  • NG108-15 cells, a fusion of mouse neuroblastoma and rat glioma cells, were used for a FACS analysis. Cells were incubated for one hour with Ab8874 at a 1:100 dilution, and subsequently with an anti-rabbit IgG conjugated to FITC. A 96% shift was seen relative to control cells treated with secondary antibody only. (note; yellow = control, red = result).

ab8874 was raised against a synthetic peptide containing a GST tag. However, ab8875 is the immunogen affinity purified version of ab8874 and was purified to remove all antibody that recognizes the GST tag, so only antibody recognizing p75 NGF receptor remains.

Alternatively, ab38335 is another anti-p75 NGFR antibody that has been immunogen affinity purified:

Thank you for your enquiry.

I can confirm that ab8874 Anti-p75 NGF Receptor antibody is sold as whole antiserum.

Unpurified antibodies, such as those sold as whole antiserum, ascites or tissue culture supernatant will not have a concentration stated on the datasheet.

Antibody concentration is usually determined by protein assay, and serum will contain a lot of other proteins, which means the antibody quantification would not be accurate.

I can confirm that for whole antiserum, concentration of antibody is known to very between 1 -5mg/ml.

I am sorry we are not able to provide an exact concentration on this occasion, but hope this information will be helpful to you. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you for contacting us. I am sorry to hear that you are experiencing problems with this antibody.

The FACS protocol we have used for this antibody is very simple. Please find attached the document.

You may consider following steps for troubleshooting

- Using higher/ low concentration of primary antibody
- Incubating primary for 1-2 hours 4C
- Use WiDr or NIH3T3 as positive control

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

TThank you for calling Abcam regarding positive controls.

AB10404 has been used in IHC-P on lung sections in the following publication:Liu Yet al.Human metapneumovirus establishes persistent infection in the lungs of mice and is reactivated by glucocorticoid treatment.J Virol83:6837-48 (2009).http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=PubMed&list_uids=19357175&dopt=Abstract.
This product has also been used by customers in human prostate carcinoma tissue to good effect. More information about this can be seen at this link:https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=10404&tab=abreviews&intabreviewid=5255

Thank you for providing that extra information. I now understanf more fully what the customer is trying to achieve and the problems they have been encountering.

As I mentioned in my previous email, the two lots used by the customer are from the same preparation of serum, they have simply been aliquotted at different times. You have clearly seen a marked difference in the activity of the two lots,it may be that the GR1525-8 lotsomehow lost some activity compared to GR1525-6 during theprocessing or delivery. This is uncommon and we have not had anysimilar complaints against this antibody.

I would be happy to replace the GR1525-8 vial with a different vial. The only alternative to GR1525-8we have in stock is GR1525-7. As I said previously, this is from the same stock but is prepared at a different time. If you would prefer, I could send you an alternative antibody to the same target, such as https://www.abcam.com/p75-NGF-Receptor-antibody-NGFR5-ab3125.html.

In order to organise this I will need the order number of the ab8874 (lot number GR1525-8).

I look forward to hearing how you would like to proceed.

Thank you for your call today and for letting us know about the trouble with this new vial of ab8874.

As we discussed, I'm sending a free of charge vial on the order ***, which should arrive tomorrow. Please keep me updated about the results using this new vial.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please let me know if you have any questions or if there is anything else that we can do for you.
