Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

Semaphorin 4B Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total semaphorin 4B protein.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Pro101 of human semaphorin 4B protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
The semaphorin family of proteins is involved in axon guidance, cell migration, angiogenesis, and immune response. Plexins and neuropilins bind with high affinity to semaphorins to mediate their functions. Semaphorins are divided into seven classes of secreted or membrane-bound proteins. Members of Class 4 semaphorins include 4A through 4G; semaphorin 4B is a membrane-associated protein (1,2). Semaphorin 4B binds to the CLCP1 receptor and regulates cell motility (3). Furthermore, semaphorin 4B, like many other semaphorins, has a PDZ domain-binding motif at the carboxy terminus that interacts with PSD95 and localizes to the post-synaptic membrane (4).
