||NT3 is a member of the neurotrophin family, that controls survival and differentiation of visceral and proprioceptive sensory neurons. NT3 is closely related to both NGF and BDNF. It may be involved in the maintenance of the adult nervous system, and may affect development of neurons in the embryo when it is expressed in human placenta. NT3-deficient mice generated by gene targeting display sevvere movement defects of the limbs. The mature peptide of this protein is identical in all mammals examined including human, pig, rat and mouse. SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Secreted protein. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Brain and peripheral tissues. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the NGF-beta family.

||A synthetic peptide (YAEHKSHRGEY) as part of human (aa: 139-149), mouse and rat NT3 protein conjugated to BSA has been used as the immunogen.
||Neurotrophin-3; Neurotrophic factor; HDNF; Nerve growth factor 2; NGF-2; Ntf3; Ntf-3
||IHC, ELISA, WB, inhibition of biological activity. A concentration of 1-10 µg/ml is recommended for IHC, ELISA, WB and inhibition of biological activity in vitro; 2-10 µg/ml (ED50) for in vivo use. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
||A cross reactivity of less than 0.1% to mouse NGF, recombinant human BDNF and NT4/5 has been shown by dot blot.
||This antiserum is known to react with rat, chicken and human NT3.
||If you would like to use this product in another species other than those specified here, or to see the shared ID between the immunogen used here in different species and/or other molecules, simply copy the immunogen (from the Immunogen field) and paste it HERE and blast/format it. Note that, antisera raised against synthetic peptides are quite often very specific for that peptide ie, only one single amino acid difference may be enough to restrict the specificity to a particular molecule. Regardless, you can always contact us if you need assistance with this.
||Reconstitute in 20 µl of sterile water. Centrifuge to remove any insoluble material.
||After reconstitution keep aliquots at -20°C for a higher stability, and at 4°C with an appropriate antibacterial agent. Glycerol (1:) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid repetitive freeze/thaw cycles.
