|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||Q49AH0, 441549|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||20964 Da|
|Application Notes||CDNF antibody can be used for detection of CDNF by Western blot at 2 - 4 μg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2.5 μg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 μg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||CDNF antibody was raised against a 9 amino acid synthetic peptide from near the carboxy terminus of human CDNF.|
The immunogen is located within the last 50 amino acids of CDNF.
|Reconstitution & Storage||CDNF antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||CDNF Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Trophic factor for dopamine neurons. Prevents the 6- hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-induced degeneration of dopaminergic neurons. When administered after 6-OHDA-lesioning, restores the dopaminergic function and prevents the degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in substantia nigra (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed in neuronal and non-neuronal tissues. In the brain, highest levels in the optic nerve and corpus callosum.|

CDNF Antibody: The conserved dopamine neurotrophic factor (CDNF) is a neurotrophic factor for dopaminergic neurons and highly homologous to the mesencephalic-astrocyte-derived neuro-trophic factor. Somewhat surprisingly, CDCF is expressed at higher levels in tissues such as heart, skeletal muscle and testes than in brain. Similar to the glial cell line-derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), CDNF can prevent the 6-hydroxylamine (6-OHDA)-induced degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in a rat model of Parkinson's disease. Furthermore, CDNF was able to restore the dopaminergic function and prevent the degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in the substantia nigra, suggesting that CDNF might be suitable for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. At least two isoforms of CDNF are known to exist.
