    HeLa cells were fixed with 2% PFA for 10 minutes, permeabilized with 0.5% Triton X-100 for five minutes, and blocked with 5% FBS for 30 minutes. Then the cells were stained with 2 µg/mL anti-CD171 Antibody (clone L1-OV198.5) followed by Alexa Fluor® 594 (red) conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG in blocking buffer for two hours at room temperature. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue). The image was captured with a 60X objective.

    Total cell lysates (15 µg protein) from HeLa, HepG2 and NIH3T3 were resolved by 4-12% Bis-tris gel electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with anti-CD171 Antibody (clone L1-OV198.5). Proteins were visualized using a goat anti-mouse IgG secondary antibody conjugated to HRP and chemiluminescence detection. HDAC1 Antibody was used as loading control.

CD171, also known as L1CAM or L1, is a transmembrane glycoprotein. It is a 200-220 kD neuronal cell adhesion molecule and a member of the L1 protein family belonging to the immunoglobulin superfamily.

This cell adhesion molecule plays an important role in nervous system development, including neuron-neuron adhesion, signal transduction, axon guidance, cell migration and differentiation. CD171 also has a strong implication in treatment-resistanct cancers. Mutations in the gene cause three X-linked neurological syndromes known by the acronym CRASH (corpus callosum hypoplasia, retardation, aphasia, spastic paraplegia and hydrocephalus). Alternative splicing of a neuron-specific exon is thought to be functionally relevant.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤ 0.25 µg per million cells in 100 µL volume. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 1.0 - 5.0 μg/mL is recommended. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.5 - 2.0 µg/mL. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
