Sheep antibody to rh BDNF: Whole serum

$297.00USD


Catalogue No. S-016-100
Description BDNF belongs to the neurotrophin family and promotes the survival of neuronal populations that are all located either in the central nervous system or directly connected to it. It is a major regulator of synaptic transmission and plasticity at adult synapses in many regions of the CNS. The versatility of BDNF is emphasized by its contribution to a range of adaptive neuronal responses including long-term potentiation (LTP), long-term depression (LTD), certain forms of short-term synaptic plasticity, as well as homeostatic regulation of intrinsic neuronal excitability. The alterations in BDNF expression induced by various kinds of brain insult including stress, ischemia, seizure activity and hypoglycemia, may contribute to some pathologies such as depression, epilepsy, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's disease. Microglia release BDNF that may contribute to neuroinflammation and neuropathic pain. SUBUNIT: Monomers and homodimers. Binds to NTRK2/TRKB. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Secreted protein. POst translation modification: Converted into mature BDNF by plasmin (PLG). SIMILARITY: Belongs to the NGF-beta family.
Batch No. See product label
Unit size 100 uL
Antigen Recombinant human BDNF
Other Names Brain-derived neurotrophic factor; Abrineurin; proBDNF;
Accession BDNF_HUMAN
Produced in Sheep
Purity Whole serum
Applications IHC, Inhibition of biological activity in vitro/in vivo. Recommended to be used at a dilution of 1:200-2000 for immunohistochemistry on Zamboni's fixed frozen tissue; not recommended for formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissues. 1:10 to 1:50 for inhibition of biological activity in vitro. Use neat for in vivo studies at 5-10 uL/g body weight. Whole serum format will caused immune responses, purified format is preferred for most in vivo work. Not recommended for western blots. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Specificity A cross reactivity of less than 1% against mouse NGF, recombinant human NT3 or NT4/5 has been shown by one site ELISA.
Cross-reactivity This antiserum recognises BDNF from rat, mouse and human.
Blast it If you would like to see the shared identity between different species or other proteins follow the link in Accession field, select then the sequence (make sure that you are selecting the sequence that you are interested in, as the sequence may be the precursor rather than the mature protein for example) and copy and paste it HERE and blast/format it.
Form Lyophilised
Reconstitution Reconstitute in 100 uL of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
Storage After reconstitution keep aliquots at -20C for a higher stability, and at 2-8C with an appropriate antibacterial agent. Glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid repetitive freeze/thaw cycles.
Expiry Date 12 months after purchase
