Peripherin Antibody detects Peripherin. Peripherin is a ~57kDa intermediate filament subunit found initially in sensory neurons of the peripheral nervous systems, which gives the protein its name. Subsequently, peripherin was found in some sensory and other neurons of the central nervous system and also in PC12 cells. Peripherin is also expressed in certain neuroendocrine tumors and in the insulin producing cells of the pancreas. Peripherin belongs to the Class III family of intermediate filament subunits which also includes vimentin, glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) and desmin. In contrast to the neurofilaments, peripherin is strongly up-regulated after nerve injury. Antibodies to peripherin can be used in identifying, classifying, and studying neurons throughout the nervous system. Peripherin is also a good diagnostic marker for ballooned axons seen in Lou Gehrig's disease (Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) and some neuronally derived tumors. Autoantibodies to peripherin are frequently seen in the sera of patients with diabetes. Peripherin is not related to peripherin/RDS, a protein of the photoreceptor outer membrane mutations of which are causative of certain forms of slow retinal degeneration. Anti-Peripherin Antibody is ideal for investigators involved in Neuroscience and Cancer research

Human, Mouse, Rat
Recombinant Protein
Anti-Peripherin Antibody was produced by repeated immunizations with a recombinant rat peripherin expressed in E. coli.
Anti-Peripherin antibody is directed against rat Peripherin. This antibody is a total IgY fraction. Reactivity is expected from the following species based on 100% sequence homology: many mammalian. Cross reactivity with Peripherin from other species is not known.

Application Details

Anti-Peripherin Antibody is tested for use in Western Blotting and IF. Specific conditions for reactivity should be optimized by the end user. Expect a band of approximately 57 kDa in size corresponding to peripherin proteins in the appropriate cell lysate or extract.
