||Tenascin is a hexameric extracellular matrix protein. Tenascin may have a role in guiding migrating neurons as well as axons during development, synaptic plasticity as well as neuronal regeneration. In the embryo, Tenascin is found in developing epithelia, cartilage and bone. In the adult, Tenascin is found in smooth muscle, tendon and hyper-proliferative skin. At least 6 isoforms of human Tenascin are produced by alternative splicing.

||Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and Western Blotting (WB). A concentration of 1.0-2.0 ug/mL is recommended for WB. Human Tenascin (isoform 1) has a predicted length of 2,201 residues and MW of 241 kDa. A concentration of 2.0-4.0 ug/mL is recommended for IHC to detect the protein in formalin fixed and paraffin embedded tissues as well as formalin/acetone fixed frozen tissues. Biosensis recommends optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
||The specificity of this antibody has been confirmed by WB and IHC against the antigen.
||If you wish to use this product in a species other than those specified here and want to determine the amino acid sequence homology between the immunogen and the corresponding protein in that species, simply copy the amino acid sequence for this immunogen and test it on the BLAST database that you can access through the link below. Please note that antibodies raised against synthetic peptides are quite often very specific for that peptide. What this means in practise is that a single amino acid difference may be enough to restrict the specificity to a particular molecule.
The BLAST database can also be used to compare any amino acid sequence between species and between protein. The full amino acid sequence of the target protein can be found by following the link in the Accession field. You can then search any amino acid sequence in the target protein using the BLAST database. When selecting a sequence to search, please choose carefully, as the sequence you choose may be a precursor rather than the mature protein for example.
