For western blots, incubate membrane with diluted primary antibody in 5% w/v BSA, 1X TBS, 0.1% Tween® 20 at 4°C with gentle shaking, overnight.
NOTE: Please refer to primary antibody product webpage for recommended antibody dilution.
From sample preparation to detection, the reagents you need for your Western Blot are now in one convenient kit: #12957 Western Blotting Application Solutions Kit
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
Load 20 µl onto SDS-PAGE gel (10 cm x 10 cm).
NOTE: Volumes are for 10 cm x 10 cm (100 cm2) of membrane; for different sized membranes, adjust volumes accordingly.
* Avoid repeated exposure to skin.

NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.
Recommended Fluorochrome-conjugated Anti-Rabbit secondary antibodies:
NOTE: Cells should be grown, treated, fixed and stained directly in multi-well plates, chamber slides or on coverslips.
NOTE: All subsequent incubations should be carried out at room temperature unless otherwise noted in a humid light-tight box or covered dish/plate to prevent drying and fluorochrome fading.

Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Asp39 of human β-galactosidase protein.
β-galactosidase (also known as β-gal) is an essential hydrolase enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of galactose-containing carbohydrates into monosaccharides. Substrates of β-galactosides include lactose, various glycoproteins, ganglioside GM1, and lactosylceramides. β-galactosidase is used widely in molecular biology; for example, isolation of recombinant bacteria during molecular cloning utilizes α-complementation of the bacterial β-galactosidase gene (lacZ) in the presence of a β-gal substrate to identify recombinant clones (1). In cell biology, Senescence-Associated beta-galactosidase (SA-β-gal), defined as β-gal activity at pH 6.0, is a widely used marker of replicative senescence. While initially thought to derive from a unique isoform of β-galactosidase expressed specifically in senescent cells (2), SA-β-gal activity was subsequently shown to result from overexpression and accumulation of β-galactosidase in endogenous lysosomes, and is not specifically required for replicative senescence (3).
