Specificity Specifically recognizes peripherin, showing no cross reactivity with other Class III intermediate filament proteins.
Cross-Reactivity (Details) Results on avian tissues are inconclusive.
Purification Whole antisera
Alternative Name Peripherin (PRPH Antibody Abstract)
Background Peripherin is a Class III intermediate filament subunit found in both the peripheral andcentral nervous systems, though it is concentrated, as its name suggests, in the neuronsof peripheral ganglia and their processes. Antibodies to peripherin can be used inidentifying, classifying, and studying neurons in the nervous system. Peripherin is alsoa good diagnostic marker for ballooned axons seen in Lou Gehrig's disease and someneuronally derived tumors. Peripherin is also a major component of the cytoskeleton ofPC12 cells, widely used model system for studies of neuronal differentiation.Autoantibodies to peripherin are frequently seen in the sera of patients with diabetes.Peripherin is not related to peripherin-RDS, a photoreceptor protein associated withretinal degeneration and blindness. Alternate Names: anti-NEF4 antibody, anti-neurofilament 4 antibody, anti-Peripherin Variant 61 antibody. Related Diseases: ALS, Diabetes
Gene Symbol: PRPH
Gene ID 5630
UniProt P21807
Research Area Neurology, Cytoskeleton
Application Notes This Peripherin antibody can be used for ELISA, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence and Western blotting. In WB a band can be seen at ~57 kDa. Success in IHC on mouse tissue has been reported in a customer review.
