Kit Summary
The Sema-3A & NRP1/Plexin A1 receptor kit can be used for immuncytochemical labeling of Sema-3A relative to its receptors, NRP1 and Plexin A1. The kit also includes secondary reagents conjugated to DyLight® 488 or DyLight® 594 for detection of primary antibodies using green (493Ex/518Em) or red (593Ex/618Em) filter sets.

Immunocytochemical labeling of Sema-3A and its receptors in aldehyde-fixed and NP-40-permeabilized NGF-differentiated PC12 cells. The cells were labeled with rabbit polyclonal anti-Sema-3A (C-terminal) (SP1221), anti-NRP1 (NP221), and anti-Plexin A1 (PP1301). The antibodies were detected using appropriate secondary antibody conjugated to either DyLight® 488 or DyLight® 594.

One family of inhibitory axon guidance molecules is the semaphorins. The semaphorins include secreted, transmembrane, and GPI-anchored extracellular molecules that are involved in regulating axon guidance by inhibiting axons from growing toward incorrect targets. Semaphorin 3A (Sema3A) may play a particularly interesting role in limiting axon regeneration since it is expressed in meningeal fibroblasts that invade the injured spinal cord and surround the glial scar. In addition, the Sema3A co-receptors, Neuropilin-1 and Plexin-A1, are expressed on axons that regenerate up to the injured region, but do not cross this Sema3A-containing region. Thus, Sema3A and its co-receptors may have important roles in regulating axon guidance during neuronal development and after neuronal injury.
