  • Function

    Mediates interactions of advanced glycosylation end products (AGE). These are nonenzymatically glycosylated proteins which accumulate in vascular tissue in aging and at an accelerated rate in diabetes. Acts as a mediator of both acute and chronic vascular inflammation in conditions such as atherosclerosis and in particular as a complication of diabetes. AGE/RAGE signaling plays an important role in regulating the production/expression of TNF-alpha, oxidative stress, and endothelial dysfunction in type 2 diabetes. Interaction with S100A12 on endothelium, mononuclear phagocytes, and lymphocytes triggers cellular activation, with generation of key proinflammatory mediators. Interaction with S100B after myocardial infarction may play a role in myocyte apoptosis by activating ERK1/2 and p53/TP53 signaling (By similarity). Receptor for amyloid beta peptide. Contributes to the translocation of amyloid-beta peptide (ABPP) across the cell membrane from the extracellular to the intracellular space in cortical neurons. ABPP-initiated RAGE signaling, especially stimulation of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPK), has the capacity to drive a transport system delivering ABPP as a complex with RAGE to the intraneuronal space.

  • Anti-RAGE antibody (ab54741) at 1 µg/ml + Human kidney tissue lysate

    Developed using the ECL technique.

    This image was generated using the ascites version of the product.

  • ab54741 (1 µg/ml) staining RAGE in human lung using an automated system (DAKO Autostainer Plus). Using this protocol there is membrane staining throughout the alveloli.
    Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3 in 1 AR buffer citrate pH 6.0 in a DAKO PT link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 minutes. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 minutes and detected with Dako envision flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that, for manual staining, optimization of primary antibody concentration and incubation time is recommended. Signal amplification may be required.

We would typically suggest using 106 cells in 100 µl diluted antibody. However, the information regarding how ab54741 has come from an Abreview which one of our customers submitted. Unfortunately, they did not provide any details of exactly how the dilution was performed and with how many cells. This will need to be optimised with the particular samples you are using with this antibody for the optimum results. The review can be accessed from the following link:

With the two antibodies you have been looking at I would suggest the following antibodies should serve as suitable isotype controls:

Rabbit polyclonal to RAGE (ab37647), rabbit IgG, isotype control: Rabbit IgG- ChIP Grade (ab37415)

Mouse monoclonal to RAGE (ab54741), mouse IgG2a, isotype control: Mouse Control IgG2a [MOPC-173] - Chip Grade (ab18413)

Thank you for your enquiry regarding ab54741.

As the datasheet indicates, this antibody has been tested in WB, Flow Cyt, IHC-P. It has not been characterized specifically in IHC-Fr but it is very likely that ab54741 works on frozen sections. Normally we would suggest 1 or 2 hrs incubation with the primary antibody at RT or overnight at 4oC.

Since IHC-Fr is untested application, I could consider offering a discount code for testing. I would advise you to visit the following site where the Terms and Conditions of our testing initiative can be found at: https://www.abcam.com/abtrial

If you need any further assistance in the future, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for participating in our recent customer satisfaction survey.

I was in touch with our production lab for ab54741 and they said that the concentration of the antibody is different from batch to batch. Please note that even if you receive a batch that is 0.5 mg/ml instead of 1 mg/ml that we are still sending 100 ug in the vial. The actual mass or amount of the antibody received remains unchanged. You should still see similar labeling, you will just have to account for theconcentration difference when diluting the antibody. If you would prefer to receive a batch at 1 mg/ml in the future, please call our Customer Services department who can check the concentrations of the lots we have in stock and assign the most concentrated one to your order.

If you feel as though the new lot wasn't working at all, even when considering the difference in concentration, then we would be happy to investigate this further. We guarantee that our products will work in the tested species and applications listed on the datasheet and will refund or replace faulty products within 6 months of purchase in accordance with ourAbpromise.


Please call us (888) 77-ABCAM (22226)or reply to this email and we would be happy to discuss the protocol tested and the results you received with the less concentrated lot. We look forward to helping you and again thank you for your feedback!

Thank you for contacting us. It was nice talking to you.

I have discussed the protocol with lab and they have confirmed that they have used microwave antigen retrieval method for 5 minutes with citrate buffer pH 6.0. They have also recommended to use signal enhancer along with normal IHC detection reagents.

For optimization I can recommend trying microwave for 5 minutes and 10 minutes (700 watt, full power).

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