|Other Names||Nestin, NES|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP2020a was selected from the N-term region of human Nestin . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Required for brain and eye development. Promotes the disassembly of phosphorylated vimentin intermediate filaments (IF) during mitosis and may play a role in the trafficking and distribution of IF proteins and other cellular factors to daughter cells during progenitor cell division. Required for survival, renewal and mitogen-stimulated proliferation of neural progenitor cells (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||CNS stem cells.|

Nestin is a class VI intermediate filament protein expressed predominantly in stem cells of the neural tube but absent from virtually all differentiated CNS cells. In the CNS, nestin is downregulated upon differentiation and replaced by neurofilaments. Transient expression of nestin has been postulated as a key step committing cells to the neural differentiation pathway. Nestin expression has also been observed in pancreatic hematopoietic stem cell populations.
