Applications of Luciferase antibody

This product has been reported to work in the following applications. This information is derived from testing within our laboratories, peer-reviewed publications or personal communications from the originators. Please refer to references indicated for further information. For general protocol recommendations, please visit the antibody protocols page.
Application Name Verified Min Dilution Max Dilution
ELISA 1/500 1/5000
Flow Cytometry 1 10ug/ml
Immunohistology - Frozen
Western Blotting 1/100
  1. 1 Membrane permeabilisation is required for this application. Bio-Rad recommends the use of Leucoperm™ (Product Code BUF09) for this purpose.
Where this antibody has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the antibody for use in their own system using appropriate negative/positive controls.

Flow Cytometry
Use 10ul of the suggested working dilution to label 1x106 cells in 100ul.
Western Blotting
MCA2076 detects a band of approximately 55 - 60 kDa with a sample of 1ug of purified luciferase from Photinus pyralis on a Western blot.
