Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab9679 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml.
ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml.
Neutralising Use at an assay dependent dilution. To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of hRANTES (100.00 ng/ml), a concentration of 5.0 - 7.0 µg/ml of this antibody is required.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 2 µg/ml.

Target

  • Function
    Chemoattractant for blood monocytes, memory T-helper cells and eosinophils. Causes the release of histamine from basophils and activates eosinophils. Binds to CCR1, CCR3, CCR4 and CCR5. One of the major HIV-suppressive factors produced by CD8+ T-cells. Recombinant RANTES protein induces a dose-dependent inhibition of different strains of HIV-1, HIV-2, and simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV). The processed form RANTES(3-68) acts as a natural chemotaxis inhibitor and is a more potent inhibitor of HIV-1-infection. The second processed form RANTES(4-68) exhibits reduced chemotactic and HIV-suppressive activity compared with RANTES(1-68) and RANTES(3-68) and is generated by an unidentified enzyme associated with monocytes and neutrophils.
  • Tissue specificity
    T-cell and macrophage specific.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the intercrine beta (chemokine CC) family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    N-terminal processed form RANTES(3-68) is produced by proteolytic cleavage, probably by DPP4, after secretion from peripheral blood leukocytes and cultured sarcoma cells.
    The identity of the O-linked saccharides at Ser-27 and Ser-28 are not reported in PubMed:1380064. They are assigned by similarity.

  • ab9679 staining RANTES in Human skeletal muscle (gastrocnemius) tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with methacarn and blocked with 10% serum for 20 minutes at 25°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in citrate buffer (pH 6) and tris buffer (pH 8). Samples were incubated with primary antibody (2μg/ml) for 1 hour at 25°C. An undiluted HRP-conjugated Mouse anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.

  • ab9679 staining RANTES in human breast invasive ductal carcinoma tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue underwent heat mediated antigen retrieval in sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0). The primary antibody was used at 2.0 ug/ml and incubated with sample at 4°C overnight. A HRP-labeled polymer detection system was used with an AEC chromogen.

  • Formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded human breast cancer tissue stained for RANTES using ab9679 at 1/150 dilution in immunohistochemical analysis. Goat anti-Rabbit HRP was used as the secondary antibody. Heat mediated antigen retrieval using EDTA at pH 9 was used before commencing with the IHC protocol.

Answer

The best choice from what we have is the goat polyclonal ab10590. Other antibodies we have that are raised against RANTES may also work for immunocytochemistry but they have not been tested in this application.

The exception is the rabbit monoclonal ab108933 but it has not been characterized as well as ab10590, and I am concerned that, since it is raised against the C-terminus, it might not be able to recognize platelet RANTES, depending on how RANTES is processed by platelets. The following note from the UniProt entry for the protein mentions that leukocytes secrete an N-terminal fragment.

"N-terminal processed form RANTES(3-68) is produced by proteolytic cleavage, probably by DPP4, after secretion from peripheral blood leukocytes and cultured sarcoma cells."

Answer

Thank you for contacting us.
I have been in contact with the lab, I can confirm that ab9679 has already been reconstituted in 200ul sterile water. Since this antibody was lyophilised in PBS, this means that upon the addition of the water, the antibody has been re-dissolved in PBS. There is an error on the datasheet concerning the reconstitution in sterile water and we apologize for this and thank you for bringing this to our attention as it will allow us to update our datasheet.
I hope this information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

Answer

Thank you for your enquiry.

For ab9554, Rabbit Anti Human NAP-2, this has been tested in Neutralisation as follows:
Neutralization: To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of Human NAP-2 (100.0 ng/ml), a concentration of 5.0 - 10.0 ug/ml of this antibody was required. This may need some individual optimization.

The recombinant protein used in this assay is NAP-2 protein ab9556.
https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=9556 (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=9556).

For ab9679, Rabbit Anti Human RANTES, this has been tested in Neutralisation as follows:
Neutralization: To yield one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of Human RANTES (100 ng/ml), a concentration of 0.4 – 0.6 μg/ml of this antibodywas required. This may need some individual optimization.

The recombinant protein used in this assay, is Rantes protein ab9680.
