Go to datasheet (ab77210)

Question

This customer would like to order ab54481 (Anti-PGC1 alpha antibody), and this antibody’s datasheet suggest it’s can’t react with zebrafish, therefore this customer would like to use ab54481 (Anti-PGC1 alpha antibody) conduct WB with zebrafish sample, would you please help this customer to create a discount code? Thanks for your kindly assistance.  

Answer

Thank you for contacting us. The alignment sequence between the Zebrafish PGC1alpha (Swiss Prot Q52MY8) and the immunogen of ab54481 shows only 28.6% homology. This antibody is therefore unlikely to recognise the Zebrafish protein, I would not recommend it to your customer and I cannot issue a testing discount code. I looked at the other anti-PGC1alpha we have in our catalog and none of them seems to be suitable for Zebrafish : ab77210 : 13.6% homology with Zebrafish PGC1alpha ab84139 : 17.6% homology with Zebrafish PGC1alpha ab106814 : 30.8% homology with Zebrafish PGC1alpha I would like to recommend checking the Biocompare website which has an excellent antibody search facility that includes many suppliers.
