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

Application Abreviews Notes
ChIP Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 37 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 30 kDa).Can be blocked with Human Hex peptide (ab28465).
IHC-FoFr 1/100.


  • FunctionRecognizes the DNA sequence 5'-ATTAA-3'. Transcriptional repressor. May play a role in hematopoietic differentiation. Establishes anterior identity at two levels; acts early to enhance canonical WNT-signaling by repressing expression of TLE4, and acts later to inhibit NODAL-signaling by directly targeting NODAL.
  • Tissue specificityLiver and promyelocytic leukemia cell line HL60.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
  • Developmental stageExpressed during hematopoiesis.
  • Cellular localizationNucleus.

  • Anti-Hex antibody - ChIP Grade (ab34222) at 1 µg/ml + Liver (Mouse) Tissue Lysate at 10 µg

    Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97080) at 1/5000 dilution

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 30 kDa
    Observed band size : 37 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 42 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 30 seconds
  • ab34222 staining Hex in mouse brain tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (PFA perfusion fixed frozen sections). Tissue from 4% PFA perfused animals underwent overnight fixation in 4% paraformaldehyde, cryoprotected in 30% sucrose and cut using cryostat.The primary antibody was diluted, 1/100 (PBS + 0.3% Triton X100) and incubated with sample for 18 hours at 20°C. An Alexa Fluor®488 conjugated goat polyclonal to rabbit IgG at 1/1000 dilution, was used as secondary.
