Anti-pro-BDNF Antibody


Pro-BDNF is the uncleaved precursor form of BDNF. The anti-pro-BDNF antibody was generated by using GST-fusion protein with a peptide of BDNF as the immunogen in chickens. The antibody detects pro-BDNF, but not mature BDNF.

Anti-pro-NGF Antibody


Pro-NGF is the uncleaved precursor form of NGF. The anti-pro-NGF antibody was generated by using GST-fusion protein with a peptide of NGF as the immunogen in rabbits. Unlike other antibodies generated to the mature domain of NGF, this antibody detects pro-NGF, but not mature NGF.
