Detect Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor using this Anti-Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor Antibody validated for use in WB, IH.
Immunohistochemistry: 1:1,000 (see suggested protocol).
Immunoblotting:1:1,000; we recommend preparing the BDNF samples for western blot by the method of Katoh-Semba (1997) because BDNF is not easily extracted in standard buffers. Dissected tissues should be homogenized in 10 volumes of 100mM phosphate buffer containing 1mM EDTA, 2M guanidine hydrochloride (pH7.2), and three protease inhibitors, 10mM N-ethylmaleimide, 0.36mM pepstatin, and 1mM PMSF. Homogenates are then sonicated and centrifuged at 46K x g for 30 minutes at 4C.
BIOLOGICAL ACTIVITY: Neutralizes BDNF, but not other neurotrophins.
Optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user.

Lyophilized, no preservatives. Reconstitute with 50 µL of sterile distilled water.
Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF). By dot blot, less than 1% cross-reactivity against NGF, NT3 or NT4.
SPECIES REACTIVITIES: Rat and human. Other species not yet tested. It is likely that the antibody will also work on mouse and porcine due to sequence homology.
Storage and Stability
Maintain lyophilized material at -20 to -70°C for up to 12 months. After reconstitution maintain at -20°C in undiluted aliquots for up to 6 months. Avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles. Glycerol (1:1) can be added for additional stability.
