Mouse anti Human Nestin antibody, clone 10C2
recognizes nestin, a large intermediate filament protein originally identified by (Hockfield and McKay 1985
). Nestin is predominately expressed in stem cells of the developing nervous system. Terminal differentiation is associated with a loss of nestin expression. Nestin expression has also been noted in other embryonic tissues, also in most Glioblastoma multiformes and many melanomas
