      DescriptionAnti-A2B5 Antibody, clone A2B5-105
      Alternate Names
      • Neuron Cell Surface Antigen
      Background InformationA2B5 is a cell surface ganglioside epitope expressed in developing thymic epithelial cells, oligodendrocyte progenitors and neuroendocrine cells. The A2B5 antigen is present in type 2 astrocytes but absent in type 1 astrocytes, allowing for the differentiation of these different types of cells. A2B5 antibody has been used in flow cytometry and immunohistochemistry experiments to stain type II astrocytes, cells involved in gliogenesis and cells committed to the oligodendrocyte lineage.
      Product Information
      • Type II astrocytes, human neural progenitors
      PresentationLiquid. Buffer = PBS, pH 7.1 with 2 mg/mL BSA.
      Quality LevelMQ100
      ApplicationAnti-A2B5 Antibody, clone A2B5-105 detects level of A2B5 & has been published & validated for use in FC, IC, IF, IH.

      ConcentrationPlease refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific concentration.
      SpecificityRecognizes an epitope common to silaogangliosides and sulfatides from the plasma membranes of neurons, and neuroendocrine and glial cells. Anti-A2B5 has been used to specifically stain:

      Neurofibrillary tangles in the post-mortem brain tissue of patients with a confirmed diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease (Majocha et al., 1989)
      Neurons of chicken retina, brain, spinal cord, and dorsal root ganglia (Schnitzer & Schachner, 1982; Eisenbarth et al., 1979).
      Rat striatal nerve terminals [synaptosomes (Wolf & Kapatos, 1989)].
      Neuroblastoma cells in man (Oppedal et al., 1989; Coakham et al., 1985).
      Rat insulinoma cells and pancreatic islets cells (Shimizu et al., 1983; Bartholomeusz et al., 1989).
      Human and rat thymic epithelial cells (Haynes et al., 1988).
      Cells involved in gliogenesis (Bottenstein et al., 1988; Suzumura & Slerberg, 1989).
      Oligodendrocytes and astrocytes, type II (Dubois-Dalcq et al., 1990).
