  • ab39626 staining RELM alpha/Retnla in Mouse cecum tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in a citric acid. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (4 ng/ml) overnight at 4°C. A Cy3-conjugated Donkey anti-rabbit polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody.

  • ab39626 at 4 ng/ml staining murine cecum tissue (with positive cells infiltrating the Lamina Propia of a Trichuris muris infected mouse) by IHC-P. The primary antibody was incubated overnight at 4˚C and the secondary antibody was a cyanine-3 conjugated Donkey anti-Rabbit IgG.  Heat induced antigen retrieval with a 100mM Citric Acid was used.
  • ab39626 staining RELM alpha/Retnla in murine liver tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Frozen sections).Tissue was fixed in paraformaldehyde and then blocked using 5% BSA for 30 minutes. Samples were then incubated with ab39626 at a 1/20 dilution for 1 hour. The secondary used was a biotinylated goat anti-rabbit IgG used at a 1/200 dilution.

We have not suggested a positive control for ab39626. However, RELM alpha is predominantly found in adipose tissue therefore I could suggest Adipose (Mouse) Whole Cell Lysate - normal tissue (ab29417) as a positive control.

Thank you for contacting us and your interest in our products.

As discussed over the phone ab8918isamouse monoclonaland canbe used with an anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody.

ab39626 and ab9969 are bothrabbit polyclonals andanti-rabbitIgG can be used in their detection.

If youdo find any non-specificitywith the anti-mouse secondary with your mouse sample (most likely a band at˜25 kDaand/or˜55 kDa)I would suggest looking at the followingprotocols:



Thesearefor IHC but should betransferable toWestern blotting. Alternatively I would suggest altering theprimary antibody to a non-mouseprimary.

I hope this information has beenof help. If you have any problems or require any further information please do not hesitate to ask.
