ABOUT THIS ANTIBODY

anti-Parvalbumin labels .

Parvalbumin is a calcium-binding albumin protein found in brain and muscle. This antibody has relatively sparse labelling in the larval zebrafish brain. It nicely labels the olfactory epithelium, olfactory sensory nerve processes and the olfactory nerves, neuromasts of the lateral line system, amacrine cells in the retina and a subset of purkinje cells in the cerebellum and the pituitary. Parvalbumin also labels neurons in the optic tectum at adult stages (Robra et al., 2016).

Mouse monoclonal anti-Parvalbumin (IgG1) (Chemicon/Millipore, Cat#MAB1572, dilution 1:200)

Calbindin D-28k

ABOUT THIS ANTIBODY

anti-Calbindin recognises a calcium-binding protein of the EF-hand family related to calmodulin and troponin-C. This antibody labels the olfactory epithelia, trigeminal nerve, and cells in the optic tectum and pretectum.

Mouse monoclonal anti-Calbindin D-28k (IgG1) (Swant, Cat#CB300, dilution 1:200).
