Tuj-1-Neuronal Differentiation Marker

Our Tuj-1 antibodies are widely used and frequently referenced in customer publications. They are proven markers for Neural Progenitor and Neuronal Differentiation. Here's the latest reference:

...Tuj 1 (Neuron-specific class III beta-tubulin)-Mouse (MO15013, Neuromics Antibodies, Edina, MN)...

Immunofluorescence Method:

Cells grown on coverslips were fixed for 5 min in 4% paraformaldehydecontaining 4% sucrose in phosphate buffer saline (PBS) at 37ºC. Cells were then permeabilized with 0.2% Triton X-100 in PBS during 5 min at room temperature. After blocking (5% bovine serum albumin in PBS for 1 h), cells were incubated with the corresponding primary antibodies, and immunoreactivity was detected with the suitable fluorophore-conjugated secondary antibody before mounting on slides with Mowiol4-88 (Harland Co., UK). Confocal images were acquired using an inverted Leica TCS SP5 laser confocal microscope with a 63X Plan- Achromatic oil immersion objective and processed with LAS AF Leica Application Suite and Adobe Photoshop CS2 (Adobe Systems
Inc., CA). All images correspond to the projection of sections from a ~50μm z-stack, except for colocalization analysis where they correspond to 0.5-0.7μm single sections.

Image: Rat hippocampal neurons were fixed at 1.5 DIV and immunostained for the neuronal marker βIII-Tubulin/Tuj1 (blue).
