Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E IH
PMP-22 (Peripheral Myelin Protein) is a glycoprotein expressed in the compact myelin of the peripheral nervous system. In the peripheral nervous system, PMP-22 is produced by myelinating Schwann cells and is coexpressed with the genes for myelin basic protein (MBP) and protein P0 during nerve development and regeneration. However, Schwannoma cells not associated with peripheral nerve will be negative. Alterations in the level of this protein cause several genetic human diseases. If the protein is duplicated, patients develop Charcot- Marie-Tooth disease. If one copy of the gene is deleted, they suffer from the inherited tendency to pressure palsies. PMP-22 has recently been reported in high-grade osteosarcoma.
Catalog #P4305-03
ApplicationsSuitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
Recommended DilutionsImmunohistochemistry: (Formalin/paraffin): 1:12.5-1:25 for 60 min. Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10-20 min followed by cooling at RT for 20 min.
Positive ControlPeripheral nerve, pancreatic islets.
