Contactin-1 (extracellular) Blocking Peptide (#BLP-NR171) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-Contactin-1/CNTN1 (extracellular) Antibody (#ANR-171) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-Contactin-1 (extracellular) primary antibody, this makes it a good negative reagent control to help confirm antibody specificity in western blot and immunohistochemistry applications. This control is also often called a pre-adsorption control.
