Swiss-port # P41219 Human Peripherin

Gene Symbol PRPH
Gene Full Name peripherin
Background This gene encodes a cytoskeletal protein found in neurons of the peripheral nervous system. The encoded protein is a type III intermediate filament protein with homology to other cytoskeletal proteins such as desmin, and is a different protein that the peripherin found in photoreceptors. Mutations in this gene have been associated with susceptibility to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
Function Class-III neuronal intermediate filament protein. [UniProt]
Calculated MW 54 kDa

    Immunocytochemistry: Mixed neuron / glia cultures from newborn Rat brain stained with ARG10726 anti-Peripherin antibody (green) and co-stained with chicken polyclonal antibody to NF-H  (red). A class of large neurons, like the one at the top right of this image, contain peripherin, while the majority of neurons and their processes contain NF-H and not peripherin. The blue channel reveals the localization of DNA.

    Immunofluorescence: PC-12 cells stained with ARG10726 anti-Peripherin antibody (green) at 1:2000 dilution. Hoechst (blue) for nuclear staining.

    Peripherin, one of the Class III family of intermediate filament subunit proteins, is a major component of the PC-12 cell forming a perinuclear cap, with some filaments visible in the cytoplasm.

  • ARG10726 anti-Peripherin antibody WB image

    Western blot: Whole Rat spinal cord homogenate stained with ARG10726 anti-Peripherin antibody at 1:1000 dilution. A prominent band running with an apparent SDS-PAGE molecular weight of ~57 kDa corresponds to Peripherin.

  • ARG10726 anti-Peripherin antibody WB image

    Western blot: Rat spinal cord, Mouse spinal cord, Pig spinal cord, Cow spinal cord, SH-SY5Y and PC12 cell lysates stained with ARG10726 anti-Peripherin antibody (green) at 1:10000 dilution.

    The major band at ~ 57 kDa corresponds to the major peripherin protein isoform, while other bands presumably represent protein products of alternate transcripts of the peripherin gene.
