Our internal data indicates that mouse and rat are not recommended for IHC.
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.

During 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.
Brain. Highly expressed in hippocampus, amygdala, cerebral cortex and cerebellum. Also expressed in heart, lung, skeletal muscle, testis, prostate and placenta.
Involvement in disease
Bulimia nervosa 2 Congenital central hypoventilation syndrome
Belongs to the NGF-beta family.
The propeptide is N-glycosylated and glycosulfated. Converted into mature BDNF by plasmin (PLG).

Predicted band size: 15 kDa Additional bands at: 15 kDa (possible mature (processed) protein), 28 kDa (possible multimer), 35 kDa, 45 kDa (possible immature (unprocessed)). We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MES buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 35 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using Licor blocking buffer before being incubated with ab108319 (1/1000) overnight at 4°C. Ab8245 (mouse anti-GAPDH; 0.05 ug/mL) was included as a loading control. Antibody binding was detected using goat anti-rabbit IgG IR-680 (green) and goat anti-mouse IgG IR800 (red) at a 1:10,000 dilution for 1hr at room temperature and then imaged using the Licor Odyssey CLx

Immunohistochemical analysis of brain tissue from sedentary (SED) or exercised rats (EX), staining BDNF with ab108319.
Antigen retrieval was performed by enzymatic method at room temperature. Tissue was permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 and blocked with 10% goat serum. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100) for 3 days at 3°C. An AlexaFluor®568-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (1/1500) was used as the secondary antibody.

Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence analysis of HeLa (human cervix adenocarcinoma) cells labelling BDNF with ab108319 at a dilution of 1/750. Cells were fixed with Paraformaldehyde and permeabilised with 0.5% Triton-X100 in PBS. ab150081 (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody.
The antibody produces a strong, golgi-associated labelling pattern in both PF and MeOH fixed samples.
