> Conclusions

  • rabbit α-H3K27me3 07-449 shows non-specific signal.
  • mouse α-H3K27me3 ab6002 failed (also showed no signal in IF, 4/05/10)
  • rabbit α-H3K4 C42D8 failed.
  • mouse α-p16 ab16880 failed.
  • Wash filters overnight in 1x PBST and repeat staining with gentler blocking buffer (0.5% BSA/PBST).
