Description

Intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) contain melanopsin. The ipRGCs, with their amazing long processes, are involved in the perception of light and dark and are circadian rhythm determinants. Anti-Melanopsin (UF006) has very high specificity to mouse ipRGCs.

Anti-Melanopsin (UF006) recognizes a sequence representing the 15 most N-terminal amino acids of the mouse melanopsin extracellular domain. Anti-Melanopsin (UF006) does not cross-react with melanopsins of other species, it is very specific for mouse. This antibody is routinely tested by immunofluorescence.

LEGEND: Staining of a cross-sectioned mouse retina. The counter-label in green is PKCalpha, a bipolar cell marker. Anti-Melanopsin staining is in red. Images courtesy of Jingyi Gao, Xiaorong Liu, and Ignacio Provencio.

Applications include immunofluorescence. This antibody works in cross-section staining, but does not work in flat-mount staining. This antibody does NOT work in immunoblotting.
