Images

  • ab15554 at 1/200 staining human BeWo (placenta choriocarcinoma) cells by ICC/IF. The cells were paraformaldehyde fixed and blocked with BSA prior to incubation with the antibody for 30 minutes. A rhodamine conjugated goat anti-rabbit antibody was used as the secondary. The left hand panel of the image shows DAPI counterstain.

    Secondary
    HRP conjugated donkey anti-rabbit IgG

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 25 kDa
    Observed band size: 25 kDa
    Additional bands at: 10 kDa, 14 kDa, 45 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.


    Exposure time: 5 minutes

  • Anti-Placental lactogen antibody (ab15554) at 1/25 dilution + Human placenta lysate

    Predicted band size: 25 kDa
    Observed band size: 23 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
