A16145B_ULEAF_B-NGF_Antibody_1_082619_updated.png
Recombinant human β-NGF (Black Circles, Cat. No. 762206) induces the proliferation of human erythroleukemia TF-1 cells. Anti-human β-NGF antibody (clone A16145B , Purple Squares) neutralizes the proliferation function of recombinant human β-NGF at 0.08 µg/mL in TF-1 cells in a dose-dependent manner while the isotype control (Cat. No. 400264, Green Triangles) does not have the effect. The ND50 = 0.1-0.8 µg/mL.

Description

Neurotrophins are growth factors that modulate growth, differentiation, and survival of neurons. These structurally related proteins include nerve growth factor (NGF/β-NGF), brain-derived neurogenic factor (BDNF), neurotrophin-3, and neurotrophin-4/5. They are highly homologous and share a similar structure of a tertiary folded, cysteine rich "knot". Neurotrophins are critical to the development of the central and peripheral nervous systems, and they play important roles in injury-induced neuronal regeneration. β-NGF is a member of the neurotrophin family which controls growth, survival, and maturation of neurons. In peripheral and central neurons, neurotrophins are important regulators for survival, differentiation, and maintenance of nerve cells. They are detectable throughout embryogenesis and into the adult stage in the central and peripheral nervous systems. In animal models, β-NGF prevents neuronal degeneration and has become a therapeutical target in neuron regeneration studies. β-NGF is also critical for the survival and maintenance of sympathetic and sensory neurons. It is the main neurotrophin that maintains homeostasis of neurogenesis. It prevents neurons from undergoing apoptosis and promotes maturation while supporting axonal branching. Two receptors are known to interact with NGF, p75NTR and TrkA. The NGF-TrkA signaling pathway induces two pathways through activation of PI3K-Akt or Ras-MAPK. Either one of the pathways leads to CREB phosphorylation and increases expression of anti-apoptosis genes to keep neurons alive. Animal models of neurodegenerative diseases suggest that NGF can promote myelin repair of neurons in the peripheral nervous system. Clinical studies indicate that dysregulation of NGF signaling is related to Alzheimer's disease.

Related FAQs

Does BioLegend test each LEAF™ antibody by functional assay?

No, BioLegend does not test LEAF™ antibodies by functional assays unless otherwise indicated. Due to the possible complexities and variations of uses of biofunctional antibodies in different assays and because of the large product portfolio, BioLegend does not currently perform functional assays as a routine QC for the antibodies. However, we do provide references in which the antibodies were used for functional assays and we do perform QC to verify the specificity and quality of the antibody based on our strict specification criteria.

Do you guarantee that your antibodies are totally pathogen free?

BioLegend does not test for pathogens in-house aside from the GoInVivo™ product line. However, upon request, this can be tested on a custom basis with an outside, independent laboratory.

Does BioLegend test each LEAF™ antibody for potential pathogens?

No, BioLegend does not test for pathogens in-house unless otherwise indicated.  However, we can recommend an outside vendor to perform this testing as needed.

Have you tested this LEAF™/Ultra-LEAF™ antibody for in vivo or in vitro applications?

We don't test our antibodies for in vivo or in vitro applications unless otherwise indicated. Depending on the product, the TDS may describe literature supporting usage of a particular product for bioassay. It may be best to further consult the literature to find clone specific information.
