MA1-06812 detects reticulon-1A(NSP-A) in human, mouse, hamster, and rat samples.
MA1-06812 has sucessfully been used in Western blotting, immunocytochemistry and immunohistochemistry procedures. By Western blot it detects a ~135 kDa band representing reticulon-1A.
The MA1-06812 immunogen is a partially purified bacterially expressed reticulon-1A (NSP-A) hybrid protein.
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 of ~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).
