Anti-S100A4 antibody (ab40722) at 1 µg/ml + S100A4 - Recombinant Protein at 0.1 µg
Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution
Performed under reducing conditions.
Predicted band size: 12 kDa
Observed band size: 37 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
The S100A4 tagged recombinant protein has a molecular weight of 36.8 kDa.
ab40722 staining S100A4 in human heart tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue underwent fixation in formaldehyde, heat mediated antigen retrieval in Citrate buffer pH 6.0 and blocking (5 minutes/peroxidase block then 10 minutes/protein block) for 15 minutes at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted, 1/250 and incubated with sample for 45 minutes at 20°C. A HRP conjugated goat polyclonal to rabbit IgG was used undiluted as secondary.
ICC/IF image of ab40722 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab40722, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
