Immunofluorescent analysis of SY5Y cells using a NES polyclonal antibody (Product # PA5-11887). SY5Y cells were fixed with 4% PFA (20 min), permeabilized with Triton X-100 (0.2%, 30 min). Cells were then incubated with a NES polyclonal antibody (Product # PA5-11887) (1:200, 2 hr at room temperature). Primary antibody detected by fluor-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit secondary antibody (green) was used (1:1000, 1hr). Nuclei were counterstained with Hoechst 33342 (blue) (10 ug/ml, 5 min).

Nestin is a class VI intermediate filament protein expressed predominantly in stem cells of the neural tube but absent from virtually all differentiated CNS cells. In the CNS, nestin is downregulated upon differentiation and replaced by neurofilaments. Transient expression of nestin has been postulated as a key step committing cells to the neural differentiation pathway. Nestin expression has also been observed in pancreatic hematopoietic stem cell populations.
