  • Function
    Low affinity receptor which can bind to NGF, BDNF, NT-3, and NT-4. Can mediate cell survival as well as cell death of neural cells.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 death domain.
    Contains 4 TNFR-Cys repeats.
  • Domain
    Death domain is responsible for interaction with RANBP9.
    The extracellular domain is responsible for interaction with NTRK1.
  • Post-translational
    N- and O-glycosylated.
    O-linked glycans consist of Gal(1-3)GalNAc core elongated by 1 or 2 NeuNAc.
    Phosphorylated on serine residues.

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of murine uterus tissue with adenomyosis, staining p75 NGF Receptor with ab52987.

    Antigen retrieval was performed by heat mediation in citrate buffer (pH 6). Tissue was blocked with goat serum for 15 minutes before incubating with primary antibody (1/100) overnight at 4°C. A biotinylated goat anti-rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody and staining was detected using DAB.
  • ICC/IF image of ab52987 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1% BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1 hour to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab52987, 1 µg/mL) overnight at 4oC. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1 hour. Alexa Fluo® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1 hour. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.4 µM.

  • Anti-p75 NGF Receptor antibody [EP1039Y] (ab52987) at 1/50000 dilution + PC12 cell lysate at 10 µg

    goat anti-rabbit HRP labelled at 1/2000 dilution

    Predicted band size: 45 kDa
    Observed band size: 75 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)

  • Flow Cytometry analysis of PC-12 (rat adrenal gland pheochromocytoma) cells labeling p75 NGF Receptor with unpurified ab52987 at 1/60 dilution (10ug/mL) (red). Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilised with 90% methanol. A Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor®488) at 1/2000 dilution was used as the secondary antibody. Rabbit monoclonal IgG (Black) was used as the isotype control, cells without incubation with primary antibody and secondary antibody (Blue) was used as the unlabeled control.
