The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 33 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ELISA titre using peptide based assay: 1/12500.
Could play a role in cell proliferation during neuronal differentiation and in protection against cell death.
Involvement in disease
Defects in CLN8 are the cause of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis type 8 (CLN8) [MIM:600143]. A form of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis with onset in childhood. Neuronal ceroid lipofuscinoses are progressive neurodegenerative, lysosomal storage diseases characterized by intracellular accumulation of autofluorescent liposomal material, and clinically by seizures, dementia, visual loss, and/or cerebral atrophy. The lipopigment patterns observed most often in neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis type 8 comprise mixed combinations of granular, curvilinear, and fingerprint profiles. Defects in CLN8 are the cause of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis type 8 Northern epilepsy variant (CLN8NE) [MIM:610003]. A form of neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis clinically characterized by epilepsy that presents between 5 and 10 years of age with frequent tonic-clonic seizures followed by progressive mental retardation. Visual loss is not a prominent feature. Intracellular accumulation of autofluorescent material results in curvilinear and granular profiles on ultrastructural analysis.
