The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Application notesWB: Use at a concentration of 1-5 µg/ml.
This antibody has only been tested in WB against the recombinant fragment used as immunogen. We have no data on the detection of endogenous protein.
Not yet tested in other applications. Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
FunctionProbably plays a structural role in chromatin. Involved in sister chromatid cohesion, possibly by interacting with the cohesin complex.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Highly expressed in heart, skeletal muscle, fetal and adult liver, fetal and adult kidney. Expressed at intermediates level in thymus, placenta, peripheral leukocyte and small intestine. Weakly or not expressed in brain, colon, spleen and lung.
Involvement in diseaseCornelia de Lange syndrome 1
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the SCC2/Nipped-B family. Contains 5 HEAT repeats.
Developmental stageIn embryos, it is expressed in developing limbs and later in cartilage primordia of the ulna and of various hand bones. Sites of craniofacial expression include the cartilage primordium of the basioccipital and basisphenoid skull bones and elsewhere in the head and face, including a region encompassing the mesenchyme adjacent to the cochlear canal. Also expressed in the spinal column, notochord and surface ectoderm sclerotome and what seem to be migrating myoblasts. Expressed in the developing heart in the atrial and ventricular myocardium and in the ventricular tubeculae but absent in the endocardial cushions. Also expressed in the developing esophagus, trachea and midgut loops, in the bronchi of the lung and in the tubules of the metanephros. Expression in organs and tissues not typically affected in CDL (e.g. the developing trachea, bronchi, esophagus, heart and kidney) may reflect a bias towards underreporting of more subtle aspects of the phenotype or problems that typically present later in life. Expressed in the mesenchyme surrounding the cochlear canal possibly reflecting the hearing impairment commonly found. Weakly or not expressed in embryonic brain.
DomainContains one Pro-Xaa-Val-Xaa-Leu (PxVxL) motif, which is required for interaction with chromoshadow domains. This motif requires additional residues -7, -6, +4 and +5 of the central Val which contact the chromoshadow domain.
