• Product name
  • Description
    Rabbit polyclonal to NGF
  • Host species
  • Specificity
    Less than 1% cross-reactivity against recombinant human Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor, Neurotrophin 3 and Neurotrophin 4/5 by ELISA. This NGF antibody detects a band of approximate molecular weight of 13KDa under denaturing conditions. This corresponds the monomer of beta NGF (as it exists as a dimer in the native state).
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: Dot blot, ELISA, IHC-Fr, Neutralising, WB, IHC-Pmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Rat, Chicken, Human
    Does not react with: Cow
  • Immunogen

    Native mouse salivary gland NGF purified by modification of the method of Mobley et al (1976). Antigen purity was greater than 95% by PAGE.

  • General notes
    This antibody has been shown to be useful for a variety of techniques and its specificity has been demonstrated by immunoblot.



Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab6198 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Function
    Nerve growth factor is important for the development and maintenance of the sympathetic and sensory nervous systems. Extracellular ligand for the NTRK1 and NGFR receptors, activates cellular signaling cascades through those receptor tyrosine kinase to regulate neuronal proliferation, differentiation and survival. Inhibits metalloproteinase dependent proteolysis of platelet glycoprotein VI (PubMed:20164177).
  • Involvement in disease
    Neuropathy, hereditary sensory and autonomic, 5
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the NGF-beta family.

  • ab6198 at 1/1000 staining perfusion fixed rat brain tissue sections by IHC-Fr. The animals were pre-perfused with Tris buffer pH 10, followed by 4% paraformadehyde and 15% of a saturated solution of picric acid. The brains were post-fixed in the same fixative overnight, cryoprotected in 20% sucrose for 24 hours, frozen and cut with a cryostat. Free floating immunostaining was performed. An Alexa-Fluor ® 488 conjugated goat anti-rabbit antibody was used as the secondary.

    The image shows the staining obtained with this antibody using direct fluorescence in rat cortical neurons, with two different magnifications of acquisition (X10 and X20).
