The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/50 - 1/200. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Use a concentration of 1 - 4 µg/ml. Fixation/Permeabilization: PFA/Triton X-100
FunctionActs as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) which differentially activates the GTPases RHOA, RAC1 and CDC42. Plays a role in axon guidance regulating ephrin-induced growth cone collapse. Upon activation by ephrin through EPHA4, the GEF activity switches toward RHOA resulting in its activation. Activated RHOA promotes cone retraction at the expense of RAC1-and CDC42-stimulated growth cone extension.
Tissue specificityHighly expressed in brain specifically in caudate nucleus and to a lower extent in amygdala and hippocampus. Also detected in lung.
