Tenascin C Antibody (4C8MS) - BSA Free Summary

Tenascin C is an extracellular matrix protein that is expressed in various tissues during development, disease or injury. Tenascin C inhibits HIV infection in immune cells by binding to a chemokine coreceptor site on the HIV-1 envelope protein, thereby blocking the virus' entry into the host cells. Tenascin C expression in the stroma of certain tumors is often associated with a poor prognosis.
Recombinant human Tenascin C [Swiss-Prot# P24821].

Tenascin, also known as hexabrachion and cytotactin, is an extracellular matrix protein with a spatially and temporally restricted tissue distribution. It is a hexameric, multidomain protein with disulfide linked subunits of 190 to 240 kD, originally characterized as 'myotendinous antigen.' In the embryo it is present in dense mesenchyme surrounding developing epithelia and in developing cartilage and bone. In the adult, tenascin remains present in tendons and myotendinous junctions in the perichondrium and periosteum, as well as in smooth muscle. Tenascin (TN)(Erickson and Bourdon 1989, Erickson 1993) is a high molecular weight, multifunctional, extracellular matrix glycoprotein, expressed in association with mesenchymal-epithelial interactions during development and in the neovasculature and stroma of undifferentiated tumors. It has been described under a variety of names: cytotactin, hexabrachion protein, J1-200/220, myotendinous antigen (MI), neuronectin (NEC1) and glioma mesenchymal extracellular matrix (GMEM). The TN molecule is a disulfide-linked hexamer. Human TN has 3 subunits of 190, 200 and 220 kDa. It is primarily made up of 14.5 epidermal growth-factor-like repeats, 15 units similar to the fibronectin type-III-homology repeat and, at the C-terminus, has a sequence with homology to the globular domain of the beta and gamma chain of fibrinogen. Monoclonal antibody reacting specifically with tenascin is an essential tool for the localization, identification and studies on the role of the molecule in epithelial-mesenchymal and neuronal-glial interactions (Castellucci et al. 1991, Balza et al. 1993).

FAQs for Tenascin C Antibody (NB110-68136). (Showing 1 - 2 of 2 FAQs).

  1. One of our clients is looking for antibodies against tenascin C and fibronectin that could be used for FFPE rat tissues. These antibodies should exclusively recognize tenascin C and fibronectin and do not cross react with each other. Can you inform me if you have these antibodies?
    • Here is a link to Tenascin C antibodies we have validated in rat tissues for IHC-P Here are antibodies we have validated in fibronectin in rat tissues for IHC-P
  2. I would like to see image of WB to see the isoforms of the tenascin NB110-68136.
    • I am afraid we do not have notes or images on the westerns for this antibody. There are 2 publications that do have a double band in westerns for this antibody: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3680762/. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1868127/. We have 2 Tenascin C antibodies that have been validated in mouse for western blot but none with images.
