The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 - 4 µg/ml.
Recommend PFA Fixation and Triton X-100 treatment
1/50 - 1/200. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol. Use buffer at pH 6 for antigen retrieval.
FunctionAdapter protein that interacts with EDAR DEATH domain and couples the receptor to EDA signaling pathway during morphogenesis of ectodermal organs. Mediates the activation of NF-kappa-B.
Tissue specificityDetected in adult pancreas, placenta and fetal skin, and at lower levels in lung, thymus, prostate and testis.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in EDARADD 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.
