The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 48, 75 kDa.
In addition, a minor band of 24kDa is detected consistent with observations with N-terminal specific antibodies. The 75kDa band is visible in the non-transfected COS1 also (first lane) and is therefore non-specific.We call for caution when this product is used in other assays than Western blot.
Use a concentration of 5 - 10 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
FunctionInvolved in neuronal migration during development of the cerebral neocortex. May regulate the stability and proteasomal degradation of the estrogen receptors that play an important role in neuronal differentiation, survival and plasticity.
Tissue specificityExpressed in several tissues, including brain, lung, kidney and testis. In brain localizes to a fraction of cortical neurons and white matter glial cells.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in DYX1C1 may be a cause of susceptibility to dyslexia type 1 (DYX1) [MIM:127700]. A relatively common, complex cognitive disorder characterized by an impairment of reading performance despite adequate motivational, educational and intellectual opportunities. It is a multifactorial trait, with evidence for familial clustering and heritability. Note=A chromosomal aberration involving DYX1C1 has been found in a family affected by dyslexia.
