45x Ab-conjugated beads (S4P7 - Rat NGFB Ab-bead). PN: B311141A. One vial containing 100 µL of anti-rat NGFB conjugated to AimPlex Bead S4P7.

25x Biotin-detection Ab (Rat NGFB Biotin-dAb). PN: B311141B. One vial containing 100 µL of biotinylated anti-rat NGFB.

Lyophilized Standard Mix - Rat Group 2 Panel A, 6-Plex. PN: RG20006. One vial containing lyophilized recombinant rat RANKL, IL-12p40, IL-15, Leptin, NGFb, and VEGF.  Note: If multiple analyte kits on the above target list are ordered as a panel, only one vial of standard mix is supplied for those analyte kits.

Application: Optimal antibody pair and antigen standard for assaying Rat beta-NGF/NGFB. Can be multiplexed with other analytes in Rat Group 2. To be used in conjunction with the AimPlex Mouse/Rat Basic Kit (PN: P200201) and a diluent kit. Refer to the AimPlex Multiplex Immunoassay User Manual and kit inserts for the assay procedure.

Storage:  2-8 C in the dark.

Important: Sodium azide forms explosive compounds with heavy metals. These products contain <0.05% (w/w) azide which with repeated contact with lead and copper commonly found in plumbing drains may result in the buildup of shock sensitive compounds. Dispose in accordance with regulations from your institute.

Beta-Nerve Growth Factor (NGF-β or NGFB) is a neurotrophic factor related to BDNF, NT-3 and NT-4. NGF-β acts through its receptor β-NGFR, and is involved in the development and maintenance of the sensory and sympathetic nervous systems and is a potent neurotrophic factor that supports the growth and survivability of nerve and/or glial cellsNGF-β also is also involved in the growth, differentiation and survival of B lymphocytes. Human, mouse and rat proteins show cross-reactivity. Diseases associated with NGF include neuropathy, hereditary sensory and autonomic, typeV and neuroschistosomiasis.
