Nppb-SAP [IT-69]

a tool for eliminating cells that express Neuropeptide natriuretic polypeptide b (Nppb or BNP) receptor; targeted via mouse BNP-32, eliminated via saporin

SKU: IT-69 Category: Product Size: 25 ug, 100 ug, 250 ug, 1 mg | Host: mouse | Conjugate: saporin | Usage: eliminates cells |

Itch is triggered by somatosensory neurons expressing the ion channel TRPV1 (transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily V member 1). Neuropeptide natriuretic polypeptide b (Nppb) is expressed in a subset of TRPV1 neurons and research has found that Nppb lesioned mice selectively lose almost all behavioral responses to itch-inducing agents. Itch responses are blocked by toxin-mediated ablation of Nppb-receptor expressing cells, but a second neuropeptide, gastrin-releasing peptide (Bombesin-SAP, IT-40), still induces strong responses in the toxin-treated animals. Nppb-SAP eliminates cells expressing neuropeptide natriuretic polypeptide b (Nppb or BNP) receptor.

Nppb-SAP eliminates Nppb-receptor expressing cells. All other cells are left untouched. It is not suitable for retrograde transport.
