Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab9743 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent dilution. PubMed: 17192470
WB Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.2 µg/ml.
ELISA Use a concentration of 0.5 µg/ml. Allows the detection of 0.2 - 0.4 ng/well of recombinant mFGF-9 (using 100µl/well antibody solution).
Neutralising Use a concentration of 0.025 - 0.06 µg/ml. for one-half maximal inhibition [ND50] of the biological activity of mFGF-9 (1.5 ng/ml).


  • FunctionMay have a role in glial cell growth and differentiation during development, gliosis during repair and regeneration of brain tissue after damage, differentiation and survival of neuronal cells, and growth stimulation of glial tumors.
  • Tissue specificityGlial cells.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in FGF9 are the cause of multiple synostoses syndrome type 3 (SYNS3) [MIM:612961]. Multiple synostoses syndrome is an autosomal dominant condition characterized by progressive joint fusions of the fingers, wrists, ankles and cervical spine, characteristic facies and progressive conductive deafness.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the heparin-binding growth factors family.
  • Post-translational
    Three molecular species were found (30 kDa, 29 kDa and 25 kDa), cleaved at Leu-4, Val-13 and Ser-34 respectively. The smaller ones might be products of proteolytic digestion. Furthermore, there may be a functional signal sequence in the 30 kDa species which is uncleavable in the secretion step.

  • ab9743 staining FGF9 in mouse lymph node tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections). The sections were fixed in paraformaldehye prior to blocking with 10% serum for 1 hour at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/100 and incubated with the sample for 12 hours at 4°C. An HRP-conjugated Goat anti-Rabbit polyclonal was used as the secondary antibody, diluted 1/200.
