Hi all,

Abcam strongly reccommend to block ab9484 b-actin loading control
antibody (ab9484) with BSA instead of milk. Does anyone know what milk
component is most likely to cause problems with this ab? I need to
block this antibody with casein, hence my question.

best, Lech

Hi Lech,

Check this paper- looks like they used your Abcam ab and blocked with casein... (Sorry I can't get the whole paper from home). Hope this is useful to you.



150 ll of the blocking solution consisting of 1% casein in ... for b-actin (Abcam) as a loading control and for normalization ...
