Sheep anti Human chx 10 (Visual system homeobox 2) (CT)Catalog number: X1179P
Chx10 is a 46kDa homeodomain protein of the paired-like class that is essential for development of the mammalian eye. Mutations in Chx10 cause microphthalmia, a cause of congenital blindness in humans, and the ocular retardation (or) phenotype in mice. In the developing mouse retina Chx10 is expressed in retinal progenitors, while in the mature retina, Chx10 expression becomes restricted to bipolar neurons. Concurrent with these expression patterns, the Chx10-/- (or) retina is thin due to a defect in proliferation of retinal progenitors, and lacks bipolar neurons. Chx10 is also expressed in the developing brainstem, thalamus, and spinal cord.
Synonyms: Ceh-10 homeodomain-containing homolog
Antibody raised against a recombinant protein corresponding to amino acids 264 to 361 derived from the C-terminal region of the human Chx10 protein conjugated to KLH.
Product Form: Unconjugated
Formulation: Provided as solution in phosphate buffered saline with 0.08% sodium azide
Purification Method: Ammonium Sulfate Precipitation
