A synthetic peptide from human nNOS conjugated to blue carrier protein was used as the antigen. The peptide is homologous in mouse and shares 96% identity with rat's sequence.
BNOS, NOS type I, Neuronal NOS, N-NOS, nNOS, Constitutive NOS, NC-NOS, Nitric oxide synthase
FUNCTION: Produces nitric oxide (NO) which is a messenger molecule with diverse functions throughout the body. In the brain and peripheral nervous system, NO displays many properties of a neurotransmitter. Inhibitory transmitter for non-adrenergic and non-cholinergic nerves in the colorectum.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cell membrane, sarcolemma; Peripheral membrane protein. Cell projection, dendritic spine. Note=In skeletal muscle, it is localized beneath the sarcolemma of fast-twitch muscle fiber by associating with the dystrophin glycoprotein complex. In neurons, enriched in dendritic spines.
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Isoform N-NOS-1 is expressed in brain and colorectum. Found in the Auerbach's plexus of the enteric nervous system. Isoform PNNOS is expressed in the penis, urethra, prostate, and skeletal muscle, and coexists with the cerebellar nnos in the pelvic plexus, bladder and liver, and is detectable in the cerebellum.
Maintain the lyophilised/reconstituted antibodies frozen at -20C for long term storage and refrigerated at 2-8C for a shorter term. When reconstituting, glycerol (1:1) may be added for an additional stability. Avoid freeze and thaw cycles.
