    See all BDNF primary antibodies
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [35928.11] to BDNF
  • SpecificityMonoclonal Anti-Human BDNF will neutralize the biological activity of rhBDNF. The antibody shows < 2% cross-reactivity with rhbeta-NGF, rhNT-3 and rhNT-4 based on ELISA and immunoblotting.
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: ELISA, WB, IHC-Pmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Human
  • Immunogen

    Recombinant human BDNF (rhBDNF) expressed in Sf 21 insect cells.

  • Positive control
    • Brain tissue lysate
  • General notesEndotoxin: <10 ng/mg by LAL method.

    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 ab10505 in the following tested applications.

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

Application Abreviews Notes
ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 2 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 27.8 kDa.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval via the microwave method before commencing with IHC staining protocol.


  • 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).
  • Cellular localizationSecreted.

Thank you for contacting us.

I am sorry to hear you have been experiencing problems with Anti-BDNF antibody ab10505 in rat samples.

Unfortunately, this antibody has not been tested with rat samples and therefore we cannot guarante...

Thank you very much for providing your protocol details. I think the 60kDa band you originally observed is a result of the homodimerization of BDNF in the samples in your first experiment so this is very promising (for example the datasheet of anoth...
