DescriptionMouse monoclonal [M221] to eNOS
Specificityab76198 is not predicted to react with other NOS family members due to low homology.
Tested applicationsSuitable for: IHC-P, ICC/IF, Flow Cyt, WB, ELISAmore details
Species reactivityReacts with: Mouse, Rat, Human
Recombinant fragment of mouse eNOS protein that included amino acid residues in the C terminal region.
- Human umbilical vein endothelial cells untreated and treated with lambda phosphatase. Mouse placenta lysate. Huvec lysate. IHC-P: FFPE human normal placenta tissue sections.
This antibody detects eNOS in mouse and rat but at a lower intensity than in human. If you are working in mouse or rat, we would recommend using no more than 1% milk as the blocking agent for optimal signal strength.

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab76198 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|IHC-P||1/1000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.|
|ICC/IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|Flow Cyt||Use 2µg for 106 cells.
ab170190 - Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
|WB||1/500 - 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 133 kDa.|
FunctionProduces nitric oxide (NO) which is implicated in vascular smooth muscle relaxation through a cGMP-mediated signal transduction pathway. NO mediates vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)-induced angiogenesis in coronary vessels and promotes blood clotting through the activation of platelets.
Isoform eNOS13C: Lacks eNOS activity, dominant-negative form that may down-regulate eNOS activity by forming heterodimers with isoform 1.
Tissue specificityPlatelets, placenta, liver and kidney.
Involvement in diseaseVariation in NOS3 seem to be associated with susceptibility to coronary spasm.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NOS family.
Contains 1 FAD-binding FR-type domain.
Contains 1 flavodoxin-like domain.
modificationsPhosphorylation by AMPK at Ser-1177 in the presence of Ca(2+)-calmodulin (CaM) activates activity. In absence of Ca(2+)-calmodulin, AMPK also phosphorylates Thr-495, resulting in inhibition of activity (By similarity). Phosphorylation of Ser-114 by CDK5 reduces activity.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Membrane, caveola. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Golgi apparatus. Specifically associates with actin cytoskeleton in the G2 phase of the cell cycle and which is favored by interaction with NOSIP and results in a reduced enzymatic activity.

This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using Licor blocking buffer before being incubated with ab76198 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using Goat anti Mouse IR680 at a 1:10,000 dilution for 1hr at room temperature and then imaged using the Licor Odyssey CLx.
IHC image of eNOS staining in human normal placenta*, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab76198, 1/1000 dilution, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.
For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

ab76198 staining eNOS in human umbilical vein endothelial cells. Cells with fixed with paraformaldehyde.
Overlay histogram showing HEK293 cells stained with ab76198 (red line). The cells were fixed with methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab76198, 2µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a slightly decreased signal in HEK293 cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min)/permeabilized in 0.1% PBS-Tween used under the same conditions.
