1/10 - 1/50. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Negative 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.
Abundantly 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 disease
Defects 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.
Immunohistochemical analysis of formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded Human liver tissue, labeling APCDD1 with ab171851 at 1/10 dilution, followed by peroxidase conjugation of the secondary antibody and DAB staining.
