Shank1 Blocking Peptide (#BLP-PZ011) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-Shank1 Antibody (#APZ-011) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-Shank1 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 Shank1 in rat hippocampusImmunohistochemical staining of perfusion-fixed frozen rat brain sections using Anti-Shank1 Antibody (#APZ-011), (1:300), followed by goat anti-rabbit-AlexaFluor-488 secondary antibody. Shank1 staining (green) is detected in interneurons (vertical arrows) and in the pyramidal layer (P, horizontal arrows). Nuclei are stained with DAPI (blue).
