Anti-Myelin Basic Protein Clone MBP2

Myelin Basic Protein (MBP) is involved in the process of myelination of nerves in the nervous system. MBP Clone 2 recognizes an epitope in the 119-131 region of MBP, useful in clinical diagnosis to detect MBP levels in human, rat and cow MBP.

Western Blot of MBP Clone 2 used to detect MBP in a neurochemical profile study of dementia patients

Western blots from white matter homogenates of myelin-associated proteins. The mean myelin basic protein (MBP) (A) levels were discretely elevated in the dementia pugilistica (DP) cases when compared with the non-demented controls (NDC). (Kokjohn, TA et al.)

Western Blot of MBP Clone 2 used in a comparative study between anti-MBP clones and anti-EP

The specificity of EP antiserum examined by Western blot(A) and immunoabsorption tests(B to1).A: Lane a, anti-whole hMBP antibody; lane b, clone 14, lane c, clone 2; lane d, EP antiserum. All antibodies detected a major 18.5-kd band and a weaker 17.2-kd band in extracts of normal human brain homogenates. (Matuso, A et al.)

Clone MBP 2 used to detect myelinated structures in MS plaques by IHC-P

Serial sections of paraffin-embedded MS tissue immunostained with anti-EP(A), clone26(B), clone2(C), clone14(D), clone12(E), or clone22(F) .Notice that only abnormal myelin tissues strongly stained by anti-EP, whereas all other antibodies strongly stain the normal myelin surrounding the plaque area. See Materials and Methods for details. (Matuso, A et al.)
