Rabbit anti nNOS antibody recognizes neuronal nitric oxide synthase also known as nNOS and NOS type I. nNOS catalyzes the synthesis of the second messenger molecule and neurotransmitter, nitric oxide (NO), in the brain. NO is also produced by immune cells, such as macrophages, as part of the immune response by the iNOS (inducible nitric oxide synthase). In endothelia, the molecule is produced by eNOS (endothelial nitric oxide synthase) where it acts as a vasodilator. Neuronal nitrogen oxide synthase, via regulation of NO levels, is important for nervous system development and plays a role in development and learning (Esplugues, 2002).

Storage Information

This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.

Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
