Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab85762 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|IHC-P||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
|ICC/IF||Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.|
|IP||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|WB||Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 155 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 129 kDa). Human Thrombospondin-1 is predicted to migrate in WB to ~155kDa as it contains a number of potential glycosylation sites; Swiss Prot predicts a protein of 129kDa not taking modifications into account.|
RelevanceThrombospondin is a regulator of many biological processes including cell growth, adhesion, migration, platelet aggregation, and fibrin deposition and lysis. It interacts with a number of plasma proteins such as fibrinogen and plasminogen and co-polymerizes with fibrin in clot formation. Thrombospondin also has multiple binding sites that interact with molecules such as fibronectin, collagens, laminin and heparan sulphate proteoglycans as well as binding growth factors such as TGF-beta1. Thrombospondin exerts an anti-adhesive effect which leads to cell rounding and detachment.

IHC image of Thrombospondin staining in human breast adenocarcinoma formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond 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 ab85762, 1µg/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.
ab85762 staining Thrombospondin 1 in HeLa cells. The cells were fixed with 4%formaldehyde (10 min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked with 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated overnight at +4°C with ab85762 at 5ugml then detected with an Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody (ab150081) at a 1/1000 dilution (shown in green). Nuclear DNA was labelled with DAPI (shown in blue), and ab195889, Mouse monoclonal to alpha Tubulin (Alexa Fluor® 594), at a 1/250 dilution (shown in red).
