Question (63703) | Mouse on Mouse Polymer IHC Kit (ab127055)

Go to datasheet (ab127055)


Customer kindly contacted us to find an anti-IL10 product to use in IHC-P/F in mouse. This product cannot react to human IL-10.


Thank you for contacting us.

I have found some information regarding the anti-IL-10 antibodies which we spoke of. To begin, I have found that Mouse IL-10 and Human IL-10 have only a 73% homology which is especially poor in the region around aa13-aa70 of mouse IL-10 (

The peptide from which ab9969 was created has 78% identity. Generally we do not expect an antibody to recognize a target if the homology is below 85% but this product is polyclonal and as such may be able to recognize human IL-10 in some lots.

The immunogen used to generate ab33471 is E coli-expressed recombinant mouse IL-10. We have not mapped the epitope of this antibody so we do not know exactly where the antibody will bind. .However this is a monoclonal product and as stated above the homology between IL-1o mouse and human is below the threshold for antibody recognition. As such this may be an appropriate choice but we have not tested in-house for cross reactivity of this antibody andcannot guarantee that it will not recognize human IL-10.

The same statements above can be repeated for ab25073. However as this is a mouse monoclonal and you wish to work in mouse tissue we would highly recommend use of theMouse on Mouse Polymer IHC Kit ab127055.

AB33471 and ab9969 would also qualify for enrollment in our AbTrial testing program. For UNTESTED applications, we have established a testing discount program. Here is a brief description of how it works:

The testing discount program is for customers who like to use an antibody/protein on an untested species/application. You would purchase the antibody at full price, test it and submit an Abreview with your data (positive or negative). On your next order you will receive a discount equal to the value of the product tested. The terms and conditions of this offer can be found here:

I have included links to each of these products below:
