Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab16379 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Blocking - Blocking peptide for Anti-GAP43 antibody - Neuronal Marker (ab16053)
ab16379 is the immunising peptide for Rabbit polyclonal to GAP-43 (ab16053) and can be used for blocking antibody binding in WB and IHC applications.
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions.
- If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer.
- Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent.
- Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised.
- Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

- B 50
FunctionThis protein is associated with nerve growth. It is a major component of the motile "growth cones" that form the tips of elongating axons.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the neuromodulin family.
Contains 1 IQ domain.
modificationsPhosphorylation of this protein by a protein kinase C is specifically correlated with certain forms of synaptic plasticity.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Cell projection > growth cone membrane. Cell junction > synapse. Cytoplasmic surface of growth cone and synaptic plasma membranes.
