Background Information

NOS2, also named as iNOS and NOS2A, produces nitric oxide (NO) which is a messenger molecule with diverse functions throughout the body. NO is a reactive free radical which acts as a biologic mediator in several processes, including neurotransmission, antimicrobial and antitumoral activities. NOS2 is a nitric oxide synthase which is expressed in liver and is inducible by a combination of lipopolysaccharide and certain cytokines. iNOS has a very short half-life due to rapid degradation by calpain. iNOS monomer is a direct substrate of calpain I and can be cleaved by calpain I at the canonical CaM-binding site(503-532aa) of iNOS, and then a ~70 kDa band can be detected by western (PMID:11786228). This antibody is specific to NOS2.

Prasanth (Verified Customer) (08-19-2019)

This is one of the cleanest and clarity blot I ever got for iNOS. Amazing clarity and no non specific bands. I recommend this for iNOS detection by western blot.

  • Applications: Western Blot,
  • Primary Antibody Dilution: 1:1000
  • Cell Tissue Type: Mouse Fibroblast Cells

Elena (Verified Customer) (08-14-2019)

We tried this antibody with 2 cell lines and it worked just fine. We will use this in the future for other cell lines as well. The antibody produced strong bands at the suggested concentration and we diluted it further.

  • Applications: Western Blot,
