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
1/200 - 1/500. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol. Use buffer at pH 6 for antigen retrieval.
FunctionPlays a role in neurite development (By similarity). May play a specific role in the control of eye movement and gaze stability.
Tissue specificityExpressed in liver, kidney, pancreas and at low levels in brain and heart. Expressed in embryonic brain and developing neural retina.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in FRMD7 are the cause of nystagmus congenital X-linked type 1 (NYS1) [MIM:310700]. NYS1 is a condition defined as conjugated, spontaneous and involuntary ocular oscillations that appear at birth or during the first three months of life. Other associated features may include mildly decreased visual acuity, strabismus, astigmatism, and occasionally head nodding.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 FERM domain.
Developmental stageIn 37 day post-ovulation (dpo) embryos, expression is found in the mid- and hindbrain, regions known to be involved in motor control of eye movement, and in the ventricular zone of the forebrain. In 56 dpo embryos, expressed in the ventricular layer of the forebrain, midbrain, cerebellar primordium, spinal cord and the developing neural retina. In later development, highly expressed in postmitotic cells within the developing subplate and cortical plate.
Cellular localizationCell projection. Cell projection > growth cone. In undifferentiated neurons, located in the actin-rich regions of the cell body. In differentiated neurons, located in the actin-rich regions of the cell body and primary neurite processes but is almost absent from secondary extensions arising from the primary neurite. Also found at the actin-rich distal end of growth cones.
