Re: [Histonet] non-mouse anti-flag antibody


SigmaAldrich has a large variety of anti-FLAG antibodies.  Have the usual mouse culprits but if that is not what you want, I've used their rabbit monoclonal anti-FLAG Ab successfully on mouse tissue (didn't try brain).  They also have rabbit polyclonal anti-FLAG but did not try.  I'm not a big mouse-on-mouse fan at all.  But I have used their directly conjugated mouse monoclonal anti-FLAGs on mouse tissue (again, not brain).  Remember, if you don't know, that anti-FLAG antibodies are a bit idiosyncratic.  Some MUST have calcium (Ca2+) ions present during incubation or you will get no binding.  Some are not like that but many are.
