The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/10000 - 1/50000. Detects a band of approximately 56 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 56 kDa).
1/220. ab172730-Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
Component of the Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1 complex, a complex required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of many genes, including Hox genes, throughout development. PcG PRC1 complex acts via chromatin remodeling and modification of histones; it mediates monoubiquitination of histone H2A 'Lys-119', rendering chromatin heritably changed in its expressibility. Involved in sexual development, acting as activator of NR5A1 expression.
Involvement in disease
Defects in CBX2 are the cause of 46,XY sex reversal type 5 (SRXY5) [MIM:613080]. It is a disorder of sex development. Affected individuals have a 46,XY karyotype but present as phenotypically normal females.
Flow cytometric analysis of CBX2 expression in paraformaldehyde-fixed HeLa cells using ab184968 at 1/220 dilution (red) and a rabbit IgG as negative control (green), followed by Goat anti rabbit IgG (FITC) secondary at 1/150 dilution.
