Background of Bdnf

Brain derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is a member of the neurotrophin family of growth factors that includes NGF, NT3, and NT4. BDNF is a prosurvival factor induced by cortical neurons that is necessary for survival of striatal neurons in the brain. BDNF is expressed within peripheral ganglia and is not restricted to neuronal target fields. BDNF has been purified and shown to reduce the amount of naturally occurring neuronal cell death in portions of the peripheral nervous system.

Antibody Validation

Boster validates all antibodies on WB, IHC, ICC, Immunofluorescence and ELISA with known positive and negative samples to ensure specificity and high affinity.

Will anti-BDNF antibody PA1014 work on primate WB with leukocyte?

Verified Customer

Verified customer

Asked: 2019-10-07


Our lab technicians have not tested anti-BDNF antibody PA1014 on primate. You can run a BLAST between primate and the immunogen sequence of anti-BDNF antibody PA1014 to see if they may cross-react. If the sequence homology is close, then you can perform a pilot test. Keep in mind that since we have not validated primate samples, this use of the antibody is not covered by our guarantee. However we have an innovator award program that if you test this antibody and show it works in primate leukocyte in WB, you can get your next antibody for free.

Would PA1014 anti-BDNF antibody work on parafin embedded sections? If so, which fixation method do you recommend we use (PFA, paraformaldehyde, other)?

Z. Jackson

Verified customer

Asked: 2015-10-22


It shows on the product datasheet, PA1014 anti-BDNF antibody as been tested on WB. It is best to use PFA for fixation because it has better tissue penetration ability. PFA needs to be prepared fresh before use. Long term stored PFA turns into formalin, as the PFA molecules congregate and become formalin.
