Detection of Human/Mouse/Rat NRAGE by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of Jurkat human acute T cell leukemia cell line, 293T human embryonic kidney cell line, A20 mouse B cell lymphoma cell line, and L6 rat myoblast cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human/Mouse/Rat NRAGE Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3835) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). A specific band was detected for NRAGE at approximately 110 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted using Immunoblot Buffer Group 2.

Neurotrophin receptor-interacting MAGE homolog (NRAGE, also known as MAGE-D1 or Dlxin-1) is a ubiquitously expressed cytosolic protein that is a member of the melanoma-associated antigen (MAGE) family. The 778 aa human NRAGE protein contains a segment with 22 repeats of a W(P/Q)xPxx motif, followed by a MAGE domain. In the brain, NRAGE interacts with p75NTR, blocks cell cycle progression and facilitates NGF-dependent apoptosis. Over amino acids 73‑254, human NRAGE shares 87% and 73% aa identity with mouse and rat NRAGE, respectively.
