Application Abreviews Notes
  • Application notes

  • Target

    • Function

      Appears to mediate interactions between cells and the extracellular matrix. Substrate-adhesion molecule that appears to inhibit cell migration. Accelerates collagen fibril formation. May play a role in supporting the growth of epithelial tumors.
    • Tissue specificity

      Highly expressed in fetal adrenal, in fetal testis, fetal smooth, striated and cardiac muscle. Isoform XB-short is only expressed in the adrenal gland.
    • Involvement in disease

      Tenascin-X deficiency (TNXD) [MIM:606408]: TNXD leads to an Ehlers-Danlos-like syndrome characterized by hyperextensible skin, hypermobile joints, and tissue fragility. Tenascin-X-deficient patients, however, lack atrophic scars, a major diagnostic criteria for classic Ehlers-Danlos. Delayed wound healing, which is also common in classic EDS, is only present in a subset of patients. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the tenascin family.
      Contains 19 EGF-like domains.
      Contains 1 fibrinogen C-terminal domain.
      Contains 32 fibronectin type-III domains.
    • Developmental stage

      Expression levels are lower in adults than in children.
    • Cellular localization

      Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix.

    Thank you for your reply. This antibody has not been validated for use on mouse samples. It is possible that it may cross-react, but we do not have any information about how it performs on mouse cells.

    In human samples, we observe an ˜80 kDa corresponding to the XB-short isoform of Tenascin-X. Because the mouse protein is not as well characterized, I was unable to find any information about whether this isoform is conserved in mouse or not.

    What percentage gel were you using? In order to detect the full length protein at ˜460 kDa, you would need to use a very low percentage gel with a slow wet transfer. It may also help to add 0.1% SDS to the transfer buffer and keep the methanol percentage to 10% or less. Even then, I would recommend validating your transfer with a Ponceau Sstain.

    Tenascin-X is also known to form a homotrimer and to interact with other large proteins. Since these complexes would be too large to detect in WB,it is very important that your samples are fully reduced and denatured. I would recommend running a positive control with a human skin sample to help determine whetherthe antibody is not reactive with the mouse protein or not working properly in general.

    I hope this helps, please let me know if you need any additional information or assistance and I will be happy to help you further.
