These MAP2 antibodies are excellent for staining neuron perikarya and dendrites. In contrast tau is found predominantly in neuronal axons. Check out our MAP2 customer publications.

Image: Mixed neuron/glia cultures stained with MAP-2 (green) and also rabbit antibody of neurofilament NF-H (red). Since the NF-H protein is largely expressed in neuronal axons, while the MAP2 is only found in neuronal dendrites and perikarya, there is little overlap between these two staining patterns. DNA stain shows nuclei of neurons and non-neuronal cells (blue). Inset Image: Western blot of whole rat brain lysate probed with  antibody to MAP2. Note that the strong single band running at about 280Kda corresponds to MAP2. Protocols on data-sheet.
