Neuregulin‑3/NRG3 in Mouse Brain. Neuregulin‑3/NRG3 was detected in perfusion fixed frozen sections of mouse brain (hippocampus) using Goat Anti-Mouse Neuregulin‑3/NRG3 EGF-like Domain Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF753) at 5 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cell bodies and neuronal processes. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

The neuregulin (also known as heregulin) cytokine family is comprised of four genes that encode a large number of secreted or membrane-bound isoforms. All family members share an EGF-like domain that interacts with the ErbB family of tyrosine kinase receptors. The NRG1 gene is the most pleiotropic, encoding more than 14 soluble or transmembrane proteins. NRG1 isoforms can be classified into type I (neu differentiation factor, NDF; heregulin, HRG; acetylcholine receptor inducing activity, ARIA), type II (glial growth factor, GGF) and type III (sensory and motor neuron-derived factor, SMDF) isoforms. NRG proteins show distinct spatial and temporal expression patterns and play important roles during development of both the nervous system and the heart.
R&D Systems personnel manually curate a database that contains references using R&D Systems products.
The data collected includes not only links to publications in PubMed,
but also provides information about sample types, species, and experimental conditions.
