Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab6320 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
IHC-Fr Use a concentration of 0.1 µg/ml. When using aldehyde-based fixative, use at a concentration of 5 µg/ml (see Abreview).

IP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration.

Target

  • FunctionRequired for brain and eye development. Promotes the disassembly of phosphorylated vimentin intermediate filaments (IF) during mitosis and may play a role in the trafficking and distribution of IF proteins and other cellular factors to daughter cells during progenitor cell division. Required for survival, renewal and mitogen-stimulated proliferation of neural progenitor cells.
  • Tissue specificityCNS stem cells.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the intermediate filament family.
  • Developmental stageUpon terminal neural differentiation, nestin is down-regulated and replaced by neurofilaments.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Constitutively phosphorylated. This increases during mitosis when the cytoplasmic intermediate filament network is reorganized.

  • Tumorigenicity of human glioma-derived cells. Representative immunohistochemical analysis of brain tumors generated after orthotropic injection of isolated human glioblastoma cells. Immunofluorescence of mouse brains cryosections labeled with anti-human nestin antibody. A, diffuse infiltration of the injected and contralateral hemisphere (GBM 1). B, cells infiltrating the striatum ipsilateral and contralateral to the side of injection (GBM 2). Scale bar, 100 µm. GBM xenografts recapitulate the morphology of corresponding tumors in human cancer patients.
    For xenograft tumor analysis, mice were sacrificed, and cryopreserved brain sections were cut using a 10-µm cryostat. Staining with hematoxylin-eosin identified sections bearing tumors. Briefly, brain sections were mounted on slides and stained with hematoxylin for 40 seconds and then counterstained with alcoholic eosin for 30 seconds. Cryosections containing tumors were permeabilized in PBS containing 0.5% Triton X-100 and

    Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/1000 in diluent) for 16 hours at 4°C. An HRP-conjugated goat anti-mouse polyclonal IgG was used as the secondary antibody.

Thank you very much for your call yesterday, and I apologize for the variation of results using this antibody.

As we discussed, I'm sending two free of charge vials to Cedarlane, who will then forward the replacement vials on to you.
