Technical Data
Nestin (ESTM46, FLJ21841, Intermediate Filament Protein, Nbla00170, Nes)
Nestin is a Class VI intermediate filament expressed in the developing central nervous system (CNS) in early embryonic neuroepithelial stem cells. This protein has been widely used as a predominant marker for stem / progenitor cells, glioma cells, and tumor endothelial cells. Furthermore, it is a superior angiogenic marker to evaluate neovascularity of endothelial cells in tumor
