Neurons are the basic functional unit of the nervous system. They can be identified in neural cell cultures and nervous tissue by immunodetection of specific intracellular or cell surface proteins. It is also possible to use neuronal cell markers to classify neurons based on neurotransmitter expression (for example, as being cholinergic, dopaminergic, GABAergic, glutamatergic, glycinergic, or serotonergic) and to label the distinct morphological regions (dendrite, axon, synapse, growth cone) of neurons. This interactive resource tool lists the markers that are commonly used to identify neurons and neuronal structures. The neuronal cell markers are linked directly to our antibody offerings, making it easy for you to find highly sensitive and specific antibodies for staining neurons by immunohistochemistry or immunocytochemistry.
