This template should be added to the main page of all antibodies documented on this wiki (and only the main page). It will add a useful infobox using the information supplied (see below) and will automatically add the antibody to [[Category:All antibodies]].
Cutting and pasting the text below will create an infobox (see right):
For help with parameter values, see below.
This section describes parameters that govern infobox content.
|| Name of the antibody e.g. gamma Tubulin 1 Abcam 12345
|| Type of antibody e.g. mouse monoclonal, lama polyclonal, etc.
|| UNIPROT Database id of the antibody e.g. P23258
|| Cross-reactive against: antibody works against proteins of these species; e.g. human and mouse
|| Not Cross-reactive with: antibody does not recognise proteins of these species; e.g. rat
||Raised Against: type of molecule the antibody was raised against; e.g. peptide or full-length protein
||Commercial Provider or source for this antibody based upon experience.
||Commercial Provider URL: web page related to this antibody.
|| Suitable for Western Blotting: Is the antibody suitable for Western Blotting? Possible values: failed, worked, uncertain, untested
|| Immunoprecipitation: as above; does the antibody work in this experiment? Possible values: failed, worked, uncertain, untested
|| Immunocytochemistry: As above; please add the evidence to the main page. Possible values: failed, worked, uncertain, untested
|| Immuno-histo-cryo-chemistry: Possible values: failed, worked, uncertain, untested
|| Immuno-histo-paraffin-chemistry: Possible values: failed, worked, uncertain, untested
Using the infobox
Existing antibody pages
If you want to add the infobox to an existing page, copy and paste the code at the top of this page.
Enhancing this template
If you would like to improve on this template, thanks! This is a complicated template so here is some help along the way:
If you would like to fix documentation, please be aware that documentation and code is split into two files:
- Template:Antibody/doc - stores all documentation.
- Template:Antibody - stores only the code for the template and a small amount of non-included material (category links, transcluded documentation link).
In addition, Template:Antibody/Sample stores the boiler plate that is preloaded into newly created pages and contains some basic documentation on how to fill in the template parameters. It needs to be kept in sync with Template:Antibody/doc.
- To make this template easy to use, each label in the infobox is linked to documentation on the template parameter(s) it displays. If you add a parameter, please be sure to also add it to the content parameter documentation and link its label to that documentation.
See if the following pages are still ok, after edited this template.
