Myelin Basic Protein (MBP, Myelin A1 Protein, Myelin Membrane Encephalitogenic Protein, MGC99675) (HRP)
Description:
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. MBP serves as a marker for oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells. MBP is also a marker for malignant schwannomas and appears to play a significant role in the etiology of multiple sclerosis and experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 1:10,000
Western Blot: 1:1000-1:5000
Immunohistochemistry: 1:500
Optimal dilution determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4░C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20░C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.áLabeled with horseradish peroxidase (HRP). Sodium azide is a potent inhibitor of peroxidase and should not be added to HRP conjugates. HRP conjugates are sensitive to light.
