General description

Antibodies to neuronal proteins have become critical tools for identifying neurons and discerning morphological characteristics in culture and complex tissue. While the labeling from classic histological techniques such as Golgi staining and modern molecular approaches such as GFP constructs yield excellent cytoarchitectural detail, these approaches are technically challenging and impractical for many neuroscience research needs. Neuron-specific antibodies are convenient precision tools useful in revealing cytoarchitecture, but are limited to the protein target distribution within the neuron, which may differ greatly from nucleus to soma to dendrite and axon. To achieve as complete a morphological staining as possible across all parts of neurons, Millipore has developed a monoclonal antibody blend that reacts against key somatic, nuclear, dendritic, and axonal proteins distributed across the pan-neuronal architecture that can then be detected by a single secondary antibody. This antibody cocktail has been validated in diverse fixations, cell culture and immunohistochemistry protocols, including archival brain tissue, giving researchers a convienent and specific qualitative and quantitative tool for studying neuronal morphology.


Reactivity with other species has not been determined.
Cat. # MAB2300 is specific to axons (neurites), dendrites, nucleus, and the cell body of neurons.
