Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab105940 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
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 32 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol. PubMed: 23457544


  • FunctionMay function in cell specification, particularly in the CNS.
  • Tissue specificityExpression detected in adult brain, testis and spleen. In the testis, expressed in the germ cells of the seminiferous epithelium, in elongating spermatids and in spermatozoa. Expressed throughout the brain with highest levels in regions of the cerebral cortex, hippocampus, diencephalon, pons, medulla and cerebellum. In the embryo, expressed in the developing posterior central nervous system. First seen in the ectoderm lateral to the primitive streak, later it encompasses the neural plate. Starting at day 9.5 pc, expressed in distinct areas of spinal cord, hindbrain, midbrain and forebrain.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the NK-1 homeobox family.
    Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
  • Developmental stageIn the embryo, expressed at highest levels at day 10 with levels decreasing during further development.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated by HIPK2 in vitro.
