Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab24511 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
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml. PubMed: 22513363
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
IP Use a concentration of 5 - 10 µg/ml. PubMed: 22048770
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 4 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 24 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 22 kDa).Can be blocked with Syndecan 4 peptide (ab52121).


  • Function
    Cell surface proteoglycan that bears heparan sulfate.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in epithelial and fibroblastic cells.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the syndecan proteoglycan family.
  • Post-translational
    Shedding is enhanced by a number of factors such as heparanase, thrombin or EGF. Also by stress and wound healing. PMA-mediated shedding is inhibited by TIMP3.
  • Cellular localization
    Membrane. Secreted. Shedding of the ectodomain produces a soluble form.

  • Anti-Syndecan 4 antibody (ab24511) + Jurkat Cell lysate

    Predicted band size: 22 kDa
    Observed band size: 24 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)

  • ab24511 (1µg/ml) staining Syndecan 4 in human colon using an automated system (DAKO Autostainer Plus). Using this protocol there is strong staining of cellular membrane compartment in the subset of intestinal glands.
    Sections were rehydrated and antigen retrieved with the Dako 3 in 1 AR buffer EDTA pH 9.0 in a DAKO PT link. Slides were peroxidase blocked in 3% H2O2 in methanol for 10 mins. They were then blocked with Dako Protein block for 10 minutes (containing casein 0.25% in PBS) then incubated with primary antibody for 20 min and detected with Dako envision flex amplification kit for 30 minutes. Colorimetric detection was completed with Diaminobenzidine for 5 minutes. Slides were counterstained with Haematoxylin and coverslipped under DePeX. Please note that, for manual staining, optimization of primary antibody concentration and incubation time is recommended. Signal amplification may be required.
  • ICC/IF image of ab24511 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 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 (ab24511, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 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.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of mature rat intervertebral disc tissue, staining Syndecan 4 with ab24511.

    Tissue was fixed in 4% paraformaldehyde before incubating with primary antibody (1/200) overnight at 4°C. An AlexaFluor®488-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.
