Nestin Antibody Description

Background
Nestin, is a large intermediate filament protein (class Type VI) that was first identified with a monoclonal antibody by Hockfield and McKay (1985).  Nestin is expressed predominantly in stem cells of the central nervous system in the neural tube.  Nestin is expressed during development and in myotendinous and neuromuscular junctions. Nestin expression is restricted, typically disappearing by E18. Nestin is thought to be a reasonable neuronal marker; however, recent studies have found nestin expression in other cell types such as endothelial cells.  Nestin expression is seen in almost all GBMs (Glioblastoma mulitformes) and many melanomas (both primary and metastatic) but not in any metastatic carcinomas.  Upon terminal neural differentiation, nestin is downregulated and replaced by neurofilaments.
Synonyms
nestin, ESTM 46 antibody, FLJ 21841 antibody, FLJ21841 antibody, Intermediate filament protein antibody
Immunogen
Anti-Nestin affinity purified antibody was prepared from whole rabbit serum produced by repeated immunizations with a recombinant protein corresponding to amino acids 1484-1500 of human Nestin protein.
Immunogen Type
Recombinant Protein
Storage Condition
Store anti-Nestin at -20° C prior to opening. Aliquot contents and freeze at -20° C or below for extended storage. Avoid cycles of freezing and thawing. Centrifuge product if not completely clear after standing at room temperature. This product is stable for several weeks at 4° C as an undiluted liquid. Dilute only prior to immediate use.
Application Note
Affinity purified Anti-Nestin has been tested for use in ELISA, Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and western blot.  Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user. Expect a band approximately 200-220 kDa in size corresponding to Nestin protein by western blotting in the appropriate cell lysate or extract.
Purity/Specifity
Nestin antibody is directed against human Nestin protein. The product was affinity purified from monospecific antiserum by immunoaffinity purification.  A BLAST analysis was used to suggest cross reactivity with Nestin protein from human and macaque (100% homology).  Based on protein sequence homology also expect partial reactivity against Nestin homologues from rabbit (94%), mouse (reactivity shown above), rat and hamster (88%), and bovine and dog (82%).  Reactivity against homologues from other sources is not known.
