF membrane, are you pre-wetting it with methanol? Because PVDF is hydrophobic, it may not properly bind the blocking agent without the pre-wetting step. This could potentially...

Thank you for your phone call. As we discussed, it is possible that your 6 x 15 minute washes are washing the blocking agent off your membrane. It may help to reduce the wash time to 3 x 5 min, shorten the primary antibody incubation to 1 hour at RT, a...
