I have a question regarding one of you anti-Nestin antibodies ( ab105389 ). On the website it lists this antibody as reacting with human, but doesn't provide any informatin regarding mouse. I looked at a number of other Nestin antibodies and some react with both mouse and human, and some are specific to one or the other (for example a mouse ab that lists as "doesn't react with human"). I was wondering if based on the antigen used for this antibody if it if would or wouldn't react with mouse.

Thank you for contacting us.
Unfortunately, alignments of the immunogen with mouse show very poor homology. As such, we cannot guarantee or recommend this product for use in this species. We do offer a number of other anti-Nestin antibodies of which nine are tested and guaranteed in mouse samples. In general, I would recommend Anti-Nestin antibody [2Q178] - Neural Stem Cell Marker (ab6142) as this product is extensively tested, published with and reviewed. However, I would be happy to help find the right product for you based on your needs.
