  • Function
    Putative transcription factor involved in pancreas development and function.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in lymphoid and pancreatic tissues.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in MNX1 are a cause of Currarino syndrome (CURRAS) [MIM:176450]. The triad of a presacral tumor, sacral agenesis and anorectal malformation constitutes the Currarino syndrome which is caused by dorsal-ventral patterning defects during embryonic development. The syndrome occurs in the majority of patients as an autosomal dominant trait.

Thank you for the reassurance. If the IHC continues to be a problem, please contact me. Good luck!

I will send the IHC protocol for ab59795 when I receive it, hoepfully in the next day or two. As I mentioned, Abcam does not validate this antibody for IHC in-house. We do not have free samples of any of our antibodies, but ab59795 is covered by our Ab...

Thank you for sending the details of your protocol. I agree that the staining you see for both of these antibodies is not what is expected. I think what you want is shown on the datasheet for a different antibody against HB9, ab92606, showing a stain o...
