Preparation: Produced from sera of rabbits immunized with highly pure Recombinant Human CNTF. Anti-Human CNTF-specific antibody was purified by affinity chromatography employing an immobilized Human CNTF matrix.
Sandwich ELISA: To detect Human CNTF by sandwich ELISA (using 100 µL/well antibody solution) a concentration of 0.5-2.0 µg/mL of this antibody is required. This antigen affinity purified antibody, in conjunction with PeproTech Biotinylated Anti-Human CNTF (500-P140Bt) as a detection antibody, allows the detection of at least 0.2-0.4 ng/well of Recombinant Human CNTF.
Western Blot: To detect Human CNTF by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1-0.2 µg/mL. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for Recombinant Human CNTF is 1.5-3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions.
The protein encoded by this gene is a polypeptide hormone whose actions appear to be restricted to the nervous system where it promotes neurotransmitter synthesis and neurite outgrowth in certain neuronal populations. The protein is a potent survival factor for neurons and oligodendrocytes and may be relevant in reducing tissue destruction during inflammatory attacks. A mutation in this gene, which results in aberrant splicing, leads to ciliary neurotrophic factor deficiency, but this phenotype is not causally related to neurologic disease. A read-through transcript variant composed of ZFP91 and CNTF sequence has been identified, but it is thought to be non-coding. Read-through transcription of ZFP91 and CNTF has also been observed in mouse.
