Question

Does anti-Connexin 43/GJA1 antibody PA1026-1 work for IHC with heart muscle?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-04-21

Answer

According to the expression profile of heart muscle, GJA1 is highly expressed in heart muscle. So, it is likely that anti-Connexin 43/GJA1 antibody PA1026-1 will work for IHC with heart muscle.

Question

Can you help my question with product PA1026-1, anti-Connexin 43/GJA1 antibody. I was wondering if it would be possible to conjugate this antibody with biotin. I would need it to be without BSA or sodium azide. I am planning on using a buffer exchange of sodium azide with PBS only. Would there be problems for me to conjugate the antibody and store it in -20 degrees in small aliquots?

C. Bhatt

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-02-10

Answer

We suggest not storing this antibody with PBS buffer only in -20 degrees. If you want to store it in -20 degrees it is best to add some cryoprotectant like glycerol. If you want carrier free PA1026-1 anti-Connexin 43/GJA1 antibody, we can provide it to you in a special formula with trehalose and/or glycerol. These molecules will not interfere with conjugation chemistry and provide a good level of protection for the antibody from degradation. Please be sure to specify this in your purchase order.

Question

Does anti-Connexin 43/GJA1 antibody PA1026-1 work on zebrafish ICC with pigmented layer of retina?

K. Lewis

Verified customer

Asked: 2020-01-16

Answer

Our lab technicians have not validated anti-Connexin 43/GJA1 antibody PA1026-1 on zebrafish. You can run a BLAST between zebrafish and the immunogen sequence of anti-Connexin 43/GJA1 antibody PA1026-1 to see if they may cross-react. If the sequence homology is close, then you can perform a pilot test. Keep in mind that since we have not validated zebrafish samples, this use of the antibody is not covered by our guarantee. However we have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in zebrafish pigmented layer of retina in ICC, you can get your next antibody for free.

Question

Would PA1026-1 anti-Connexin 43/GJA1 antibody work on parafin embedded sections? If so, which fixation method do you recommend we use (PFA, paraformaldehyde, other)?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2018-04-05

Answer

As indicated on the product datasheet, PA1026-1 anti-Connexin 43/GJA1 antibody as been validated on IHC. It is best to use PFA for fixation because it has better tissue penetration ability. PFA needs to be prepared fresh before use. Long term stored PFA turns into formalin, as the PFA molecules congregate and become formalin.
