TRPA1 (extracellular) Blocking Peptide (#BLP-CC037) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-TRPA1 (extracellular) Antibody (#ACC-037) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-TRPA1 (extracellular) 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.
- Western blot analysis of rat DRG (lanes 1,2), non-differentiated PC12 cells (lanes 3,5) and differentiated PC12 cells (lanes 4,6) lysates:
- Expression of TRPA1 in rat DRGImmunohistochemical staining of rat dorsal root ganglion (DRG) using Anti-TRPA1 (extracellular) Antibody (#ACC-037) (1:200). A. TRPA1 staining (green) is detected in both cells (horizontal arrow) and processes (vertical arrow). B. Nuclear staining using DAPI as the counterstain. C. Merged image of A and B.
