  • Function
    Sequence-specific transcription factor which is part of a developmental regulatory system that provides cells with specific positional identities on the anterior-posterior axis.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in HOXA13 are the cause of hand-foot-genital syndrome (HFGS) [MIM:140000]; also known as hand-foot-uterus syndrome. The clinical features include small feet with unusually short great toes and abnormal thumbs. Females with the disorder have duplication of the genital tract.
    Defects in HOXA13 are the cause of Guttmacher syndrome (GUTTS) [MIM:176305]. Guttmacher syndrome is a dominantly inherited combination of distal limb and genital tract abnormalities. It has several features in common with hand-foot-genital syndrome, including hypoplastic first digits and hypospadias. Typical features not seen in hand-foot-genital syndrome include postaxial polydactyly of the hands and uniphalangeal second toes with absent nails.

  • IHC image of ab106503 staining in human skin 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 EDTA buffer (pH9, epitope retrieval solution 2) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab106503, 5µg/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.
