The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/250 - 1/500.
1/20 - 1/50. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Use a concentration of 1 - 4 µg/ml. Fixation/Permeabilization: PFA/Triton X-100
Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Very low levels in skeletal muscle. Not detected in fetal brain. Down-regulated in aggressive fibromatosis, as well as in breast and colon cancers.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in SAMD9 are the cause of normophosphatemic familial tumoral calcinosis (NFTC) [MIM:610455]. NFTC is an uncommon life-threatening disorder characterized by massive periarticular, and seldom visceral, deposition of calcified tumors.
