PA1-033 detects nNOS from human, rat and mouse samples.
PA1-033 has been successfully used in Western blot, ICC/IF and immunohistochemisty (paraffin) procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~160 kDa protein. Detects a few non-specific bands in Western blot analysis of rat and mouse brain lysates. This antibody is not recommended for MCF-7, PC-12, SK-N-C or U87-MG cells in Western blot applications.
The PA1-033 immunogen is a synthetic peptide to residues C N(1411) R L R S E S I A F I E E S K(1425) of human nNOS. The peptide sequence is 100% conserved in rat, mouse, frog, and rabbit nNos proteins. This peptide (Cat. # PEP-190) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
NOS activity requires homodimerization as well as three cosubstrates (L-arginine, NADPH and O2) and five cofactors or prosthetic groups (FAD, FMN, calmodulin, tetrahydrobiopterin and heme). Several distinct NOS isoforms have been described and been shown to represent the products of three distinct genes. These include two constitutive Ca2+/CaM-dependent forms of NOS, including NOS1 (also designated ncNOS) whose activity was first identified in neurons, and NOS3 (also designated ecNOS), first identified in endothelial cells.
