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.
FunctionPlays a critical role in eye formation by regulating the initial specification of retinal cells and/or their subsequent proliferation. Binds to the photoreceptor conserved element-I (PCE-1/Ret 1) in the photoreceptor cell-specific arrestin promoter.
Tissue specificityExpressed in the developing eye and weakly expressed in the adult retina.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in RAX are the cause of microphthalmia isolated type 3 (MCOP3) [MIM:611038]. Microphthalmia is a clinically heterogeneous disorder of eye formation, ranging from small size of a single eye to complete bilateral absence of ocular tissues. Ocular abnormalities like opacities of the cornea and lens, scaring of the retina and choroid, cataractand other abnormalities like cataract may also be present.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the paired homeobox family. Bicoid subfamily. Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
