Nephrin (NPHN, CNF, Nephrosis 1 Congenital Finnish Type, NPHS1, Renal Glomerulus-specific Cell Adhesion Receptor)
Description:
Nephrin was first described as a kidney podocyte marker protein with a MW of 135kD calculated from amino acid sequence data and an apparent Mr 185kD after SDS-PAGE. Nephrin is a transmembrane cell adhesion molecule located at the slit diaphragm.

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

Recommended Dilutions:
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 1:50 Microwave antigen retreval required.
Immunofluorescence: Frozen tissue
Western Blot: 1:500; 1 hr at RT or overnight at 4C
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
