Human Mouse Rat
Murine netrin-1 precursor is a 67,768 dalton protein (604 amino acids) expressed by subpopulations of cells within the developing CNS, as well as in various non-neural tissues, including the gut, liver, heart, and prostate. In the embryonic CNS, netrin-1 is expressed by cells of the floor plate, and acts to attract axons of "commissural neurons" from the dorsal horn gray matter. Netrin-1 is also believed to play a role in the growth of motor axons in the PNS.
Chickens were immunized with a synthetic peptide-keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) conjugate. This synthetic peptide corresponded to the netrin-1 gene product, but was shared between the human (O_095631, NCBI) and mouse (O_09118, NCBI) sequences. After repeated injections into the hens, immune eggs were collected, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks. These IgY fractions were then affinity-purified using a peptide column, the concentrations of the eluate adjusted to 100 ug/ml, and the preparation filter-sterilized.
