The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 - 4 µg/ml.
1/750. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval via the pressure cooker method before commencing with IHC staining protocol. Use buffer at pH 6 for antigen retrieval.
FunctionProbably plays a regulatory role in sperm development. May participate in regulation of fibrous sheath (FS) assembly by supporting the formation of disulfide bonds during sperm tail morphogenesis. May also be required to rectify incorrect disulfide pairing and generate suitable pairs between the FS constituents. Can reduce disulfide bonds in vitro in the presence of NADP and thioredoxin reductase.
Tissue specificityTestis-specific. Only expressed during spermiogenesis, prominently in round and elongating spermatids.
