Gene Name NTN1
Protein Name Netrin-1
Molecular Weight 67748 MW
Protein Function Netrins control guidance of CNS commissural axons and peripheral motor axons. Its association with either DCC or some UNC5 receptors will lead to axon attraction or repulsion, respectively. It also serve as a survival factor via its association with its receptors which prevent the initiation of apoptosis. Involved in tumorigenesis by regulating apoptosis. .
Tissue Specificity Widely expressed in normal adult tissues with highest levels in heart, small intestine, colon, liver and prostate. Reduced expression in brain tumors and neuroblastomas. Expressed in epididymis (at protein level). .
Sequence Similarities Contains 3 laminin EGF-like domains.
Subcellular Localization Secreted, extracellular space, extracellular matrix .
Uniprot ID O95631
Alternative Names Netrin-1;Epididymis tissue protein Li 131P;NTN1;NTN1L;
Research Areas |neuroscience|neurology process|growth and development|axonal guidance proteins| neuroscience|neurogenesis| signal transduction|cytoskeleton / ecm|extracellular matrix|ecm proteins|other ecm proteins|
*if product is indicated to react with multiple species, protein info is based on the human gene.

Background for Netrin-1

Netrin-1(NTN1), also known as NTN1L, is a diffusible protein made by floor plate cells. Netrin-1 is found in the floor plate and neuroepithelial cells of the ventral region of the spinal cord, as well as other locations in the nervous system including the somatic mesoderm, pancreas and cardiac muscle. The human NTN1 gene is mapped to chromosome 17p13-p12 by FISH. Netrin-1 can attract spinal commissural axons and repel trochlear axons in vitro. And netrin-1 expression confers a selective advantage for tumor cell survival. The binding of netrin-1 to DCC appears to depend on the presence of a coreceptor or accessory proteins. Adenosine A2b receptor is actually a netrin-1 receptor and induces cAMP accumulation on binding netrin-1, and that netrin-1-dependent outgrowth of dorsal spinal cord axons directly involves A2b. Netrin-1 can promote intestinal tumor development, probably by regulating cell survival. Thus, a netrin-1 receptor or receptors function as conditional tumor suppressors. Expression of Unc5b triggered endothelial cell repulsion in response to netrin-1 in vitro, whereas a truncated Unc5b lacking the intracellular signaling domain failed to induce repulsion.

Customer Q&As

Q: Do you offer BSA-free antibodies? Keyword: Bovine serum albumin, carrier protein, conjugation
A: Yes, please contact us at for more information about BSA-free antibodies and availability. The new BSA-free formula uses trehalose as a replacement to BSA. We have tested many alternative chemicals and found that trehalose protects the antibodies the best.
Q: Is your western blot protocol provided from the website applicable for all your antibodies? Keyword: applications, WB
A: The protocol is applicable for all our antibodies in WB, the NC Membrane(0.45μm or 0.22μm) and transfer time(70 mins or 50 mins) depends on the protein molecular weight, details can be found in included protocol.
Q: Can I conjugate markers to this antibody? Can I link custom conjugates to this antibody? Keyword: conjugation
A: The antibody is stored with BSA and cannot be conjugated with markers. Carrier free antibodies are available upon request. Please contact
Q: What should I use for negative control?
A: Please contact us for negative control suggestions. You can also check expression databases such as genecards, uniprot etc. Due to logistic reasons, we do not sell serum or lysates that we use internally for positive or negative control.
Q: Where can I find troubleshooting information? What should I do if I have unexpected bands, high background, no signal, weak signal
A: You can find Boster's troubleshoot guides under tech support tab. Please contact us for further assistance on troubleshooting your experiment.
Q: What is the immunogen sequence of this antibody? Is this antibody polyclonal or monoclonal?
A: You can find the immunogen sequence under "Immunogen" and clonality in the product name.
Q: What is the expected band size? Why is it different than the observed band size?
A: The expected band size is predicted on the size of the protein. The actual band size may be affected by a few other factors including but not limited to:
1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands

3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.

4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
Q: What is the suggested dilution ratio for Western Blot (WB), Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and or ELISA standards? What is the optimal pH for the sample?
A: Check the datasheet for the product for details on dilution ratios for different experiments. You can find the datasheet button on the right side of the product page.
Q: What is the protocol you used for your Western blotting (WB) and Immunohistochemistry (IHC)?
A: Check our protocols under the tech support tab.
Q: What are some alternative names that could be used to describe this product?
A: One other very common name is netrin-1 antibody
