Mouse monoclonal antibody to human p75NTR [MLR2] - ATTO 488

$297.00USD


Catalogue No. M-028-50-AT
Description p75NTR was originally discovered as a low affinity nerve growth factor receptor. Later it was found that it was the receptor for all neurotrophins. It mediates signals of neurotrophins for neuronal survival, apoptosis, neurite outgrowth and synaptic plasticity. Recently, it has been revealed that p75NTR not only acts as the receptor for neurotrophins but also the receptor for many other pathological ligands such as prions, rabies virus and amyloid beta. p75NTR also acts as a co-receptor for NOGO which mediates inhibitory signals of myelin associated protein. p75NTR is highly expressed in a number of non-neuronal and neuronal cells including motor neurons during development and also in damaged neurons. FUNCTION: Low affinity receptor which can bind to NGF, BDNF, NT-3, and NT-4. Can mediate cell survival as well as cell death of neural cells. SUBUNIT: Homodimer; disulfide-linked. Interacts with p75NTR-associated cell death executor.
Batch No. See product label
Unit size 50 µg
Antigen Human recombinant p75.
Isotype IgG2a
Clone MLR2
Other Names Low-affinity nerve growth factor receptor; NGF receptor; Gp80-LNGFR; p75 ICD; Low affinity neurotrophin receptor p75NTR; Tumor necrosis factor receptor superfamily member 16; CD271; NGFR; TNFRSF16;
Accession P08138 TNR16_HUMAN;
Produced in Mouse
Purity Immunoglobulin (IgG2A) was purified using Protein G column (Amersham Pharmacia), polished with Sephacryl 200HR (Amersham Pharmacia) in PBS. The IgG was then conjugated to ATTO 488 (ATTO TEC) and purified via gel filtration using a G25 medium grain gel.
Applications Immunofluorescence, flow cytometry. Suggested working dilutions: For immunofluorescence a concentration of 1-5 µg/ml is recommended. LIGHT fixation is a must, or unfixed works best. Epitope is sensitive to fixation. This antibody is not recommended for denaturing WB applications. For FACS a concentration of 20 µg/ml is recommended. This antibody does not block Neurotrophin binding. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Specificity Specificity was demonstrated by immunofluorescence and FACS analysis. Immunohistochemical staining of live motor neurons in spinal cord following lesion of sciatic nerve and in cholinergic neurons of the basal forebrain corresponding to published literature.
Cross-reactivity Reacts with human, mouse and rat. Other species have not yet been tested but it is expected that this antibody will be useful for the study of p75 in primates and other species.
Form Liquid, PBS pH 7.4
Storage The antibody conjugate can be stored at 4şC for up to 4 months with the addition of appropriate antibacterial agent.
