Data Examples

Western Blot Detection of Human MCAM/CD146 antibody by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human MCAM/CD146 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of K562 human chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human MCAM/CD146 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF932) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for MCAM/CD146 at approximately 117 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Immunocytochemistry MCAM/CD146 antibody in BG01V Human Embryonic Stem Cells by Immunocytochemistry (ICC). View Larger

MCAM/CD146 in BG01V Human Embryonic Stem Cells. MCAM/CD146 was detected in immersion fixed BG01V human embryonic stem cells using Goat Anti-Human MCAM/CD146 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF932) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the Northern-Lights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell membranes and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Stem Cells on Coverslips.

MCAM/CD146 in Human Melanoma. MCAM/CD146 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human melanoma tissue using Goat Anti-Human MCAM/CD146 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF932) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).
