Mouse anti Human protein gene product 9.5 antibody, clone 13C4 recognizes protein gene product 9.5 (PGP9.5), a ubiquitin hydrolase which is widely expressed in neuronal tissues and represents 1-2% of total soluble brain proteins. PGP9.5, also known as ubiquitin C-terminal hydrolase 1 (UCHL-1), is involved in the regulation of the ubuiquitin pathway.

This product stains neuronal cell bodies and axons in the CNS and periphery, small nerve fibres in peripheral tissues, neuroendocrine cells in the pituitary, thyroid, pancreas and tumours of the DNES. Also stains neuroendocrine cells in human adult gut (unlike 31A3).

Clones 31A3 and 13C4 each recognise a different epitope towards the N-terminus of the protein.

Application Name Verified Min Dilution Max Dilution
Immunohistology - Paraffin 1 1/200
Western Blotting 1/100 1/1000
  1. 1 Antigen is stable in formalin fixed paraffin embedded sections, however we recommend fixation in 95% ethanol/5% acetic acid for 2-3 hours prior to paraffin embedding. Can be used without acid/ethanol fixation if the sections are subjected to microwave treatment in citrate buffer by standard methods.
Where this product has not been tested for use in a particular technique this does not necessarily exclude its use in such procedures. Suggested working dilutions are given as a guide only. It is recommended that the user titrates the product for use in their own system using the appropriate negative/positive controls.
