Immunohistochemistry Netrin-4 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse brain (nucleus accumbens) using digoxigenin-conjugated Goat Anti-Mouse Netrin-4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1132) at 5 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Digoxigenin Alexa Fluor® 488-conjugated Monoclonal Antibody (green; Catalog # IC7520G) at a final concentration of 1X (1:10 dilution) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to vasculature. View our protocol for Fluorescent IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

Digoxigenin is a hapten, a small molecule with high immunogenicity, that is used in many molecular biology applications similarly to other popular haptens such as DNP (dinitrophenol), biotin, and fluorescein. Digoxigenin is a steroid found exclusively in the flowers and leaves of the plant genus Digitalis. Digoxigenin can be introduced into proteins and nucleic acids for detection in a variety of assays, including ELISA, Immunohistochemistry, in situ hybridization, Southern blot, and Western blot.
