  • General notes


    ab81462 is very useful for immunostaining of mouse embryonic brain. It has very low background in immunostaining using mouse tissues and is also useful for doubleb staining with mouse and rabbit antibodies.

Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab81462 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 at an assay dependent dilution.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent dilution.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for WB.
  • Target

    • Function
      Required 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 specificity
      CNS stem cells.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
    • Developmental stage
      Upon 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.
