The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 59 kDa.
FunctionNegative regulator of the Wnt signaling pathway. Inhibits Wnt signaling in a cell-autonomous manner and functions upstream of beta-catenin. May act via its interaction with Wnt and LRP proteins. May play a role in colorectal tumorigenesis.
Tissue specificityAbundantly expressed in heart, pancreas, prostate and ovary. Moderately expressed in lung, liver, kidney, spleen, thymus, colon and peripheral lymphocytes. Abundantly expressed in both the epidermal and dermal compartments of the hair follicle. Present in scalp skin Highly expressed in the hair follicle dermal papilla, the matrix, and the hair shaft (at protein level).
Involvement in diseaseDefects in APCDD1 are a cause of hypotrichosis simplex (HTS) [MIM:605389]. HTS is a rare form of non-syndromic hereditary hypotrichosis without characteristic hair shaft anomalies. Affected individuals typically show normal hair at birth, but hair loss and thinning of the hair shaft start during early childhood and progress with age.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the APCDD1 family.
