Technical Data
nNOS (Neuronal Nitric Oxide Synthase)
Nitric oxide (NO) is a potent bio-regulatory molecule which plays important roles in the regulation of a variety of normal developmental and physiological processes. NO is generated by nitric oxide synthase (NOS) in a reaction which converts L-arginine and oxygen into citrulline and nitric oxide. Three distinct mammalian genes have been identified which encode NOS isoforms: neuronal (nNOS or bNOS), macrophage or inducible (iNOS) and endothelial (eNOS). The NOS isoforms can be subdivided into two general categories, constitutive or inducible, based on differences in their regulation and activities. The constitutive isoforms include eNOS and nNOS. Although the nomenclature of the NOS family members suggests restricted isoform expression patterns, the160kD neuronal-type NO synthase (nNOS) has been detected in a variety of cell types including neurons, epithelial cells, mesangial cells and skeletal muscle cells.

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

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot (Rat): 1ug/ml
ELISA: 0.1-1ug/ml
Immunoprecipitation (Rat): 7ug/each
Immunohistochemistry (Formalin- fixed paraffin): 2ug/ml. Tests using human, mouse and rat brain tissue sections yielded positive and specific cytoplasmic staining in neurons and astrocytes.
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
