Purified Recombinant Human NT-3 (>98%)
<10 ng/1 mg as determined by the LAL method
This antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody has been 0.2 µm filtered and lyophilized from modified Dulbecco’s phosphate buffered saline (1X PBS) pH 7.2 – 7.3 containing 5.0% w/v trehalose with no calcium, magnesium, or preservatives present.
Storage and Handling
The lyophilized antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody can be stored desiccated at -20°C to -70°C for twelve months from date of receipt. The reconstituted antibody can be stored for at least four weeks at 2-8°C. For long-term storage of the reconstituted antibody, aseptically aliquot into working volumes and store at -20°C to -70°C in a manual defrost freezer. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles. No detectable loss of activity was observed after six months.

Applications and Recommended Usage?
Quality Tested by Leinco
Western Blot: Suitable for use at concentration of 0.1 µg/mL.
Other Applications Reported In Literature ?
Immunohistochemistry: Suitable for use at concentration of 5-15 µg/mL.
Neutralization: Measured by its ability to neutralize NT‑3-induced proliferation in BaF‑TrKB-BD mouse pro‑B cell line transfected with TrkB. The Neutralization Dose (ND50) is typically 0.1-0.4 µg/mL in the presence of 20 ng/mL Recombinant Human NT‑3.
Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.
Rabbit Anti-Human Neurotrophin-3 (NT-3) recognizes Human NT-3. This antigen affinity purified polyclonal antibody was purified using a proprietary chromatographic technique that includes covalently immobilizing the antigen proteins or peptides to agarose based beads. This purification method enhances specificity, reduces nonspecific binding of extraneous IgG and provides you with the most reliable reagent available for your early discovery research.
Neurotrophin 3 (NT-3), also known as NTF3 is a basic protein found in neurons of the central nervous system. NT-3 selectively supports the survival of neuronal cell populations. It rapidly potentiate the spontaneous and impulse-evoked synaptic activity of developing neuromuscular synapses in culture and thus appears to be involved in the regulation of functions of developing synapses.1,2,3 NT-3 negatively modulates nerve growth factor (NGF) receptor expression and associated nociceptive phenotype in intact neurons, suggesting a beneficial role in treating aspects of neuropathic pain mediated by NGF. NT-3 is effective at suppressing thermal hyperalgesia associated with chronic constriction injury (CCI).4
