Immunofluorescence analysis of NCAM was done on 70% confluent log phase HeLa cells. The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde for 15 minutes; permeabilized with 0.25% Triton™ X-100 for 10 minutes followed by blocking with 5% BSA for 1 hour at room temperature. The cells were incubated with ABfinity™ NCAM Recombinant Rabbit Oligoclonal Antibody (710388) at 1 µg-2 µg in 1% BSA and incubated for 3 hours at room temperature and then labeled with Alexa Flour® 488 Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG Secondary Antibody (A11008) at a dilution of 1:400 for 30 minutes at room temperature (Panel a: green). Nuclei (Panel b: blue) were stained with SlowFade® Gold Antifade Mountant with DAPI (S36938). F-actin (Panel c: red) was stained with Alexa Fluor® 594 Phalloidin (A12381). Panel d is a merged image showing cytoplasmic and membrane localization of NCAM. Panel e shows no primary antibody. The images were captured at 20X magnification.

ABfinity™ recombinant antibodies are rabbit monoclonal antibodies, unmatched for producing superior results. ABfinity™ antibodies are developed by immunizing animals, screening for functionality, cloning the immunogen-specific antibody genes into high-level mammalian expression vectors, produced on a large scale and purified with Protein A.
ABfinity™ oligoclonal antibodies comprise a selection of multiple different recombinant monoclonal antibodies, providing the best of both worlds—the sensitivity of a polyclonal antibody with the specificity of a monoclonal, all delivered with the consistency only found in a recombinant antibody. While functionally the same as a polyclonal antibody—recognizing multiple epitope sites on the target and producing higher detection sensitivity for low abundance targets when compared with monoclonal antibodies—an oligoclonal antibody has a known mixture of light and heavy chains. This exact population can be produced in every lot, circumventing the biological variability typically associated with polyclonal antibody production.
Intact IgG appears on a non-reducing gel as ~150 kDa band and upon reduction generating a ~25 kDa light chain band and a ~50 kDa heavy chain.
The neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) is a member of the Ig superfamily, and is involved in mediating homophilic binding. A number of different isoforms of NCAM exist. The isoforms are differentially expressed depending upon tissue type, and stage of development. In addition to playing a role in cell-cell adhesion, NCAM is also involved in development, neurite outgrowth, synaptic plasticity, learning, and memory.
