  • General notes

    ab220249 is the carrier-free version of ab210405 This format is designed for use in antibody labeling, including fluorochromes, metal isotopes, oligonucleotides, enzymes.


    Our carrier-free formats are supplied in a buffer free of BSA, sodium azide and glycerol for higher conjugation efficiency.

    Use our conjugation kits  for antibody conjugates that are ready-to-use in as little as 20 minutes with <1 minute hands-on-time and 100% antibody recovery: available for fluorescent dyes, HRP, biotin and gold.

    Ab220249 is compatible with the Maxpar® Antibody Labeling Kit from Fluidigm.

    Please note that the original Bennett et al . (2016) publication (PubMed: 26884166), used a combination of clones 106-6 and 85-5. With the author&rsquo;s permission, the decision was made to add the recombinant version of only a single clone (106-6) to the catalogue as it performed equally well on its own.

  • Flow cytometry analysis of HEK-293T (human embryonic kidney) transfected with Myc-His tagged TMEM119 expression vector labeling TMEM119 with ab210405 at 1/2000 dilution (0.1μg/mL) (right) compared with isotype control rabbit monoclonal IgG ab172730 (Left). Cells were surface-stained with ab210405, then fixed with 2% PFA for 10 minutes and permeabilised with 0.1% Tween-20 for 30 minutes. Next, they were stained with Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugated Myc-tag antibody and Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated secondary antibody. Only Myc-tag (+) population showed TMEM119 positive staining.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab210405).

  • Flow cytometric analysis of acutely isolated primary mouse microglia (P60 BL6 mouse; wildtype CD11b+CD45lo brain cells) cells  labeling TMEM119 with ab210405 at 0.5μg/mL (red) and 0.1μg/mL (blue), compared with TMEM119 KO primary mouse brain cells (black) stained with ab210405 at 0.5μg/mL. Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor®488) at 1/500 dilution was used as the secondary antibody.

    No signal was detected on the surface of CD11b+CD45lo brain cells from TMEM119 KO mouse (black) stained with ab210405; whereas in wildtype CD11b+CD45lo brain cells, cell surface staining was observed (red 0.5ug/mL; blue 0.1ug/mL).

    The data was provided by Ben Barres’ lab (Stanford University).

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab210405).
