Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B
Pigment epithelium-derived factor (PEDF) was first identified as a 50kD secreted protein in conditioned medium from cultured fetal human retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells. More recently, PEDF was shown to have neurotrophic activity in the retina in vivo. PEDF is also a neurotrophic and neuroprotective factor in other systems, including cultured cerebellar granule cells, primary hippocampal neurons, spinal cord motor neurons and amphibian photoreceptors cultured in the absence of RPE cells. The binding of PEDF to retinoblastoma and cerebellar granule cells may be receptor-mediated. PEDF has been shown to be a potent inhibitor of angiogenesis in endothelial cell cultures and in rat cornea and retina in vivo.
Catalog #P3140
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsWestern Blot: 0.5-2ug/ml detects PEDF in 40ug of RIPA lysates from Y79 cells. 40ug of Y79 cell lysate was resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose and probed with P3140. Proteins were visualized using an IgG (HRP) goat anti-rabbit and a chemiluminescence detection system. Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Recommended Secondary AntibodiesI1904-39: IgG, X-Adsorbed (HRP) Pab Gt x Rb
I1904-40A: IgG, H&L, X-Adsorbed (HRP) Pab Gt x Rb
I1904-46Q: IgG, H&L (HRP) Pab Gt x Rb
