Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab83288 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 35 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
ELISA Use at an assay dependent dilution.


  • Function
    Transcriptional repressor that acts as a negative regulator of chondrocyte maturation. PLays a role in distal stomach development; required for proper antral-pyloric morphogenesis and development of antral-type epithelium. In concert with GSC, defines the structural components of the middle ear; required for tympanic ring and gonium development and in the regulation of the width of the malleus.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed at highest levels in cartilage, bone (osteosarcoma) and gut (small intestine and colon), whereas moderate expression is seen in trachea and brain. Expressed in visceral mesoderm and embryonic skeleton.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in NKX3-2 are the cause of spondylo-megaepiphyseal-metaphyseal dysplasia (SMMD) [MIM:613330]. It is a skeletal dysplasia characterized by disproportionate short stature with a short and stiff neck and trunk, relatively long limbs that may show flexion contractures of the distal joints, delayed and impaired ossification of the vertebral bodies, the presence of large epiphysea ossification centers and wide growth plates in the long tubular bones and numerous pseudoepiphyses of the short tubular bones in hands and feet.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the NK-3 homeobox family.
    Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.

  • Anti-BAPX1 antibody (ab83288) at 1 µg/ml + 293T cell lysate at 10 µg

    HRP conjugated anti-Rabbit IgG at 1/50000 dilution

    Predicted band size: 35 kDa
    Observed band size: 40 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)

  • ICC/IF image of ab83288 stained Hek293 cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10mins) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab83288, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899 Dylight 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
