Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab26953 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
  • Application notes
    ELISA: 1/10000.
    Antigen is coated on EIA strips at 0.4 µg per well. Antiserum is diluted in series from 1/10 to 1/10,000 and added in separate wells.
    Incubate the antibody for 0.5 hr. Wash off unbound antibodies and add anti-rabbit IgG-HRP conjugate. Wash the plates and add substrate to develop color for 5 min. Read absorbance at 405 nm. The intensity of the colour is directly proportional to the amount of antigen present.
    A positive is when the sample signal is double that of the control or pre-immune serum.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Relevance
      Taxol (paclitaxel) is particularly effective as an anticancer agent because tubulin is not its only target. It also binds to a protein called Bcl2, which normally blocks the process of apoptosis, or cell death. Taxol therefore plays a dual role in destroying dividing cells,firstly by stabilising assembled microtubules and thereby halting mitosis, and secondly by inhibiting Bcl2 and allowing apoptosis to proceed.
    • Alternative names
