The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 35 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 35 kDa).
FunctionMay play an important role in development and maintenance of anterior structures. Isoform PTX2C is involved in left-right asymmetry the developing embryo.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in PITX2 are the cause of Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome type 1 (RIEG1) [MIM:180500]; also known as Rieger syndrome type 1. RIEG1 is an autosomal dominant defect characterized by hypodontia (partial anodontia), anal stenosis, hypertelorism, mental deficiency, agenesis of the facial bones, with malformation of the anterior chamber of the eye. Defects in PITX2 are the cause of iridogoniodysgenesis type 2 (IRID2) [MIM:137600]; also known as iridogoniodysgenesis syndrome 2 (IGDS2). It is an autosomal dominant inherited disease. Defects in PITX2 are a cause of Peters anomaly (PAN) [MIM:604229]. It is a congenital defect of the anterior chamber of the eye. Defects in PITX2 are associated with ring dermoid of cornea (RDC) [MIM:180550]. RDC is an autosomal dominantly inherited syndrome characterized by bilateral annular limbal dermoids with corneal and conjunctival extension.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the paired homeobox family. Bicoid subfamily. Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
ICC/IF image of ab98297 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab98297 at 1µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM. This antibody also gave a positive result in methanol fixed (100%, 5min) HepG2, HEK293, and MCF-7 cell lines at 1ug/ml
