Protein Gene Product 9.5 (PGP 9.5) is an abundant cytoplasmic neuron and neuroendocrine-cell specific protein. Over the years, this deubiquitinating enzyme (a.k.a. Ubiquitin Carboxy-terminal Hydrolase L1 (UCH-L1)) has become an accepted biomarker for neurons and cells of the diffuse neuroendocrine system (DNES) but also when studying neurodegenerative disorders (e.g. Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases) and cancers.
Research antibodies specific for PGP9.5 / UCH-L1 stain neuronal cell bodies and axons in the central and peripheral nervous systems, small nerve fibres in nerve tissue, neuroendocrine cells in the pituitary, thyroid pancreas, and also tumours of the DNES.
In this context, Cedarlane just release 2 new anti-PGP9.5 / UCHL1 rabbit polyclonal antibodies fully validated & guaranteed for IHC analysis of Paraffin Embedded Sections, IF and WB applications on Human, Rat and Mouse tissues. [Read more…]
