The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/250 - 1/500.
1/200 - 1/500. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
FunctionMay play a major role in the structural organization and calcification of developing enamel.
Tissue specificityExpressed in the tooth follicle.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in FAM83H are the cause of amelogenesis imperfecta type 3 (AI3) [MIM:130900]. AI3 is an autosomal dominant hypomineralized form of amelogenesis imperfecta, a defect of enamel formation. AI3 is characterized by enamel of normal thickness, but soft and with cheesy consistency. Enamel is lost from tooth soon after eruption.
