Melanopsin Rabbit Polyclonal [AB-N38]


SKU: AB-N38 Category: Quantity: 50 ul | Antibody Type: Polyclonal | Host: rabbit | Reactivity: mouse | Conjugate: unconjugated | Usage: immunofluorescence |

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.

Applications include immunofluorescence. This antibody does NOT work in immunoblotting.

Anti-Melanopsin staining on either flat-mount or cross-section staining of mouse retina. Staining of the antibody is shown in green. Blue is DAPI and tdTomato (red) signal from OPN4cre; R26Syp-tdT mouse line. Cat. #AB-N38 (neat sera) is lot #205-130 and Cat. #AB-N39 (affinity-purified) is lot #205-129.
