Ab50790 was purified using protein G column chromatography from culture supernatant of hybridoma cultured in a medium containing bovine IgG depleted (approximately 95%) fetal bovine serum. This antibody was filtered through a 0.22 µm membrane.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent dilution. Detects a band of approximately 34 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 43 kDa).
May play a critical role in the development of respiratory control mechanisms and in the normal growth and maturation of the lung.
Involvement in disease
Defects in LHX4 are the cause of pituitary hormone deficiency combined type 4 (CPHD4) [MIM:262700]; also known as short stature pituitary and cerebellar defects and small sella turcica. The disorder is characterized by short stature, pituitary and cerebellar defects, and small transverse depression crossing the midline on the superior surface of the body of the sphenoid bone which houses the pituitary gland. Note=A chromosomal aberration involving LHX4 may be a cause of acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Translocation t(1;14)(q25;q32) with IGHG1.
