The differentiation process of neurons can be divided into five stages, each stage characterized by morphological changes observed in the developing cells. In stage 1, the cells extend lamellipodia and in stage 2 their lamellipodia develop into immature neurites. In stage 3 one neurite elongates rapidly to form an axon and in stage 4 the remaining immature neuritis elongate to form dendrites. In stage 5 synaptic contacts are formed and a neuronal network is established (1).
Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunoprecipitation. Other applications not tested.
Western Blot: 1:1000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4 degrees C for short-term only. For long-term storage, aliquot and store at -20 degrees C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20 degrees C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
