Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab70816 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
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 2.5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 2 - 4 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 47 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 43 kDa).


  • Function

    Ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. Probable developmental protein. May be a signaling molecule which affects the development of discrete regions of tissues. Is likely to signal over only few cell diameters.
  • Tissue specificity

    Detected in most adult tissues. Highest levels were found in heart and skeletal muscle. Low levels are found in brain.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in WNT10B are the cause of split-hand/foot malformation type 6 (SHFM6) [MIM:225300]. SHFM is a limb malformation involving the central rays of the autopod and presenting with syndactyly, median clefts of the hands and feet, and aplasia and/or hypoplasia of the phalanges, metacarpals, and metatarsals. SHFM6 is a autosomal recessive disorder.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the Wnt family.
  • Developmental stage

    Infant brain has higher levels of WNT10B than adult brain.
  • Cellular localization

    Predicted band size: 43 kDa
    Observed band size: 47 kDa
    why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
    Additional bands at: 93 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

  • ab70816 at 2.5 µ/ml staining Wnt10 in human skeletal muscle tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/ PFA fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections).

  • ICC/IF image of ab70816 stained HeLa 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 (ab70816, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 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.
