NT3 Antibody

Affinity purified polyclonal antibody

  • WB - NT3 Antibody AG1184-050
    Western blot analysis using Anti-NT-3 antibody (1:1000) (1-4) or anti-NT-3 antibody, preincubated with the control antigen peptide (5): 1. hNT-3 (#N-260), 10 ng
    2. hß-NGF (#N-245), 100 ng
    3. hNT-4 (#N-260), 100 ng
    4. hNT-3 (#N-260), 10 ng
    5. Control peptide
  • IHC - NT3 Antibody AG1184-050
    Expression of NT-3 in mouse spinal cord Immunohistochemical staining of mouse spinal cord using Anti-NT-3 antibody (#AG1184). The spinal ventral horn was stained diffusely with some extensions (arrows) into the white matter (WM).  In the WM there were NT-3 immunoreactive cells that were probably glia (triangles).

The neurotrophins ("neuro" means nerve and "trophe" means nutrient) are a family of soluble, basic growth factors which regulate neuronal development, maintenance, survival and death in the CNS and the PNS.1 The structural hallmark of all the neurotrophins is the characteristic arrangement of the disulfide bridges known as the cysteine knot, which has been found in other growth factors such as PDGF.2 The rat and human forms of Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) are 96% homologous.   NT-3 has been shown to strengthen synaptic connections to motoneurons in the neonatal rat,3 to serve as an anti-inflammatory factor, to suppress microglial activation,4 to play a critical role in regulating T helper 1/T helper 2 cell balance5 and to modify potassium currents in isolated inner hair cells from guinea pig cochlea.6 The biological effects of NT-3 are mediated by two receptors: TrkC, which is specific for NT-3, and p75NTR, which binds all the neurotrophins.7
