Nav1.6/SCN8A Blocking Peptide (#BLP-SC009) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-NaV1.6 (SCN8A) Antibody (#ASC-009) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-Nav1.6/SCN8A 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.

- Expression of NaV1.6 in mouse hippocampusImmunohistochemical staining of mouse hippocampus using Anti-NaV1.6 (SCN8A) Antibody (#ASC-009). A. NaV1.6 (green) is robustly expressed in the CA1 pyramidal layer (white arrows). B. Staining with mouse anti-parvalbumin (red), a marker of interneurons. C. Merged image of panels A and B reveals that NaV1.6 appears in some interneurons (arrow) but is not restricted to interneurons. DAPI is used as the counterstain.
