The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 49 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
Titre using peptide based assay, 1:12500.
FunctionReceptor for EDA isoform A1, but not for EDA isoform A2. Mediates the activation of NF-kappa-B and JNK. May promote caspase-independent cell death.
Tissue specificityDetected in fetal kidney, lung, skin and cultured neonatal epidermal keratinocytes. Not detected in lymphoblast and fibroblast cell lines.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in EDAR are a cause of ectodermal dysplasia anhidrotic (EDA) [MIM:224900]; also known ectodermal dysplasia hypohidrotic autosomal recessive (HED). Ectodermal dysplasia defines a heterogeneous group of disorders due to abnormal development of two or more ectodermal structures. EDA is characterized by sparse hair (atrichosis or hypotrichosis), abnormal or missing teeth and the inability to sweat due to the absence of sweat glands. Defects in EDAR are the cause of ectodermal dysplasia type 3 (ED3) [MIM:129490]; also known as ectodermal dysplasia hypohidrotic autosomal dominant or EDA3. ED3 is an autosomal dominant condition characterized by hypotrichosis, abnormal or missing teeth, and hypohidrosis due to the absence of sweat glands.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 death domain. Contains 3 TNFR-Cys repeats.
Developmental stageFound in craniofacial tissues from embryonic day 42-53. Expressed in fetal skin 11 and 15 weeks after gestation.
