Technical Data
MOG (Myelin-oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein)
Myelin Oligodendrocyte Glycoprotein (MOG) is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily and is expressed exclusively in the central nervous system (CNS). MOG protein constitutes only 0.01-0.5% of the CNS myelin proteins, has mass of 27kD, and is located in the outermost layer of myelin sheath. Human MOG is able to induce autoantibody production and relapsing-remitting neurological disease causing extensive plaque-like demyelination. Autoantibody response to human MOG has been observed in induced experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) in C57/BL6 mice, Lewis and DA rats.

Suitable for use in Immunoprecipitation and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 0.5-2ug/ml
Immunoprecipitation: 3-5ug/extract from 10e7 cells
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
