Background

The antiserum against the vesicular acetylcholine transporter is a unique immunohistochemical marker for cholinergic nerves, more specific than the commonly used acetylchiolinesterase (AchE), since it does not react with postsynaptic neurons, and is more sensitive than choline acetyltransferase (ChAT). The antiserum recognizes VAChT both in the CNS and PNS of rat and mouse. Absorption with 10-100 ug immunogen per ml diluted antiserum abolishes staining.

Positive control: frozen sections of rat small intestine.

FAQs
The concentration of unpurified supernatant, ascites, unpurified guinea pig serum and unpurified rabbit serum is not determined.
The concentration of purified antibodies is mentioned on the datasheet.
For prediluted antibodies the concentration may vary from lot to lot. The concentration of these antibodies is not mentioned on the datasheet and can be requested at support@progen.com.

Most of our purified mouse antibodies contain 0.5% BSA as stabilizer. If BSA was added to the antibody solution, it is stated in the datasheet.
The supernatant format contains FCS proteins from cell culture medium supplemented with FCS.
The serum antibodies contain other proteins present in serum.

Lyophilized antibodies can be stored at 2-8°C until expiration.
Most of our liquid antibodies and reconstituted lyophilized antibodies may be stored for short term storage (up to 3 month) at 2-8°C. For long term storage we recommend to store the antibody at -20°C in aliquots. Please avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
Most of our conjugated antibodies should be stored at 2-8°C.
The individual storage conditions are mentioned on the datasheet.

The expiration date of our antibodies is indicated on the product label.
  1. Methanol/ acetone fixation: Immerse slide in precooled (-20°C) methanol for 5 min, immerse in precooled (-20°C) acetone for 30-60 sec, let specimen air dry before antibody incubation.
  2. Methanol/ acetone fixation plus detergent permeabilization: After methanol/ acetone fixation and air-drying dip slide either in a solution containing 0.1-0.2% Triton X-100 in PBS or in 0.1% saponin in PBS for 1-5 min at room temperature (enhances accessibility of many cytoskeletal antigens).

  • Air-drying of the section.
  • Block with the serum of the species in which the secondary antibody was raised for 30 min.
  • Incubation with 1st antibody 1 h at RT in moist chamber.
  • Wash 3x with PBS.
  • Incubation with appropriate fluorescent secondary antibody, 30-60 min at RT.
  • Wash 3x with PBS.
  • Immerse shortly into ethanol.
  • Let air dry.
  • Cover with mounting medium.

Most of our antibodies contain 0.09% sodium azide as preservative. If a preservative is added, it is mentioned in the datasheet.
The optimal antibody dilution for your specific protocol and application needs to be titrated in your lab with your equipment and sample. The optimal dilution may vary between protocols and samples. A good dilution for starting the titration is the dilution mentioned in the datasheet. If the sample needs a specific treatment (eg. Antigen retrieval for IHC on FFPE sections) this should also be mentioned on the antibody datasheet. 
PROGEN antibodies are shipped at ambient temperature. The antibodies are stable at ambient temperature for the shipment period. Please store the antibodies as indicated in the datasheet upon arrival.
The concentration of specific antibody in our guinea pig serum is not determined.
In guinea pigs the antibody concentration in serum varies from 10 to 20 mg/ml; specific antibodies represent normally about 0.1-1% of total IgG. Total protein concentration varies from 40 to 65 mg/ml, with the main constituent (about 60%) being albumin.
