General notes

Western blot protocol advice:

We recommend blocking with 2-5% BSA as we have found that use of 5% milk significantly reduces the band intensity for beta actin. Please see the comparison data in the images section. If milk block is required, we recommend using ab8224 mouse monoclonal [mAbcam 8224] to beta actin. Contact our Scientific Support team for more information or advice.
