General description

Oligodendrocytes and astrocytes are derived from common precursor cells, glioblasts (Sommer, 1981). O-Antigens are sulfatides, which function as differentiation markers on the surface of oligodendrocytes of the central nervous system. O4 is formed postnatally (Schachner, 1981) and is a marker for cell bodies and processes of oligodendrocytes types I and II (hairy eyeball type). During oligodendrocyte differentiation, O4 occurs in pro-oligodendrocytes, but not in O-2A-progenitor cells. O4 occurs from day 3 onwards in cell cultures of embryonic mouse brain. Anti-O4 can be used in myelination, demyelination and remyelination studies and in regeneration experiments.

Specificity

This antibody recognizes Oligodendrocyte marker O4. Also reacts with certain galactolipids in sperm.

Immunogen

Homogenate of white matter of corpus callosum from bovine brain.

Application

Anti-O4 Antibody, clone 81, Alexa Fluor488 Conjugate detects level of O4 & has been published & validated for use in ICC.
