Long descriptionRecently, a novel gene family has been identified and characterized, designated the Reticulons because the proteins encoded by these genes are anchored to the membranes of the endoplasmic reticulum. Reticulon-1 was formerly designated NSP for Neuroendocrine-Specific-Protein, because it is specifically expressed in neural and neuroendocrine tissues. The NSP-gene has been mapped by fluorescence in situ hybridization to Human chromosome 14q21-q22. The NSP-gene encodes three overlapping proteins, i.e. Reticulon-1A (NSP-A), Reticulon-1B (NSP-B), and Reticulon-1C (NSP-C). These proteins were found to be anchored to membranes of the endoplasmic reticulum through their common carboxy-terminal regions. Reticulon-1A is a protein with a molecular weight (MW) of about 135 kDa, which occurs in various isoforms presumably depending on the degree of phosphorylation of serine residues. In lung cancer diagnosis Reticulon-1A appeared to be a reliable marker for the detection of neuroendocrine differentiation, since most of the small cell lung carcinoma (SCLC) and carcinoid tumors showed expression of Reticulon-1A. Reticulon-1B is a phosphoprotein with a MW of 45 kDa and is restricted to the lung cancer cell line NCI-H82. Reticulon-1B is sofar not found in Human tissues. Reticulon-1C is a protein with a MW of 23 kDa which is not phosphorylated and is found with Reticulon-1A in SCLC (cell lines) and not in non-SCLC (cell cultures).
Antibody come fromRNL-4 is a Mouse monoclonal IgG1 antibody derived by fusion of SP2/0-Ag14 Mouse myeloma cells, with spleen cells from a BALB/c Mouse immunized with a synthetic peptide encompassing the unique 20 N-terminal amino acid sequence of Reticulon-1C.
Other descriptionEach vial contains 1ml of culture supernatant of monoclonal antibody containing 0.09% sodium azide.

Antibody's specificityRNL-4 recognizes an epitope loCated within the first 20 amino acids of Reticulon-1C (NSP-C). RNL-4 reacts with peripheral nerves and ganglia of various tissues and cross-reacts with smooth muscle cells and myoepithelium. In the central nervous system it reacts with the neurohypophysis and pars intermedia of the pituitary gland, and a weak diffuse staining was observed in neurons of the granular and molecular layer of the cerebellar cortex, while glial cells, cerebellar medulla and Purkinje cells are negative. Reticulon-1 has been found to indiCate neuronal differentiation and to be downregulated in neurological pathologies.

ApplicationFlow Cytometry,Immunocytochemistry,Immunohistochemistry (frozen),Western blotting
Antibody's suited forRNL-4 is useful for immunocytochemistry, immunohistochemistry on frozen tissues, immunoblotting and flow cytometry. Optimal antibody dilution should be determined by titration; recommended range is 1:2 – 1:10 for flow cytometry, and for immunohistochemistry with avidin-biotinylated Horseradish peroxidase complex (ABC) as detection reagent, and 1:5 – 1:50 for immunoblotting applications.
StorageStore at 4°C, or in small aliquots at -20°C.

DescriptionThis antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
TestMouse or mice from the Mus musculus species are used for production of mouse monoclonal antibodies or mabs and as research model for humans in your lab. Mouse are mature after 40 days for females and 55 days for males. The female mice are pregnant only 20 days and can give birth to 10 litters of 6-8 mice a year. Transgenic, knock-out, congenic and inbread strains are known for C57BL/6, A/J, BALB/c, SCID while the CD-1 is outbred as strain.
