    Recombinant Rat Peripherin purified from E. coli.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab4653 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
WB 1/5000. Detects a band of approximately 57 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 57 kDa).
IHC-Fr Use at an assay dependent concentration. ab4653 is relatively sensitive to aldehyde fixation and so is not recommended for heavily fixed formalin fixed sections of brain.
ICC/IF 1/500.

  • Predicted band size : 57 kDa
    Cytoskeletal homogenates of rat spinal cord were run out on a 7.5% SDS-PAGE gel and stained with Coomassie brilliant blue (lane 1). H, M, L and G indicate the positions of neurofilament NF-H, NF-M, NF-L and glial fibrillary acidic protein respectively. These proteins, as expressed in rat, have SDS-PAGE molecular weights of 200kDa, 145kDa, 68kDa and 50kDa respectively. The same material was run out on a single wide lane on an SDS-PAGE gel and transferred to nitrocellulose. Individual strips cut from this membrane were probed with monoclonal antibody to peripherin (lane 2, ab4653), or polyclonal antibody to peripherin (lane 3, ab4666). Vimentin, a protein related to peripherin in protein sequence and structure, is also found in these preparations since it is found in astrocytes and endothelial cells. Vimentin runs a little faster on SDS-PAGE gels, as revealed with an antibody to this protein (Lane 4).
  • Immunohistochemical analysis of rat dorsal root ganglia, staining Peripherin with ab4653.

    The DRGs from sham rats were cut to 30 μm and collected free floating in 0.1 m PBS. Sections were blocked with 5% blocking reagent for 1 hour at 25°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/100) and an Alexa Fluor®594-conjugated donkey anti-mouse IgG (1/400) was used as the secondary antibody.
