Involvement in disease
Haploinsufficiency of the TBX1 gene is responsible for most of the physical malformations present in DiGeorge syndrome (DGS) and velocardiofacial syndrome (VCFS) [MIM:188400, 192430]. DGS is characterized by the association of several malformations: hypoplastic thymus and parathyroid glands, congenital conotruncal cardiopathy, and a subtle but characteristic facial dysmorphology. VCFS is marked by the association of congenital conotruncal heart defects, cleft palate or velar insufficiency, facial dysmorpholgy and learning difficulties. It is now accepted that these two syndromes represent two forms of clinical expression of the same entity manifesting at different stages of life. Defects in TBX1 are a cause of DiGeorge syndrome (DGS) [MIM:188400]. Defects in TBX1 are a cause of velocardiofacial syndrome (VCFS) [MIM:192430]. Defects in TBX1 are a cause of conotruncal heart malformations (CTHM) [MIM:217095]. CTHM consist of cardiac outflow tract defects, such as tetralogy of Fallot, pulmonary atresia, double-outlet right ventricle, truncus arteriosus communis, and aortic arch anomalies.
Predicted band size : 43 kDa ab18530 recognizes a single band at ~50kDa in the mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line C3H/10T1/2 (lane 1), that approximately corresponds in size to the given molecular weight of TBX1 of 43kDa. The addition of the immunizing peptide (lane 2) blocks the interaction of the antibody with this protein, suggesting that this is a specific interaction.

ab18530 staining U-2 OS (human bone osteosarcoma epithelial cell line) cells by ICC/IF. Cells were PFA fixed and permeabilized in 0.2% Triton-100 [PBS] prior to blocking in 1% BSA for 15 minutes at 20°C. The primary antibody was diluted 1/100 and incubated with the samples for 45 minutes at 20°C. The secondary antibody was an Alexa Fluor® 647 conjugated donkey anti-rabbit, diluted 1/1000.
