    Scientific background

    Neural cell adhesion molecule 1 (NCAM-1) is a member of a large family of cell-surface glycoproteins and plays a major role during development and controls various functions in the nervous system such as cell migration, neurite growth, axonal guidance, and synaptic plasticity1. NCAM-1 mediates adhesion between cells through homophilic bonds formed between its extracellular domains, which comprise five tandem Ig domains and two juxtamembrane fibronectin type III (Fn III) domains2. There are three major protein isoforms of NCAM-1: 180 kd, 140 kd, and 120 kd. The 180-kd and 140-kd isoforms of NCAM-1 are transmembrane proteins, whereas the 120-kd isoform is linked to the plasma membrane via a glycosyl phosphatidyl-inositol (GPI) lipid anchor3

    NCAM-1 is widely expressed in the central nervous system, skeletal muscle and natural killer cells4.

    Several lines of evidence have supported the idea that dysregulation of NCAM-1 isoforms in the brain might be involved in the pathophysiology of neuropsychiatric disorders, particularly bipolar affective disorder5.

    Last update: 12/08/2021

    Anti-CD56/NCAM1 (extracellular) Antibody (#ANR-041) is a highly specific antibody directed against rat Neural cell adhesion molecule 1. The antibody can be used in western blot, live cell imaging, and immunohistochemistry applications. The antibody recognizes an extracellular epitope and is thus ideal for detecting the protein in living cells. It has been designed to recognize NCAM1 from rat, mouse and human samples.
