KLH conjugated synthetic peptide derived from human HOXC5
Cross reactive species
Human (Homo sapiens), Mouse (Mus musculus), Rat (Rattus norvegicus)
Water buffered solution containing 100ug/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and 0.09% sodium azide. Store at 4°C for 12 months.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
CP11; homeo box C5; homeobox C5; Homeobox protein CP11; homeobox protein Hox C5; Homeobox protein Hox-3D; Homeobox protein Hox-C5; Hox 3D; HOX3; HOX3D; HOXC5; HXC5_HUMAN; OTTHUMP00000217386.
Polyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
Cross Reactive Species details
No significant cross reactivity has been observed for this antibody for the tested species. However, note that due to limited knowledge it is impossible to predict with 100% guarantee that the antibody does not corss react with any other species.
Avoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
The Hox homeobox genes encode proteins that are transcriptional regulators with an established role in embryonic development. HoxC5 is a 222 amino acid protein that localizes to the nucleus and contains one homeobox DNA-binding domain. Existing as multiple alternatively spliced isoforms, HoxC5 functions as a sequence-specific DNA-binding transcription factor that is part of a regulatory mechanism that provides cells with positional identities during development. The gene encoding HoxC5 maps to a cluster of Hox proteins on chromosome 12 that are essential for morphogenesis. Encoding over 1,100 genes within 132 million bases, chromosome 12 makes up about 4.5% of the human genome. A number of skeletal deformities are linked to chromosome 12, including hypochondrogenesis, achondrogenesis and Kniest dysplasia.
