Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab36653 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
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 140 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 46 kDa).


  • Function
    Cell surface proteoglycan that may bear heparan sulfate (By similarity). May have a role in the organization of cell shape by affecting the actin cytoskeleton, possibly by transferring signals from the cell surface in a sugar-dependent mechanism.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in the nervous system, the adrenal gland, and the spleen.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the syndecan proteoglycan family.
  • Post-translational
    O-glycosylated within the Thr/Ser-rich region which could interact with lectin domains on other molecules.

  • Anti-Syndecan 3 antibody (ab36653) at 1 µg/ml + Brain (Mouse) Tissue Lysate at 10 µg

    Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size: 46 kDa
    Observed band size: 140 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at: 90 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 20 minutes
  • IHC image of ab36653 staining in mouse brain formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab36653, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
