General description

Nerve growth factor (NGF) belongs to the family of neurotrophic factors. It is located at 1p13.2 on the human chromosome. There are two molecular forms of NGF, 7S NGF and 2.5S NGF, that have identical neurotrophic effect on neurons.


May be used in monitoring for NGF (2.5S, β and 7S).


NGF-2.5S from male mouse submaxillary glands.


Anti-Nerve Growth Factor 2.5S antibody may be used for immunoblotting and dot blot at a minimum antibody working dilution of 1:2000. Antibody dilution of 1:1000 was used for immunoblotting using extracts of nucleus raphe magus tissue of rats. The antibody was used for immunofluorescence of mouse astrocytes and for neutralization assays.
Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
Immunofluorescence (1 paper)
Western Blotting (1 paper)

Biochem/physiol Actions

  1. How does the storage temperature relate to shipping conditions?

    The storage conditions that a Sigma-Aldrich catalog and label recommend for products are deliberately conservative. For many products, long-term storage at low temperatures will increase the time during which they are expected to remain in specification and therefore are labeled accordingly. Where short-term storage, shipping time frame, or exposure to conditions other than those recommended for long-term storage will not affect product quality, Sigma-Aldrich will ship at ambient temperature. The products sensitive to short-term exposure to conditions other than their recommended long-term storage are shipped on wet or dry ice. Ambient temperature shipping helps to control shipping costs for our customers. At any time, our customers can request wet- or dry-ice shipment, but the special handling is at customer expense if our product history indicates that the product is stable for regular shipment. See Shipping and Storage for more information.

  2. Which document(s) contains shelf-life or expiration date information for a given product?

    If available for a given product, the recommended re-test date or the expiration date can be found on the Certificate of Analysis.

  3. How do I get lot-specific information or a Certificate of Analysis?

    The lot specific COA document can be found by entering the lot number above under the "Documents" section.

Previous studies demonstrated that interleukin-1β (IL-1β) and nerve growth factor (NGF) increase synthesis of substance P (SP) in airway neurons both after ozone (O3) exposure and by direct application. It was postulated that NGF mediates O3-induced IL-1β effects on SP....
