  • FunctionLigand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. Wnt-3 and Wnt-3a play distinct roles in cell-cell signaling during morphogenesis of the developing neural tube.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in WNT3 are the cause of autosomal recessive tetra-amelia (ARTTRA) [MIM:273395]. Tetra-amelia is a rare human genetic disorder characterized by complete absence of all four limbs and other anomalies such as craniofacial, nervous system, pulmonary, skeletal and urogenital defects.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the Wnt family.
  • Cellular localizationSecreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.

Anti-Wnt3 antibody images

  • Wnt3 was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg MCF 7 whole cell extract, 5µg of Rabbit polyclonal to Wnt3 and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).
    The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, MCF 7 whole cell extract lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.
    Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70oC; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab32249.
    Secondary: Mouse monoclonal [SB62a] Secondary Antibody to Rabbit IgG light chain (HRP) (ab99697).
    Band: 40kDa: Wnt3.

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 40 kDa
    Observed band size : 37 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 50 kDa (possible cross reactivity).
  • IHC image of ab32249 staining in human lung adenocarcinoma formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab32249, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
