Antibodies to Neural Progenitor Cells | Antibodies to L7/Pcp2, Otp, Emx 1, Six3, and Otx2

Neural progenitor cells express characteristic protein biomarkers, and antibodies to these biomarkers allow analysis of cell differentiation during embryonic development and organogenesis. These antibodies are of particular use for studies in the field of regenerative medicine, may be used as neurogenesis differentiation markers with induced ES or iPS cells, and are suitable for immunohistochemistry on fixed tissue and western blotting. L7 antibodies allow detection of Purkinje cells, which are the output neurons of the cerebellar cortex.  Otp antibodies can be used to identify differentiating hypothalamic neuroendocrine cells. Antibodies to Emx1 allow detection of this cerebral cortical marker during early embryogenesis. Six3 antibodies can have been used to study generation of rostral hypothalamic-like progenitors from mouse ES cell-derived neuroectodermal cells. Otx2 antibodies have been used to study differentiation of retinal progenitors in embryonic neural retina and induced ES cells in culture.

These polyclonal antibodies were developed in the laboratory of Yoshiki Sasai, M.D., PhD, Center for Developmental Biology (RIKEN).

  • Immunohistochemical staining on fixed tissue
  • Western blotting under reducing conditions (M196, M197)


Frozen solution in 10 mM PBS, pH 7.4. If dilution is necessary for your experimental application, dilute in a solution of 10 mM PBS pH 7.4 and 1.0% BSA just prior to use. Do not store diluted antibody.


0.2 mg IgG per 100 µl


Store the stock solution (2.0 mg/mL) in aliquots at -20°C. Stock solution may be stored at 4°C for up to 6 months after adding sodium azide to a final concentration of 0.1%. Diluted antibody is prone to degredation; do not store at a concentration of less than 2.0 mg/ml.
