Re: Nerve Growth Factor Receptor

Hi Jennifer-

I have used P75 antibodies frequently over the past 15
years. (One of our researchers prepared the original clone for
I usually use monoclonal but this applies to polyclonals as well:
P75 results are excellent with methcarn/paraffin embedded
sections. If you must use formalin-fixed specimens, you should
still get good results with pronase or the other antigen
retrieval methods. I have used various P75 antibodies in the
1-5ug/ml range, usually overnight at rt or 2hrs rt, followed by
overnight at 4C.

Good luck!
