Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 4 - 6 µg/ml.


  • Function

    Probable RNA-binding protein, which may be required during spermatogenesis. May act by binding to the 3'-UTR of mRNAs and regulating their translation.
  • Tissue specificity

    Testis specific. Not expressed in early embryos, primordial germ cells and spermatogonial cells. First expressed in the cytoplasm of spermatocytes and then persists through meiosis.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the RRM DAZ family.
    Contains 1 DAZ-like domain.
    Contains 1 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domain.

  • IHC image of BOULE/BOLL staining in human testis formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond system using the standard protocol B. 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 ab28745, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature. A donkey anti-goat biotinylated secondary antibody was used to detect the primary, and visualized using an HRP conjugated ABC 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.

  • In paraffin embedded Human Testis shows cytoplasm staining in spermatocytes, but not in spermatogonia. ab28745 (4µg/ml) staining following steamed antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6, HRP-staining.
