|Target/Specificity||Rabbit anti-Leumorphin antibody recognizes rat leumorphin, also known as dynorphin B29. Leumorphin is a 28 amino acid opioid peptide resulting from cleavage of proenkephalin-B. Leumorphin positive cells are found in the paraventricular, supraoptic nucleus and fibres in the lateral hypothalamus of colchicine treated rat brain (Neal & Newman 1989). Leumorphin has been reported to exert anti-apoptotic effects in rat PC12 pheochromocytoma cells (Leeet al.2005).Rabbit anti-leumorphin has been used successfully to detect leumorphin in murine brain using immunohistochemistry on cryostat sections.(Zhanget al.2005).|
