The gene encoding Fragile X mental retardation protein 1 (FMRP or FMR1), also known as premature ovarian failure 1 (POF1), contains multiple CGG sequence repeats that are positively correlated with impaired cognitive and reproductive function. FMRP may be involved in mRNA transport and synaptic protein synthesis. The gene that encodes FMRP is located in the X chromosome, and an abnormally large number of CGG repeats (200 - 1000 times) causes Fragile X syndrome due to inadequate amounts of FMRP, leading to severe learning deficiency and mental retardation.Product Details

WB - Quality tested
ICC - Validated
- Recommended Usage
Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 2.0 - 10 µg per ml. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 5.0 - 10 μg/ml is recommended. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.
- Application Notes
This antibody is effective in immunoblotting (WB) and immunocytochemistry (ICC).
The epitope for 6B8/FMRP lies between amino acids 345-350 of human FMRP. This clone does not cross react with FXR1 or FXR2 and is human specific.
This clone is also known as 6B8.
