  • ICC/IF image of ab72984 stained Hek293 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 (ab72984, 1/1000 dilution) 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.

Thank you for your reply and for kindly providing the word document. This has made conducting the alignments much more straight forward.

I am sorry to confirm that as far as we are aware,none of our TMEM16A antibodieshas been tested with samples from Zebrafish. All tested species covered by the 6 month guarantee are stated on our datasheets, and these are updated as soon as any new information is brought to our attention.

I have obtained the immungoen sequences for all our TMEM16A antibodies and checked the alignment of these with the 3 Zebrafish sequences you provided.

Regrettably, for most of these the alignments are too low for us to suggest they may detect in Zebrafish. However, there is one with reasonable alignment that you may like to consider trying. I can recmomend to review the online datasheet for further information.

https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=84115 (or use the following: https://www.abcam.com/index.html?datasheet=84115).

Immunogen: ################

Alignment with Zebrafish sequences provided:
Sequence 1: 68%
Sequence 2: 68%
Sequence 3: 72%

We recommend alignment should be over 85% to predict that an antibody will detect. It isstill possible that with 68-72% alignment therecould be some crossreactivity. However, even when alignmentis very highwe cannot guarantee this without further testing.

If you would like to test the ab84115 in Zebrafish, please contact me again by replying to this message prior to the purchase as you may be eligible for our testing discount program.

Otherwise, we like to encourage all of our customers to submit an Abreview via the online product datasheet. We always appreciate customer feedback, whether positive or negative, and we make all product information available to researchers. Each Abreview earns Abpoints that can be used for discounts on future purchases or rewards such as Amazon.com gift certificates.
