Semaphorin-3 and Neuropilin Antibody Kit

Antibody Sampler Kit



One family of inhibitory axon guidance molecules is the semaphorins. The semaphorins include secreted, transmembrane, and GPI-anchored extracellular molecules that have been implicated in neuron development, vascular disease, and tumor progression. There are eight classes of semaphorin genes, all of which are characterized by a conserved 500 amino acid, cystine-rich Sema domain. Sema-3A and Sema-3F are class III secreted semaphorins that bind with high affinity to Neuropilin-1 and Neuropilin-2, respectively. Both Sema-3A and Sema-3F, as well as their neuropilin receptors, may have important roles in axon guidance, angiogenesis, and tumor progression.

Western blot analysis of Sema-3F expression in adult mouse brain (lane 1), kidney (lane 2), and liver (lane 3). The blot was probed with anti-Sema-3F (SP3921) at 1:1000.

Formalin fixed, citric acid treated parafin sections of adult Rat cerebellum. Sections were probed with anti-Sema3A (SP1221) then anti-Rabbit:HRP before detection using DAB. (Images provided by Carl Hobbs and Dr. Pat Doherty at Wolfson Centre for Age-Related Diseases, King's College London).

Mouse monoclonal and rabbit polyclonal antibodies are supplied in phosphate-buffered saline, 50% glycerol, 1 mg/ml BSA, and 0.05% sodium azide. The secondary reagents are supplied in the same buffer without azide. Store all at –20°C. Stable for 1 year.

The products are are safely shipped at ambient temperature for both domestic and international shipments. Each product is guaranteed to match the specifications as indicated on the corresponding technical data sheet. Please store at -20C upon arrival for long term storage.

*All molecular weights (MW) are confirmed by comparison to Bio-Rad Rainbow Markers and to western blot mobilities of known proteins with similar MW.
