Description

Immunogen

Galactocerebrosides (GalC) I and II conjugated to KLH

Specificity

The antibody localizes oligodendroglia in cultured cells. It may be used for studying changes in the organization of oligodendroglial membrane sheets in culture. Specificity of the product is determined by dot blotting using galactocerebroside as the antigen.

Application

Anti-Galactocerebroside antibody produced in rabbit is suitable:
• for dot-blot immunoassay and western blot analysis of mouse brain homogenates.
• as a primary antibody at a working dilution of 1:50 for immunostaining of muscle tissue of Rana pipiens frogs
• as a primary antibody at a working dilution of 1:500 in immunofluorescence and immunohistochemistry using primary human astroglia
The antibody is useful for labeling myelin sheaths, oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells and for staining cultured cells, cell suspensions, frozen tissue sections and perfusion-fixed tissues. It is suitable for dot blot immunoassay at a working dilution of 1:50 using galactocerebroside type I and II.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Galactocerebroside is the major galactosphingolipid of myelin. It is expressed in the CNS in cell membranes of oligodendrocytes. It is also expressed in Schwann cells in peripheral nerves. Galactocerebroside is found in serum and cerebral spinal fluid of patients with demyelinating diseases like multiple sclerosis.
