Anti-AN2 antibodies, human and mouse

Clone: REA989 | Dilution: 1:50
Clone REA989 recognizes the human and mouse AN2 antigen. AN2 is the mouse homolog of the rat NG2 and human MCSP proteins. NG2 is a chondroitin sulfate glycoprotein that is expressed by glial progenitor cells in the developing and adult central nervous system (CNS) and by immature Schwann cells. NG2/AN2
glia has been identified as a fourth major glial cell type in the mammalian CNS that is distinct from other cell types. NG2/AN2
cells are precursors of oligodendrocytes and some protoplasmic astrocytes in the gray matter. NG2/AN2 expression is down-regulated before the cells undergo terminal differentiation. However, a population of NG2/AN2
cells remains in the white and gray matter after oligodendrocytes are generated. NG2/AN2
glial cells participate in neuron-glial circuits by receiving presynaptic input from neurons and responding to neurotransmitters released by synapses. Many highly migratory neural tumors including melanomas express NG2/AN2.
Additional information: Clone REA989 displays negligible binding to Fc receptors.
