Though we have found ab13420 does not react with mouse sample in our lab, there is a report from a reviewer that got positive result with mouse sample in IHC-Fr. However, this information needs to be confirmed further.
Although this antibody does work in IHC-P, we have found that ab13418 typically gives a more robust signal. Therefore, if you plan on using this antibody in IHC-P, we recommend ab13418 as an alternative option.

FunctionConstitutes 1-2% of the total bone protein. It binds strongly to apatite and calcium.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the osteocalcin/matrix Gla protein family.
Contains 1 Gla (gamma-carboxy-glutamate) domain.
modificationsGamma-carboxyglutamate residues are formed by vitamin K dependent carboxylation. These residues are essential for the binding of calcium.
