The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 186 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 186 kDa).
RelevanceNfasc186 (Neurofascin 186) is one of two alternatively spliced products of the Neurofascin (Nfasc) gene in rat; the other being Nfasc155. The establishment of paranodal axoglial junctions in myelinated nerves where voltage-gated sodium channels are concentrated at the nodes of Ranvier is determined by myelin-forming glia. The two isoforms of Neurofascin, Nfasc186 in neurons and Nfasc155 in glia, are required for the assembly of these specialized domains. These two major Neurofascins play essential roles in assembling the nodal and paranodal domains of myelinated axons and are essential for the transition to saltatory conduction in developing vertebrate nerves. Nfasc186 (Isoform 1) is expressed at the Nodes of Ranvier while the Nfasc155 (isoforms 2 and 3) are expressed in unmyelinated axons.

Immunohistochemistical detection of Nfasc186 using antibody ab31719 on PFA perfusion-fixed rat brain sections. Primary antibody was diluted at 1/300 and incubated for 18 hours @ 20°C in PBS + 0.3 % Triton X100. Secondary antibody: goat anti-rabbit Alexa Fluor 488® diluted (1/1000). Immunostaining observed (image) in the rat cortex. IHC was performed on free-floating sections using direct fluorescence. The antibody produced some staining in the whole CNS.
