Many thanks. 10 differences in a 35 amino acid stretch of sequence is a lot. Are you guys sure about cross-reactivity to the rat protein ?

My apologies: the laboratory that supplies this to us confirmed that they have not tested this for reactivity to rat protein, for have we or, to our knowledge, any of our customers. It is not clear why our datasheet lists rat in the "Reacts With" field but I am assuming there was a miscommunication.
I am going to remove rat reactivity from the datasheet, so it will not be covered by our guarantee. If you are still interested in trying it, we do offer a free antibody in return for a review of an antibody tested in previously untested species or application.
In brief, you would buy ab44392 at full price, test it against your rat samples in one of the listed tested applications (ELISA, IHC-P, WB), and send us a review via our "Abreview" program. (Details can be found at www.abcam.com/abreviews. It is essentially a paragraph description of your protocol and results).
At that point, a code that is issued to you becomes active and can be used (within four months of the purchase of ab44392) to obtain a free antibody.
Please let me know if you are interested.
