Soma Markers

Neurons are specialized cells of the nervous system designed to transmit chemical and electrical signals throughout the body. A biological marker is an indicator of a biological state. Often times it may be difficult to take biopsy or living tissue sample for medical diagnostics or scientific research purposes. Neuronal markers make it easier to look into the nervous system. Neuronal markers are present in the brain and peripheral nervous system and are indicative of certain neuronal diseases, statuses, or conditions. Neuronal markers are typically very effective diagnostic or prognostic tools in the treatment of sickness. These biomarkers can also be used to identify neural cells or detect expression details of certain types of molecules. Neuron markers sold by Abcore Inc. can be categorized into axon markers, dendrite markers, growth cone markers, soma markers, and synapse markers. The soma is the main head of the nerve. It is where the signals from the dendrites are joined and passed on. The soma holds the nucleus of the nerve cell. Neither the soma nor the nucleus play an active role in the transmission of neuronal signals, however, they do play a major role in cell maintenance and functionality.

Anti-choline acetyltransferase antibody binds against choline acetyltransferase. Choline acetyltransferase catalyzes the synthesis of acetylcholine from acetyl CoA and choline at the cholinergic synapses. Defects in CHAT are the cause of congenital myasthenic syndrome with episodic apnea. Congenital myasthenic syndrome with episodic apnea is a rare form of apnea that is present in infants. The disease is characterized by muscular weakness, secondary respiratory infections, poor infant sucking, fluctuating ptosis (eyelid droopiness), and fatigue. Anti-GIRK2 antibody binds against the target G protein activated inward rectifier potassium channel 2. GIRK2 is localized on the membrane of cells and expressed in the cerebellum and the pancreas. The G protein activated inward rectifier potassium channel 2 is a potassium channel involved in the regulation of insulin secretion b glucose and other neurotransmitters that act through G-protein coupled receptors. This particular receptor is characterized by its unique ability to allow potassium to flow into a cell rather than out of the cell.
