WB Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml.


  • Relevance
    The V5 epitope tag is derived from a small epitope (Pk) present on the P and V proteins of the paramyxovirus of simian virus 5 (SV5). The V5 tag is usually used with all 14 amino acids (GKPIPNPLLGLDST), although it has also been used with a shorter 9 amino acid sequence (IPNPLLGLD).

  • A stably transfected 293T human cell line harbouring the GAL4 upstream activation sequence was transiently transfected with a V5 or T7- tagged GAL4 DNA Binding Domain construct. 48 hours post transfection Chromatin was prepared according to the Abcam X-ChIP protocol. The ChIP was performed with 25 ug chromatin, 5ug of antibody and 20 ul of Protein A/G beads. A non-specific antibody was used as the negative control. The immunoprecipitated DNA was quantified by real time PCR (SYBR Green approach).

I'm sorry but there is no information available regarding how many V5 tags were incorporated into this GAL4 fusion protein.

Please contact us againif you have any further questions.

Thanks for your enquiry.

The scientist who may have further information regarding the number of V5 tags on the vector is out of town until next Monday. I will follow up with you early next week.

Thanks for your patience! Please feel...

Thank you for your inquiry.
I would like to reassure you that both antibodies are tested and guaranteed for CHIP.
I can confirm that ab15828 was tested by our lab in house for CHIP and therefore I would recommend to use this antibody.

Thank you for letting me know the progress. It does look like the expression in the HeLa cell line is significantly better and the background staining does appear to have been reduced considerably. I can however understand your concern in continuing to...

As far as I could tell, expression in HeLa cells should not be a problem with the CMV promoter so if you still get the same results after trying this get back to me and we'll discuss what the next course of action is (refund/alternative antibody). I...
