Target

  • FunctionProduces nitric oxide (NO) which is a messenger molecule with diverse functions throughout the body. In the brain and peripheral nervous system, NO displays many properties of a neurotransmitter. Probably has nitrosylase activity and mediates cysteine S-nitrosylation of cytoplasmic target proteins such SRR.
  • Tissue specificityIsoform 1 is ubiquitously expressed: detected in skeletal muscle and brain, also in testis, lung and kidney, and at low levels in heart, adrenal gland and retina. Not detected in the platelets. Isoform 3 is expressed only in testis. Isoform 4 is detected in testis, skeletal muscle, lung, and kidney, at low levels in the brain, but not in the heart and adrenal gland.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NOS family.
    Contains 1 FAD-binding FR-type domain.
    Contains 1 flavodoxin-like domain.
    Contains 1 PDZ (DHR) domain.
  • DomainThe PDZ domain in the N-terminal part of the neuronal isoform participates in protein-protein interaction, and is responsible for targeting nNos to synaptic membranes in muscles. Mediates interaction with VAC14.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Ubiquitinated; mediated by STUB1/CHIP in the presence of Hsp70 and Hsp40 (in vitro).
  • Cellular localizationCell membrane > sarcolemma. Cell projection > dendritic spine. In skeletal muscle, it is localized beneath the sarcolemma of fast-twitch muscle fiber by associating with the dystrophin glycoprotein complex. In neurons, enriched in dendritic spines.

Anti-nNOS (neuronal) antibody images

  • Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence analysis of nNOS (neuronal) (green) showing staining in the cytoplasm and membrane of U251 cells (right) compared to a negative control without primary antibody (left). Formalin-fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 5-10 minutes and blocked with 3% BSA-PBS for 30 minutes at room temperature. Cells were incubated with ab5586 in 3% BSA-PBS at a dilution of 1:100 and incubated overnight at 4ºC in a humidified chamber. Cells were washed with PBST and incubated with a DyLight-conjugated secondary antibody in PBS at room temperature in the dark. F-actin (red) was stained with a fluorescent red phalloidin and nuclei (blue) were stained with Hoechst or DAPI. Images were taken at a magnification of 60x.

  • ab5586 labelling nNOS (neuronal) in the cytoplasm of Mouse heart tissue (right) compared with a negative control (left) by Immunohistochemistry (formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections). To expose target proteins, antigen retrieval method was performed using 10mM sodium citrate (pH 6.0) microwaved for 8-15 min. Following antigen retrieval, tissues were blocked in 3% H2O2-methanol for 15 min at room temperature. Tissue sections were incubated with the primary antibody (1:20 in 3% BSA-PBS) overnight at 4°C. A HRP-conjugated anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody, followed by colorimetric detection using a DAB kit. Tissues were counterstained with hematoxylin and dehydrated with ethanol and xylene to prep for mounting.
