Technical Data
Nephrin Related Protein 1 (NEPH1)
Nephrin is encoded by NPHS1 gene (chromosome 19q13.1), the core protein of the interpodocytes slit diaphragm of kidney glomerulus, these podocytes are highly differentiated with characteristic interdigitating foot processes covering the outer glomerular basement membrane, the space between these foot processes is spanned by a tight junction to provide the large surface area for filtration. The mutated NPHS1 gene in congenital nephrotic syndrome of Finnish type, a human disease that leads to massive proteinuria in utero and nephrosis at birth. Nephrin is a transmembrane protein of immunoglobulin super family with 8 Ig like domains, identified in human (1241aa), rat (1252aa), and mouse (1256aa).

Suitable for use in ELISA, Western Blot. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
ELISA: 0.5-1ug/ml; Control peptide can be used to coat ELISA plates at 1ug/ml. See N2028-62A.
Western Blot (ECL): 1-10ug/ml.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Control Peptide:
