Clone Host Grade Applications
Monoclonal Mouse Affinity Purified B IH IC
Vertebrate neuron-specific nuclear protein called NeuN (Neuronal Nuclei) is an excellent marker for neurons in primary cultures and in retinoic acid-stimulated P19 cells. It is also useful for identifying neurons in transplants.
Catalog #N2173-20
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Immunohistochemistry, Western Blot and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsImmunohistochemistry: 1:100; Works best on polyester wax embedded tissue but also works on paraffin embedded tissue at a lower working dilution. Works well with formaldehyde- based fixatives. Citric acid and microwave pretreatment has been used successfully. Staining is primarily in the nucleus of the neurons with lighter staining in the cytoplasm. Developmentally, immunoreactivity is first observed shortly after neurons have become postmitotic, no staining has been observed in proliferative zones.
Western Blot: Recognizes 2-3 bands in the 46-48kD range and possibly another band at ~66kD.
Immunocytochemistry: 1:10-1:500 dilution with buffer without excess protein blocks or detergents. Neurons in culture should be permeabilized with 0.1% triton X-100.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Recommended ControlBrain tissue, most neuronal cell types throughout the adult nervous system
