Technical Data
Nerve Growth Factor, beta (CT) (NGF, Beta Nerve Growth Factor, Beta Nerve Growth Factor Precursor, Beta NGF, HSAN5, Nerve Growth Factor beta, Nerve Growth Factor beta Polypeptide, Nerve Growth Factor beta Subunit, NGFB)
Nerve growth factor-beta (NGF-b) is a potent neurotrophic factor which supports the growth and survivability of nerve and/or glial cells. The active form of human beta-NGF is is a noncovalently disulfide-linked homodimer, formed by two 13.5kD polypeptide monomers (238 total amino acids). The three disulfide bonds are required for biological activity.

Suitable for use in Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry, and Immunocytochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilutions:
Western Blot: 1:500. Fetal thyroid cell lysate was resolved by electrophoresis, transferred to PVDF membrane and probed with N2050-06P. Proteins were visualized using a goat anti-rabbit secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and a chemiluminescence detection system.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin): 1:50-1:100. Detected NGF-beta in human brain tissue
Immunocytochemistry: 1:100-1:250
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
