PACSIN1 Blocking Peptide (#BLP-IP023) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-PACSIN1 Antibody (#AIP-023) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-PACSIN1 primary antibody, this makes it a good negative reagent control to help confirm antibody specificity in western blot and immunohistochemistry applications. This control is also often called a pre-adsorption control.

- Expression of PACSIN1 in rat hippocampus.Immunohistochemical staining of perfusion-fixed frozen rat brain sections with Anti-PACSIN1 Antibody (#AIP-023), (1:200), followed by goat anti-rabbit-AlexaFluor-488. A. Staining in the rat hippocampal CA1 region, showed PACSIN1 immunoreactivity (green) in some neurons (arrows) in the pyramidal layer (P). B. Pre-incubation of the antibody with PACSIN1 Blocking Peptide (BLP-IP023), suppressed staining. Cell nuclei are stained with DAPI (blue).
