Immunofluorescence analysis of neurons using anti-MAP2 antibody (MA5-12823). GABAergic precursor cells derived from H9 embryonic stem cells were differentiated for 7 days and stained with antibodies against MAP2 (Cat. No. MA5-12823 at 1:200) followed by Alexa Fluor 488 goat anti-rabbit (Cat. No. A21206, green). Nuclear DNA was stained with DAPI (blue) in the merged image (right panel).

This antibody is specific to MAP2a and MAP2b, and will not cross-react with MAP1, MAP5, tubulin or tau. This clone reacts with dendrites and cell bodies of neurons but not with the neuronal processes. It does not react with the low MW form (70 kDa, MAP2c). The epitope has been mapped to aa 997-1332.
The molecular weight of the doublet is ~280 kDa.
For IHC staining, formalin-fixed tissues must be boiled in a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10-20 min followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Recommened positive controls include human glioblastoma T98G cells or brain tissue.
Microtubule Associated Protein 2 exists in two high molecular weight forms (2a and 2b) and a low molecular weight form. The expression of MAP2 is developmentally regulated and its multiple forms arise by alternative splicing of a single gene. Ab-2 is highly specific to MAP2a,b and shows no cross-reaction with MAP1, MAP5, tubulin, or tau. Ab-2 reacts with dendrites and cell bodies of neurons but not with the neuronal processes. It does not react with the low molecular weight (70kDa) form (2c) of MAP2. It is useful in studies of neuron structure in normal and malignant brain tissue as well as in degenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.
