Blocking with Peptide in Immunohistochemistry/Immunocytochemistry Protocol


An antibody is incubated with excess peptide to neutralize the antibody, thus blocking the binding of the antibody. Tissue sections or cells probed with neutralized antibody are compared with tissue sections or cells probed with antibody alone (no blocking peptide). Staining recognized by the antibody will be absent in the tissue/cells probed with neutralized antibody.



Ready-To-Use IHC Antibody Diluent (Bethyl cat# IHC-101C)
Bethyl IHC Blocking Peptide
Bethyl IHC Antibody

  1. Prepare antibody according to the predetermined optimal working dilution using the IHC Antibody Diluent.
  2. Add 5 µl of peptide for each 1 µl of antibody. For example: if you use 5µl of antibody, add 25 µl of blocking peptide.
