General description

Mouse monoclonal clone NCAM-0B11 anti-Neural Cell Adhesion Molecule antibody localizes the high molecular weight isoform of N-CAM (neural cell adhesion molecule) in human and several other mammalian species. The antibody shows a strong reaction to N-CAM A/N-CAM 180, however it also recognizes N-CAM B/N-CAM 140. In an immunoblot, the product reacts with polysialated N-CAM in embryonic material. Breakdown products of N-CAM may be stained; they appear as bands lower than 100 kD on the immunoblot.

Neural cell adhesion molecule (N-CAM), the best characterized CAM, exists in adult brain as a family of sialoglycoproteins of molecular weights 180 kDa, 140 kDa and 120 kDa, which arise from alternative splicing of mRNA transcribed from a single gene. N-CAMs are believed to be involved in cell-cell interactions and probably play an important role in embryogenesis and development. Immunocytochemical data indicate that in the adult, N-CAM is expressed mainly in cells of the nervous system. There are indications that N-CAM may be expressed by non-neural cells in the adult, as it has been found in studies of various embryonic developmental stages.

Application

Mouse monoclonal clone NCAM-0B11 anti-Neural Cell Adhesion Molecule antibody is used to tag neural cell adhesion molecule for detection and quantitation by immunocytochemical and immunohistochemical (IHC) techniques such as immunoblotting. It is used as a probe to determine the presence and roles of neural cell adhesion molecule in cell-cell interactions during embryogenesis and development.
