Application DetailsIHC, 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.
SpecificityA 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.
