Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab69989 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
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
IHC-P Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 0.5 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 67 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 67 kDa).


  • FunctionMay be involved in the regulation of cell-cell interactions or in synatogenesis during the maturation of the nervous system.
    NERP peptides are involved in the control of body fluid homeostasis by regulating vasopressin release.
  • Tissue specificityCentral and peripheral nervous systems, synthesized exclusively in neuronal and neuroendocrine cells.
  • Post-translational
    Multiple peptides are derived from VGF, with activities in synaptic plasticity, antidepression, penile erection, autonomic activation, and increases in energy expenditure.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted. Cytoplasmic vesicle > secretory vesicle. Stored in secretory vesicles and then secreted, NERP peptides colocalize with vasopressin in the storage granules of hypothalamus.

  • ab69989 at 5 µg/ml staining VGF in human brain tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/ PFA fixed paraffin-embedded sections).

  • ICC/IF image of ab69989 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 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab69989, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
