ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.
Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Clone 2N6 is a ZooMAb rabbit recombinant monoclonal antibody that specifically detects Myelin Basic Protein (MBP). It targets an epitope within 19 amino acids from the C-terminal half.
KLH-conjugated linear peptide corresponding to 19 amino acids from the C-terminal half of human Myelin Basic Protein.
Anti-MBP, clone 2N6 ZooMAb, Cat. No. ZRB1219, is a highly specific recombinant rabbit monoclonal antibody that detects Myelin basic protein and has been tested for use in Immunocytochemistry, Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin), and Western Blotting.
Western Blotting Analysis: A 1:1,000 dilution from a representative lot detected MBP in mouse and rat brain tissue lysate.
Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A 1:10 dilution from a representative lot detected MBP in Rat Glial precursor cells.
Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected MBP in human brain and mouse brain tissue sections.
Note: Actual optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user as specimens and experimental conditions may vary.
Myelin basic protein (UniProt: P02686; also known as MBP, Myelin A1 protein, Myelin membrane encephalitogenic protein) is encoded by the MBP gene (Gene ID: 4155) in human. MBP is a homodimeric protein that is found in both the central and the peripheral nervous system. It is one of the most abundant protein components of the myelin membrane in the CNS and plays a role in both the formation and stabilization of this myelin membrane. It is responsible for adhesion of the cytosolic surfaces of multi-layered compact myelin. MBP can interact with many polyanionic proteins including actin, tubulin, calmodulin, and clathrin, and with negatively charged lipids. MBP isoforms are found in both the central and the peripheral nervous system, whereas Golli-MBP isoforms are expressed in fetal thymus, spleen and spinal cord, as well as in cell lines derived from the immune system. MBP is a major constituent of the myelin sheath of oligodendrocytes and Schwann cells in the nervous system. MBP expression begins abruptly in 14-16-week-old fetuses. Even smaller isoforms seem to be produced during embryogenesis; some of these persisting in the adult. The reduction in the surface charge of citrullinated and/or methylated MBP could result in a weakened attachment to the myelin membrane that can lead to demyelinating diseases such as chronical multiple sclerosis (MS), and fulminating Marburg disease. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
