Human Mouse Rat
ICC IHC WB
Human NSE-2 (EC 220.127.116.11) is a 47,138 dalton protein (434 amino acids) expressed in neurons of the peripheral nervous system (PNS) and central nervous system (CNS). NSE-2 catalyzes the conversion of 2-phospho-D-glycerate into phosphoenol pyruvate and is an essential enzyme in energy metabolism in nervous tissues.
Chickens were immunized with two synthetic peptide / keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) conjugates. These synthetic peptides corresponded to different regions of the NSE-2 gene product, but are shared between the human (NP_001966, NCBI) and rat (AAA41119, 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, and the concentrations of the eluates adjusted to 200 ug/ml. Finally, equal volumes of each of the three affinity-purified anti-peptide antibodies were mixed, and the preparation was filtersterilized.

Antibody Validation and Application Notes
This antibody has been validated using the following assays:
The following quality control assay is performed on each new lot of this antibody to ensure it meets designated performance requirements.
Both of these anti-peptide antibodies were analyzed by immunohisto-chemistry (at a dilution of 1:5000) using fluorescein-labeled goat anti-chicken IgY (1:500 dilution, Aves Labs Cat.# F-1005) as the secondary reagent.
