DUX4 Monoclonal Antibody
Catalog No.: 57100 (clone P4H2)
Size: 100ug in PBS, pH 7.4. Purified by Protein G affinity chromatography.
Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSHD) is caused by the deletion of a subset of D4Z4 macro-satellite repeats on chromosome 4. Each repeat contains a retrogene encoding the double-homeobox factor DUX4. DUX4 expression is epi- genetically suppressed in differentiated tissues, and the residual DUX4 transcripts are spliced to remove the carboxyterminal domain that has been associated with cell toxicity. In FSHD individuals, the expression of the full-length DUX4 transcript is not completely suppressed in skeletal muscle and possibly other differentiated tissues.
Antigen: C-terminal 76 amino acids of DUX4 with glutathione-s-transferase (gst) tag.
Host Species: Mouse
Antibody Class: IgG1
This antibody recognizes an epitope at the C-terminus of human DUX4. It does not cross-react with DUX4c.
Immunohistochemistry: frozen or paraffin.
Positive control: human testis lysate.
See reference below for procedural details. Enduser should determine optimal concentrations for their applications.
Dilute in PBS or medium which is identical to that used in the assay system.
STORAGE AND STABILITY
This antibody is stable for at least one (1) year at -20°C.
