One of our customers has ordered ab40660 and receives two bands close in size on the blot.
Does the antibody recognize Lyn a and Lyn b? that could explain it..
Is the epitope recognized by the antibody common to Lyna and Lyn b?
Asked on Feb 24 2014
The difference between lyn a and lyn b is that lyn b does not contain amino acids 23-43 of lyn a. Since this antibody recognises a region around tyrosine 396, ab40660 can detect both lyn a and lyn b therefore it is very probable that this doublet band seen at around 57 kDa corresponds to a band at 56 kDa for lyn b and 59 kDa for lyn a.
