  • Target

    • FunctionMay be involved in the regulation of the lipid composition of sperm membranes during the maturation in the epididymis.
    • Tissue specificityEpididymis.
    • Involvement in diseaseDefects in NPC2 are the cause of Niemann-Pick disease type C2 (NPDC2) [MIM:607625]. A lysosomal storage disorder that affects the viscera and the central nervous system. It is due to defective intracellular processing and transport of low-density lipoprotein derived cholesterol. It causes accumulation of cholesterol in lysosomes, with delayed induction of cholesterol homeostatic reactions. Niemann-Pick disease type C2 has a highly variable clinical phenotype. Clinical features include variable hepatosplenomegaly and severe progressive neurological dysfunction such as ataxia, dystonia and dementia. The age of onset can vary from infancy to late adulthood.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NPC2 family.

    • Anti-Niemann Pick C2 antibody (ab64183) at 1 µg/ml + Human testis tissue lysate - total protein (ab30257) at 10 µg

      Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution
      developed using the ECL technique

      Performed under reducing conditions.

      Predicted band size : 16 kDa
      Observed band size : 20 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
      Additional bands at : 41 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

      Exposure time : 10 minutes
    • IHC image of ab64183 staining in Human testis formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab64183, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

      For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
