Application Notes

Validated Applications:
FC: 1 µg /1x106 cells
IHC (FFPE): 1:10 - 1:500 dilution
WB*: 1 - 5 µg/ml dilution

Published Applications:

*For optimal results, primary antibody incubations should be performed at room temperature. The addition of 0.1% Tween 20 to all Blotto solutions may also reduce background. Individual optimization may be required. In Western blots the binding pattern of ATF-6 may vary as the antibody may recognize both full-length and cleaved forms of ATF-6. Researchers should consult literature for reported band sizes in their sample or treatment conditions.


This ATF-6 antibody was raised against a partial protein containing amino acid residues 1-273 of human ATF-6.


PBS containing 0.05% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.

ATF-6 antibody detection by Western blot. The analysis was performed using 20 µg of whole mouse liver lysate and ATF-6 antibody at a 3 µg/ml dilution. A protein of approximately 90 kDa is detected. The lower band may represent cleaved ATF-6.


ATF-6 (activating transcription factor 6) is a transmembrane transcription factor that acts during endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress to activate transcription.

Positive Control

Active Motif's 293 nuclear extract (Catalog No. 36033) can be used as a positive control for ATF-6 antibody.

Chromatin IP Assays

This antibody has been validated for use in ChIP and/or ChIP-Seq, and can be used with Active Motif's ChIP-IT® High Sensitivity Kit or our magnetic bead-based ChIP-IT® Express Kits.

Bridging Antibody to Improve ChIP, MeDIP and IP

Some isotypes of mouse IgG antibodies do not bind well to protein G-conjugated agarose/magnetic beads, which are commonly used in ChIP, MeDIP and IP experiments. Capture efficiency can be improved by including an anti-mouse IgG bridging antibody because it binds with a strong affinity to both the protein G beads and the mouse IgG antibody. By increasing the affinity of the mouse primary antibody for the protein G bead, the Bridging Antibody for Mouse IgG can help improve the results of all ChIP, MeDIP and IP experiments that use ATF-6 antibody (mAb).


Some products may be shipped at room temperature. This will not affect their stability or performance. Upon receipt, unconjugated antibodies may be stored at -20°C for up to 2 years. Fluorophore- & enzyme-conjugated antibodies should be stored at 4°C. Fluorophore-conjugated antibodies should be protected from light. Keep reagents on ice when not in storage; to avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, we recommend aliquoting items that will be stored frozen into single-use fractions prior to freezing.


This product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of receipt.
