Detection of Human NELL1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of COLO 205 human colorectal adenocarcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human NELL1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5487) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for NELL1 at approximately 140 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

(neural EGF-like like protein 1) is an 89 kDa
(predicted) member of the EGF-like domain containing family, Laminin
G/N-TSP1/Pentraxin gene superfamily of molecules. When secreted, NELL1 exists
as a phosphoglycoprotein that can add as much as 50 kDa to the calculated MW.
NELL1 has restricted expression, being limited to pre-B cells and osteoblasts,
where it apparently promotes osteoblast maturation and bone formation. In
tumors, it is found in neuroblastoma-derived cells. NELL1 is both secreted and
retained intracellularly where it is phosphorylated by PKC. The human NELL1
precursor is 810 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a 16 aa signal
sequence plus a 794 aa mature region. The mature region possesses an N-terminal
TSP domain (aa 81-230), two VWFC domains (aa 271-390), six consecutive EGF-like
domains (aa 391-631), and three additional C-terminal VWFC domains (aa
632-807). Secreted NELL1 forms a 400-420 kDa noncovalent homotrimer. Over aa
17-810, human NELL1 shares 93% aa identity with mouse and rat NELL1. Alternate
splicing generates an additional isoform of human NELL1 that lacks the fifth
