Peripherin (PRPH, Neurofilament 4, NEF4)
Description:
Peripherin is a type III intermediate filament found initially in sensory neurons of the peripheral nervous system (PNS). It serves as a marker for autonomic and sensory neurons in the PNS and motor neurons in the CNS. Peripherin is a diagnostic marker in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and certain neuronally-derived tumors. Brain injuries can also trigger expression of peripherin and the formation of peripherin accumulations in neurons that are normally silent for this gene. Peripherin is also expressed in certain neuroendocrine tumors and in the insulin producing cells of the pancreas. Autoantibodies to peripherin are also frequently seen in the sera of patients with diabetes.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Immunohistochemistry: 1:50-1:100
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.
