Perform heat-mediated antigen retrieval using sodium citrate buffer (10 mM citrate pH 6.0 + 0.05% Tween-20)

Target

  • Function

    Required for brain and eye development. Promotes the disassembly of phosphorylated vimentin intermediate filaments (IF) during mitosis and may play a role in the trafficking and distribution of IF proteins and other cellular factors to daughter cells during progenitor cell division. Required for survival, renewal and mitogen-stimulated proliferation of neural progenitor cells.
  • Tissue specificity

    CNS stem cells.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the intermediate filament family.
  • Developmental stage

    Upon terminal neural differentiation, nestin is down-regulated and replaced by neurofilaments.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Constitutively phosphorylated. This increases during mitosis when the cytoplasmic intermediate filament network is reorganized.
