Anti-Emx1 antibody (ab32925)

This fast track antibody is not yet fully characterized. It is subject to these terms and conditions.




Fast track antibodies constitute a diverse group of products that have been released to accelerate your research, but are not yet fully characterized. They have all been affinity purified and show high titre values against the immunizing peptide (by ELISA). Fast track terms of use

Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes
    This antibody gave a positive result in ELISA against the immunizing peptide (ab32995).

    IHC-P: 1/200. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

  • Target

    • Function
      Transcription factor, which in cooperation with EMX2, acts to generate the boundary between the roof and archipallium in the developing brain. May function in combinations with OTX1/2 to specify cell fates in the developing central nervous system.
    • Tissue specificity
      Cerebral cortex.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the EMX homeobox family.
      Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.

    Thank you for your enquiry and for your patience. It has taken some time to discuss this with our source for this antibody.

    It is unfortunately difficult to say what the lighter brown staining is exactly in the IHC image provided for ab23340. A western blot with this tissue (human spermatophore epithelial cells) would have to be run to determine if any non-specific staining is there. As this protein (RAX) is a transcription factor, and this IHC image includes the nuclear stain, DAPI, the brown/blue staining is the specific signal here. The lighter brown is cytosolic staining, which could be non specific. It may be the experiment required further optimization in this case and I am sorry we have no further information on this occasion as it has been tested externally.

    Regarding EMX1 antibodies, we have several available. However, I am sorry that regrettably non of these have been tested in IHC-Fr (cryosections).
