IHC-P Use a concentration of 2.5 µg/ml.


  • Function

    Acts as a transcriptional activator by binding to an A/T-rich sequence, the FLAT element, in the insulin gene promoter. Required for development of the roof plate and, in turn, for specification of dorsal cell fates in the CNS and developing vertebrae.
  • Tissue specificity

    Isoform 1 is expressed in many tissues. Not found in heart, liver, spleen and testis. Relatively highly expressed in fetal brain. Isoform LMX1A-4B is expressed in testis.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
    Contains 2 LIM zinc-binding domains.

  • ab139726 staining LMX1A (red) in mouse neural stem cells by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence).

    Cells were fixed with formaldehyde, permeabilized with 0.3% Triton X-100 and blocked with 3% BSA for 1 hour at 20°C. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/500 in PBS + 3% BSA + 0.3% Triton X-100) for 16 hours at 4°C. An Alexa-Fluor® 568-conjugated donkey anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) monoclonal was used as the secondary antibody.

    Blue - DAPI, Green - Nestin.
