Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab7665 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
|ICC/IF||Use at an assay dependent concentration.|
|WB||1/500 - 1/2000. Detects a band of approximately 165 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 170 kDa). Incubate primary antibody blocking buffer (5% goat serum + 0.5% non-fat dry milk in PBS) other blocking buffers cause a poor signal.|

FunctionThought to act as molecular guidance cue in cellular migration, and function appears to be mediated by interaction with roundabout homolog receptors. During neural development involved in axonal navigation at the ventral midline of the neural tube and projection of axons to different regions. SLIT1 and SLIT2 seem to be essential for midline guidance in the forebrain by acting as repulsive signal preventing inappropriate midline crossing by axons projecting from the olfactory bulb. In spinal chord development may play a role in guiding commissural axons once they reached the floor plate by modulating the response to netrin. In vitro, silences the attractive effect of NTN1 but not its growth-stimulatory effect and silencing requires the formation of a ROBO1-DCC complex. May be implicated in spinal chord midline post-crossing axon repulsion. In vitro, only commissural axons that crossed the midline responded to SLIT2. In the developing visual system appears to function as repellent for retinal ganglion axons by providing a repulsion that directs these axons along their appropriate paths prior to, and after passage through, the optic chiasm. In vitro, collapses and repels retinal ganglion cell growth cones. Seems to play a role in branching and arborization of CNS sensory axons, and in neuronal cell migration. In vitro, Slit homolog 2 protein N-product, but not Slit homolog 2 protein C-product, repels olfactory bulb (OB) but not dorsal root ganglia (DRG) axons, induces OB growth cones collapse and induces branching of DRG axons. Seems to be involved in regulating leukocyte migration.
Tissue specificityFetal lung and kidney, and adult spinal cord. Weak expression in adult adrenal gland, thyroid, trachea and other tissues examined.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 CTCK (C-terminal cystine knot-like) domain.
Contains 7 EGF-like domains.
Contains 1 laminin G-like domain.
Contains 20 LRR (leucine-rich) repeats.
Contains 4 LRRCT domains.
Contains 4 LRRNT domains.
DomainThe leucine-rich repeat domain is sufficient for guiding both axon projection and neuronal migration, in vitro.
Cellular localizationSecreted. The C-terminal cleavage protein is more diffusible than the larger N-terminal protein that is more tightly cell associated.

ab7665 staining Slit2 in rat glioma cell line C6 by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence.
Cells were fixed in paraformaldehyde, blocked with 0.5% BSA for 20 minutes at room temperature, then incubated with ab7665 at a 1/80 dilution for 16 hours at 4°C. The secondary used was a TRITC conjugated goat anti-rabbit polyclonal, used at a 1/400 dilution. Nuclei are counterstained with DAPI.
