Anti-Nebulin antibody [NB2] (ab11099)


  • Product nameAnti-Nebulin antibody [NB2]
    See all Nebulin primary antibodies
  • Description
    Mouse monoclonal [NB2] to Nebulin
  • SpecificityDoes not cross react with titin. Monoclonal Anti-Nebulin reacts only with skeletal muscle, not with smooth muscle or different non-muscle tissues and cultured cells. The following is a summary of the antibody reactivity on various muscles in immunofluorescence using frozen section (a), isolated myofibrils (b), or immunoblotting (c): Fish skeletal muscle (a) (Torpedo spec.) + Toad skeletal muscle (a) (Bufo marinus) + Salamander skeletal muscle (c) (Ambystoma tigrina) + Salamander heart muscle (a) - Alligator skeletal muscle (a)(Alligator mississippiensis) + Pigeon skeletal muscle (b) (c) + Chicken skeletal muscle (b) (c) + Chicken heart muscle (c) - Chicken gizzard smooth muscle (c) - Mouse skeletal muscle (a) + Rat skeletal muscle (b) (c) + Rat heart muscle (a) - Rat rhabdomyosarcoma (a) + Rabbit skeletal muscle (b) + Bovine heart muscle (a) - Pig skeletal muscle (c) + Human skeletal muscle (a) +
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: WB, ICC/IFmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with a wide range of species, including chicken, mouse rat, rabbit, cow, pig, human, salamander, pigeon, alligator, toad and fish. Not yet tested in other species.
  • Immunogen

    Full length native protein (purified) (Chicken).

  • General notesIf slight turbidity occurs upon prolonged storage, clarify by centrifugation before use.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab11099 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
  • Application notesIF: 1/400.
    WB: Use at an assay dependent dilution. Detects a band of approximately 500 kDa.

    By indirect immunofluorescence, the antibody shows a typical striated staining pattern of frozen sections of chicken skeletal muscle. It stains within the I-band and shows a decoration line at a distance of 0.22 µm from the z-line in electron micrographs.

    Not tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • FunctionThis giant muscle protein may be involved in maintaining the structural integrity of sarcomeres and the membrane system associated with the myofibrils. Bind and stabilize F-actin.
    • Tissue specificityMuscle specific. Located in the thin filament of striated muscle.
    • Involvement in diseaseDefects in NEB are the cause of nemaline myopathy type 2 (NEM2) [MIM:256030]. A form of nemaline myopathy. Nemaline myopathies are muscular disorders characterized by muscle weakness of varying severity and onset, and abnormal thread-or rod-like structures in muscle fibers on histologic examination.
    • Sequence similaritiesContains 178 nebulin repeats.
      Contains 1 SH3 domain.
    • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > myofibril > sarcomere. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton.
