IHC-P 1/100 - 1/500.


  • Relevance
    Phospholipase A2 (EC catalyzes the release of fatty acids from glycero-3-phosphocholines. The best known varieties are the digestive enzymes secreted as zymogens by the pancreas of mammals. Sequences of pancreatic PLA2 enzymes from a variety of mammals have been reported. One striking feature of these enzymes is their close homology to venom phospholipases of snakes. Other forms of PLA2 have been isolated from brain, liver, lung, spleen, intestine, macrophages, leukocytes, erythrocytes, inflammatory exudates, chondrocytes, and platelets (Seilhamer et al., 1986 [PubMed 3028739]).

  • Anti-PLA2G12B antibody (ab85069) at 1/250 dilution + mouse liver lysates

    Predicted band size: 22 kDa
    Observed band size: 22 kDa

  • ICC/IF image of ab85069 stained MCF7 cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab85069, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

Customer reviews and Q&As

Thank you for contacting us. The liver lysate was not prepared in any special way. It was a standard lysis of fresh mouse liver in RIPA buffer with protease inhibitors. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.
