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.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Westerm Blot: 1:1000-1:5000. Doublet band seen ~220-240kD.
Immnohistochemistry: Paraffin and Frozen
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile 40-50% glycerol, aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
