Target/Specificity Mouse anti-Rat Neurofilament 200 kDa antibody, clone RT97 recognizes the 200 kDa neurofilament protein in a range of species. Mouse anti-Rat Neurofilament 200 kDa antibody, clone RT97 stains various tumors including phaeochromocytoma, paraganglioma and ganglioneuroblastoma.Mouse anti-Rat Neurofilament 200k Da antibody, clone RT97 also recognizes a phosphorylation dependent epitope on fetal tau, Alzheimer's paired helical filament-tau and on microtubule associated protein 1B (MAP1B) by western blotting, however similar reactivity was not apparent in immunohistochemical studies (Johnstoneet al.1997).
Preservative & Stabilisers 0.09% Sodium Azide
Storage Store at +4℃ or at -20 ℃.
PrecautionsAnti-Rat Neurofilament 200kDa Antibody, clone RT97 is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
