Mouse monoclonal antibody against NEUROD1: 7000PU
Mouse monoclonal antibody against NEUROD1 (Neurogenic differentiation factor 1) also known as BETA2 (Beta-Cell E-Box Transactivator 2), BHF-1, MODY6, bHLHa3 is a class A basic helix loop helix transcription factor.
Product Number: 7000PU
Concentration: 0.5 mg/ml.
Storage Buffer: Phosphate buffered saline, pH 7.2 with 0.05% sodium azide.
Clone: BC18-1.11EG (abbreviated 1.11EG)
Immunogen: Recombinant NeuroD1 protein
Isotype: Mouse IgG1, Kappa
Reactivity: The antibody was tested against several human cancer cell lines, cryosections of human skeletal muscle tissues, mouse cell lines and pancreatic tissue. Not tested in other species.
Applications: Indirect immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry & western blotting. The antibody reacts by ELISA against recombinant protein but not tested against the authentic protein. Not tested for use in immunoprecipitation. Suggested starting concentrations are as follows; Western blotting 1 -2ug/ml, immunohistochemistry 2-5ug/ml. The 1.11EG antibody may be used on cryosections, tissue culture cells grown on chamber slides or attached on adhesion slides. Not tested on formalin fixed paraffin embedded (FFPE) tissue sections. Cultured cells and cryosections should be fixed in 1-2% paraformaldehyde for 30 mins, permeabilized in 0.25% Triton X 100 in PBS for 30 mins and non-specific antibody binding blocked with 1% BSA in PBS. The primary antibody may be used at 3-5ug/ml in 1%BSA in PBS.
Preparation and Storage: The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant using Protein G Sepharose columns. Store undiluted at 4° C or aliquot and store at -20C for long term storage. Repeated freeze thaw cycles should be avoided.
Suggested Positive control cell lines: SKNSH, Kelly, 1382.2, SHSY5Y, IMR32, 1691 neuroblastoma cells, RDES, SKES-1, SJSA Ewings sarcoma cells and SKPNDW and PFSK1 primitive neuroectodermal cells are suggested as positive control cell lines. The antibody has also reacted positively against Min 6 insulinoma cells and Neuro2A mouse cells and beta islet cells in mouse pancrease.
- Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
- Caution: The product contains 0.05% sodium azide. Sodium azide produces highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. It is therefore recommended to dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to prevent the accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in the plumbing.
The NEUROD1 gene encodes a member of the NeuroD family of basic-loop-helix transcription factors. The NEUROD 1 was first described by Lee et al (1995) who observed that the gene was transiently expressed in subsets of neuronal cells of the central and peripheral nervous system at the time of their terminal differentiation into mature neurons. They also showed that ectopic expression of the NEUROD1 gene could convert non-neuronal cells to neuronal cells. The NEUROD1 protein forms heterodimers with other bHLH proteins and activates the transcription of a large set of genes that contain the E-box DNA sequence 5’-CANNTG’-3. NEUROD1 is involved in the regulation of several cell differentiation pathways including the development of retinal ganglion cell, inner ear sensory neurons, and endocrine islet cells. NeuroD1 regulates the expression of numerous genes including the insulin gene. Mutations in the NEUROD1 gene has been associated with type II diabetes mellitus. Defects in expression of NEUROD1 is linked with Maturity onset diabetes of the young type 6 (MODY6). The NEUROD1 protein may be localized in the cytoplasm and the nucleus. In Min 6 insulinoma cells Petersen et al (2002) were able to conclude that MEK-ERK associated phosphorylation of the serine 274 on NEUROD1 induces the translocation of the protein to the nucleus and that this may normally be associated with cell glucose concentration.
