This antibody was obtained by immunization of the host with KLH conjugated synthetic peptide derived from human Noelin
Store this antibody in aqueous buffered solution containing 1% BSA, 50% glycerol and 0.09% sodium azide. Keep refrigerated at 2 to 8 degrees Celcius for up to one year.
For facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.Alexa Fluor 488 has the same range to that of fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC), yet the Anti-Noelin has a very high photo stability. As a result of this photo stability, it has turned into an antibody for fluorescent microscopy and FACS FLOW cytometry. It is distinguished in the FL1 of a FACS-Calibur or FACScan. Also Alexa Fluor 488 is pH stable.If you buy Antibodies supplied by Bioss Primary Conjugated Antibodies. ALEXA FLUOR they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
Background of the antigen
The Olfactomedin family comprises a diverse group of secreted glycoproteins, which includes OLFM1 (Noelin-1), OLFM2 (Noelin-2), OLFM3 (Noelin-3), OLFM4 (Noelin-4), tiarin, pancortin, gliomedin and mycocilin. These proteins are implicated in the development of the nervous system. Specifically, OLFM1 and OLFM2 expression is observed in the neural plate and neural crest, as well as in the cranial ganglia in mouse at E8-10, and later in brain tissue and in the zone of polarizing activity in the limb. Overexpression of OLFM1 causes an excess of neural crest emigrations and prolonged neural crest production. OLFM2 participates in the regulation of the development of the anterior nervous system. An Arg144Gln mutation in OLFM2 has been implicated as a possible cause for open-angle glaucoma (OAG).
