Specifications

Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Serum IH
Myelin basic protein (MBP) is a single-chain, flexible polypeptide of about 18.5kD existing in its natural environment as an extrinsic and loosely bound component of the cytoplasmic portion of the myelin membrane sandwich. Ultrastructural immunocytochemistry with anti-myelin basic protein has shown that MBP is localized in the compact myelin sheath. MBP has not been demonstrated in rough endoplasmic reticulum, lysosomes or any other cytoplasmic organelles (3). MBP serves as a marker for oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells (3). MBP is also a marker for malignant schwannomas (4) and appears to play a significant role in the etiology of multiple sclerosis (57) and experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (8).
Catalog #M9758-04
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionImmunohistochemistry: 1:2000. Immunostains myelin basic protein of abnormal appearing oligodendrocytic processes and cell bodies in demyelinating areas. Recognizes only areas of myelin degeneration when tested in injured spinal cord and lesioned sciatic nerve. It also stains discrete white matter in brain of multiple system atrophy.
Optimal dilution determined by the researcher.
