• Product nameAnti-BDNF antibody
    See all BDNF primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to BDNF
  • SpecificityBy dot blots, less than 0.1% cross-reactivity against mouse NGF, recombinant human NT3 or neurotrophin 4/5. Cross reactivity: Known to react with BDNF from rat and human. Cross-reactivity with other species has not been determined yet.
  • Tested applicationsDot Blot, IHC-Fr, Neutralising, WBmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Human
  • Immunogen

    Recombinant full length protein (Human).

  • Positive control
    • Brain tissue lysate
  • General notesThis antibody has proven particularly useful for western blot, immunohistochemistry and biological inhibition. For immunohistochemistry, cell bodies are clearly stained as well as some nerve terminals in the dorsal horn of the rat spinal cord. The antiserum does not stain the finest nerve terminals.

    For BDNF, multiple WB bands are possible and expected. The human protein has 5 isoforms (precursors: 28 – 37 kDa) and can be glycosylated (Uniprot: http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/P23560). The mature form is expected at ~14 kDa (monomer) and the dimer at ~28 kDa.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab6200 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

WB 1/1000.


  • FunctionDuring development, promotes the survival and differentiation of selected neuronal populations of the peripheral and central nervous systems. Participates in axonal growth, pathfinding and in the modulation of dendritic growth and morphology. 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.
  • Tissue specificityBrain. Highly expressed in hippocampus, amygdala, cerebral cortex and cerebellum. Also expressed in heart, lung, skeletal muscle, testis, prostate and placenta.
  • Involvement in diseaseBulimia nervosa 2
    Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NGF-beta family.
  • Post-translational
    The propeptide is N-glycosylated and glycosulfated.
    Converted into mature BDNF by plasmin (PLG).

We apologize for this large difference in the volume of the final product. We are unsure the cause for the large volume lost in volume even after a QC to check the volume of each vial prior to delivery. Perhaps, the problem may be caused by the change ...
