    Specific for VAChT.
    Affinity purified with the immunogen. Guinea pig serum albumin was added for stabilization.
    Strep-Tag® fusion protein of the C-terminal part of rat VAChT (aa 475-530).
  • Application Notes
    WB: 1 : 500 up to 1 : 1000 (AP staining)
    IP: not tested yet
    ICC: not tested yet
    IHC: 1 : 100 up to 1 : 300

    This antibody is less sensitive compared to the rabbit antibody. VAChT aggregates after boiling, making it necessary to run SDS-PAGE only with non-boiled samples.

    Full Protocol
    • Dissect organ of Corti from the mouse cochlea in the inner ear as described in Maison, Liberman, and Liberman (2016).
    • Cryoprotect and freeze/thaw to permeabilized the tissue:
      • Transfer cochlear pieces to a 5ml disposable cup with approximately 1ml of 30% sucrose in 100mM phosphate buffer (PB) at RT.
      • Incubate tissue on a shaker for 15min at RT.
      • Wash tisse with 30% sucrose in PB at RT.
      • Incubate tissue on a shaker for 15min at RT.
      • Place cup on dry ice untill contents freeze completely.
      • Allow cup to thaw at RT.
      • Pipet out the sucrose solution and wash tissue 3x for 15min with PBS containing 0.1% triton X-100 on a shaker at RT.
    • Block tissue with 5% goat serum containing 0.3% Triton-X on a shaker for 30-60 min at RT.
    • Pipet out PBS + detergent and add blocking solution (supplier, product no, lot no).
    • Cut cap off a 1.5ml microcentrifuge tube and transfer pieces in the blocking solution to the flipped upside-down cap.
    • Incubate tissue in the flipped upside-down caps with 100µl primary
      • guinea pig anti-SLC18A3 antibody (antibodies-online, ABIN1742304, lot 139105/6) diluted 1:300
      • chicken anti-Parvalbumin (Synaptic Systems, 195006) diluted 1:400
    • in blocking solution ON at RT on an agitator. Fasten tubes onto the caps and and protect them from the light.
    • Pipet out the primaries.
    • Rinse tissue 3x for a total of 10 min with PBS containing 0.1 % Triton X-100.
    • Incubate tissue in the flipped upside-down caps with 100µl secondary
      • goat anti-guinea pig AF633 conjugated antibody (Life Technologies, A21105, lot 1812311)
      • goat anti-chicken AF488 conjugated antibody (Life Technologies, A11039, lot 1812246)
    • diluted 1:300 in blocking solution for 1h at RT away from the light.
    • Rinse tissue 3x for a total of 10min with PBS.
    • Transfer tissue pieces onto a slide with stereocilia facing up.
    • Add mounting Fluoromount-G with DAPI mounting medium (ThermoFisher Scientific, 00-4959-52, lot B2215-N915) then coverslip.
    • Image acquisition on a Zeiss Axiovert epifluorescence with with a 63x objective, using a Zeiss ApoTome for optical sectioning.
    Experimental Notes
    • The observed signal on outer hair cells in the organ of Corti for ABIN1742304 appears indistinguishable to the published and expected signal documented in numerous publications (see e.g. figure 4 in Maison, Liberman, and Liberman (2016)).

    • No signal was observed in either of the negative controls. ABIN1742304 worked very well at 1:300 dilution. It could probably be further diluted and still achieve acceptable signal to noise ratio.

    • No signal was observed with the secondary antibody only negative control.

  • Format
    For reconstitution add 50 µL H2O to get a 1mg/ml solution of antibody in PBS. Then aliquot and store at -20 °C until use.
    Handling Advice
    Affinity purified antibodies are less robust than antisera, since protease inhibitors are also removed during purification. Hence, storage at 4 °C for prolonged periods (i.e. several weeks), is not recommended.
    -20 °C
    Storage Comment
    Unlabeled lyophilized antibodies are stable in this form without loss of quality at ambient temperatures for several weeks or even months. They can be stored at 4°C for several years. Lyophilized antibodies must not be stored in the freezer, they may be destroyed!
