Neurobiology, the study of the structure and function of the nervous system, is a multidisciplinary field encompassing neuroscience, molecular biology, cell biology, physiology and behavior. Research focuses on how the nervous system circuitry processes and facilitates behavior as well as generates thought and memory. In addition, studies also concentrate on impairment of the nervous system.

Bethyl’s neurobiology portfolio consists of more than 5,300 antibodies. All antibodies have been manufactured on-site by Bethyl scientists. Our rigorous validation process ensures that the antibody will work in the applications outlined on the datasheet. These applications include: Western blot, immunohistochemistry, immunoprecipitation, immunocytochemistry, flow cytometry, proximity ligation assay, and ChIP. A Bethyl antibody is first validated for specificity in immunoprecipitation and/or western blot and if it passes our team will validate the antibody for additional applications. Our products are backed with a 100% guarantee to work in your assay, when used in under the same conditions outlined on the product datasheet, which provides confident, reliable results.

Bethyl sells a wide variety of antibodies for the study of neurobiology. Recent publications using our antibodies for neurobiology research include:

  • Developing a new mouse model for ALS research that illustrates cell death in neurons after modification of a single gene1
  • How expression of a mutant protein can lead to both ALS and dementia symptoms in mice2
  • Identifying a function for BRD4 as a mediator for transcriptional regulation leading to the formation of memory and learning3
  • Understanding the role of ubiquitin-dependent regulation in the determination of neural cell differentiation from stem cells 4
  • Identifying a pathological role for an uncharacterized transmembrane protein in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s5
