Neuromics loves when our customers utilize our products in their publications. One publication investigates the role of CtBP2 in cortical development in mammals. Using our Nestin (Cat.# GT15114) antibody, they find that CtBP2 is key in the maintenance and migration of neural stem and progenitor cells during cortical development in mice. Through this research, CtBP2's role in neurological development is better understood.

This new publication, uses our Tuj1 (Cat.# MO15013) antibody to explore the impact of variants in the TMEM106B gene. By knocking-out the gene in mice, they find that LAMP1-positive vacuoles are enlarged in proximal axon of motorneuron nuclei. Their evidence links the TMEM106B gene to neurological disorders.

RFP channel is depicted in red, GFP channel is depicted in green. The axon is stained with an antibody against Tuj1 (blue). Image courtesy of Patrick Luningschror, et al.
