SCN2A/Nav1.2 Blocking Peptide (#BLP-SC002) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-SCN2A (NaV1.2) Antibody (#ASC-002) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-SCN2A/Nav1.2 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.
- Western blot analysis of rat brain membranes:
- Expression of NaV1.2 in mouse hippocampusImmunohistochemical staining of mouse hippocampus using Anti-SCN2A (NaV1.2) Antibody (#ASC-002 ). A. NaV1.2 (red) is present in dendrites of pyramidal neurons in the CA3 region. B. Staining of interneurons in the pyramidal layer with mouse anti-Parvalbumin (green) demonstrates the restriction of NaV1.2 to dendrites (arrows) extending from the pyramidal layer (P). C. Confocal merge of panels A and B.
- Western blot analysis of rat brain (lanes 1 and 3) and mouse brain (lanes 2 and 4) membranes:
- Multiplex staining of Melatonin receptor type 1B and NaV1.2 in rat paraventricular nucleusImmunohistochemical staining of perfusion-fixed frozen rat paraventricular nucleus sections using Anti-Melatonin Receptor 1B (MTNR1B) Antibody (#AMR-032), (1:600) and Guinea pig Anti-SCN2A (NaV1.2) Antibody (#ASC-002-GP), (1:2000). A. MTNR1B staining (red) (arrows). B. The same section labeled for NaV1.2 (green). C. Merge of A and B demonstrates partial co-localization of MTNR1B and NaV1.2 in the paraventricular nucleus (PVN). For orientation, note location with respect to the third ventricle (3rd V). Cell nuclei were stained with DAPI (blue).
