SMI-99_A647_MBP_Antibody_1_070919
IHC staining of Alexa Fluor® 647 anti-Myelin Basic Protein (clone SMI 99) on formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded rat cerebellum tissue. Following antigen retrieval using Sodium Citrate H.I.E.R., the tissue was incubated with 2 µg/ml of the primary antibody overnight at 4°C. The slide was mounted with Fluoromount-G™, with DAPI. The image was captured with a 10X objective. Scale Bar: 100 µm

Description

Myelin basic protein (MBP) is a protein involved in the myelination of nerves in the CNS. MBP functions to maintain the correct structure of myelin, through its interaction with the lipids in the myelin membrane. The myelin sheath is made up of MBP and lipids, and acts as an insulator to increase the velocity of axonal impulse conduction. MBP plays a central role in the demyelinating disease multiple sclerosis (MS). A hallmark of the disease is the loss of the myelin sheath surrounding nerves, thought to be induced by antibodies against MBP.

Application Notes

This antibody reacts with the sequence Ala-Ser-Asp-Tyr-Lys-Ser in position 131-136 of the classic human myelin basic protein. The antibody detects myelin basic protein from most mammalian species. This antibody detects developing and adult myelin, developing oligodedrocytes and distinguishes oligodendrocytes from astrocytes, microglia, neurons, and other cells in brain sections. The combination of this antibody with clone SMI-91 and/or SMI-94 is useful for immunocytochemical studies on the progression of normal and pathologic myelination.

Additional Product Notes

Myelin basic protein exists in multiple isoforms. By WB, clone SMI 99 detects mainly the 21 kD and 28 kD isoforms in the murine brain tissue, and the 21 kD isoform in the human brain tissue.
