Human NG2/MCSP Antibody Summary
Accession # Q6UVK1
Please Note: Optimal dilutions should be determined by each laboratory for each application. General Protocols are available in the Technical Information section on our website.
Detection of Human NG2/MCSP by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of A375 human melanoma cell line and SK-Mel-28 human malignant melanoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human NG2/MCSP Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2585) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for NG2/MCSP at approximately 300 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Western Blot Shows Human NG2/MCSP Specificity by Using Knockout Cell Line. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma parental cell line and NG2/MCSP knockout HeLa cell line (KO). PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human NG2/MCSP Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF2585) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF017). A specific band was detected for NG2/MCSP at approximately 300 kDa (as indicated) in the parental HeLa cell line, but is not detectable in knockout HeLa cell line. GAPDH (Catalog # AF5718) is shown as a loading control. This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

NG2 (neuron/glia-type 2 antigen; also MCSP/melanoma chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan) is a 250‑500 kDa type I integral membrane proteoglycan found on synantocytes (NG2+ glia), vascular pericytes, chondroblasts, macrophages and melanoma cells. It binds multiple components of the ECM, and serves as a ligand for alpha 3 beta 1 and alpha 4 beta 1 integrins. Mature human NG2 is 2293 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a large 2195 aa extracellular region (aa 30‑2224) and a short 79 aa cytoplasmic tail. NG2 is variably glycanated. Without proteoglycan, NG2 is expressed as a 250 kDa glycoprotein. Juxtamembrane proteolysis generates a soluble ECD that noncovalently associates with the transmembrane fragment. Over aa 1583‑2224, human NG2 is 81% aa identical to both mouse and canine NG2.
