  • Target

    • Function

      Developmental neurite growth regulatory factor with a role as a negative regulator of axon-axon adhesion and growth, and as a facilitator of neurite branching. Regulates neurite fasciculation, branching and extension in the developing nervous system. Involved in down-regulation of growth, stabilization of wiring and restriction of plasticity in the adult CNS. Regulates the radial migration of cortical neurons via an RTN4R-LINGO1 containing receptor complex (By similarity). Isoform 2 reduces the anti-apoptotic activity of Bcl-xl and Bcl-2. This is likely consecutive to their change in subcellular location, from the mitochondria to the endoplasmic reticulum, after binding and sequestration. Isoform 2 and isoform 3 inhibit BACE1 activity and amyloid precursor protein processing.
    • Tissue specificity

      Isoform 1 is specifically expressed in brain and testis and weakly in heart and skeletal muscle. Isoform 2 is widely expressed except for the liver. Isoform 3 is expressed in brain, skeletal muscle and adipocytes. Isoform 4 is testis-specific.
    • Sequence similarities

      Contains 1 reticulon domain.
    • Domain

      Three regions, residues 59-172, 544-725 and the loop 66 amino acids, between the two transmembrane domains, known as Nogo-66 loop, appear to be responsible for the inhibitory effect on neurite outgrowth and the spreading of neurons. This Nogo-66 loop, mediates also the binding of RTN4 to its receptor.
    • Cellular localization

      Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Anchored to the membrane of the endoplasmic reticulum through 2 putative transmembrane domains.

    Thank you for contacting us yesterday to discuss the comments your reviewer had made.

    I have had a look into your enquiry and have come up with the following information:

    Nogo A is a potent neurite outgrowth inhibitor and plays a role both in the restriction of axonal regeneration after injury and in structural plasticity in the CNS of higher vertebrates.

    From the studies below, it seems that it is expressed in the oligodendrocytes and neurons

    Gil et al. J. Neuropathol. Exp. Neurol., 2006, 65(4), 433

    Wang et al. J. Neurosci., 2002, 22(12), 5505

    It seems that Nogo A shows an inhibitory effect on axonal regeneration when expressed in Schwann cells. It seems that Nogo A is not usually expressed in these cells:

    Pot et al. J. Cell Bio. Oct 14;159(1):29-35

    I'm afraid I still don't really understand why the reviewer has asked for this staining to be performed. Maybe you could go back to ask for further clarification from them?

    I hope this information has been of some help. If I can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to ask.

    Dear Dominique
    We have an answer to your inquiry:

    Thank you for contacting Abcam. 

    It appears as if you may have recognized an isoform of Nogo. The immunogen sequence used corresponds to aa117601192 of Nogo A. However, this sequence is also present in each of the four known isoforms of Nogo. Would you be able to send me an image of you Western blot? 

    I look forward to your response. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Your original inquiry to Abcam:










    I have a question about an antibody. I have used NogoA ab65800 antibody to do a western blot with rat brain lysate. I saw a band at about 58kDa. I block for one hour in 5% milk TBST, incubate in primary overnight, and incubate in secondary for one hour at room temperature. It was developed by ECL. The predicted size is listed as 130kDa and is shown with a rat brain lysate around here. What would you recommend? Can this antibody be replaced with another NogoA antibody (ab62024)?

    Thank you for that additional information. This has helped clarify the issues that you have been experiencing.

    I am sorry that this antibody has not worked as it should have. The image that you have provided us shows definitively that this is a random stain and not a Nogo isoform. I would like to replace the product with ab62024 as you have asked but will need to confirm the original purchase information with you.

    Could you please send me the order number or PO number with which the original product was purchased. After I recieve this information I will process a free of charge replacement for you.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.
