TRPV3 (extracellular) Blocking Peptide (#BLP-CC033) is the original antigen used for immunization during Anti-TRPV3 (extracellular) Antibody (#ACC-033) generation. The blocking peptide binds and ‘blocks’ Anti-TRPV3 (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.

- Expression of TRPV3 in mouse spinal cordImmunohistochemical staining of mouse spinal cord using Anti-TRPV3 (extracellular) Antibody (#ACC-033). A. TRPV3 (green) appears in neurons (vertical arrows) in the ventral horn of the mouse spinal cord. B. Motor neurons were stained with goat anti-choline-acetyltransferase (red). In some motor neurons (A) TRPV3 was more intense (vertical arrow) whereas in others it was weak (horizontal arrows). C. Merged images of panels A and B. The inset in C magnifies one large motor neuron (vertical arrowhead). Note the punctate pattern of TRPV3 on the surface of the soma.
