Background informationNPC2 is a secreted protein mapping against gene 14q24.3 (1,2). NPC2 regulates the lipid composition of sperm membranes during maturation in the epididymis(1,2). Mutations in the NPC2 gene may cause Nieman-Pick type C2 disease and frontal lobe atrophy (1,2,3). Nieman-Pick type C2 is a fatal hereditary disease characterized by defective lysosome release of cholesterol (3). The disease is caused by HE1 deficiency, a lysosmal protein proven to be undetectable in fibroblasts from NPC2 patients (3). This differentiates NPC2 from NPC1, as NPC1 has HE1 protein present (3).

AdvisoryAvoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
PropertiesFor facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.
ConjugationAlexa Fluor,ALEXA FLUOR® 594
ConjugatedAlexa conjugate 1
DescriptionThis antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
GroupPolyclonals and antibodies
AboutPolyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
