ICC staining of purified anti-Pax6 antibody (clone AD2.35) on mouse primary astrocytes. The cells were fixed with 4% PFA, permeabilized with a buffer containing 0.1% Triton X-100 and 0.25% BSA, and blocked with 2% normal goat serum and 0.02% BSA. The cells were then stained with 1 µg/mL of the primary antibody for 1 hour at room temperature, followed by incubation with 2.5 µg/ml of Alexa Fluor® 594 conjugated anti-mouse IgG (Cat. No. 405326) for 1 hour at room temperature. Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated anti-GFAP antibody (clone SMI 25, Cat. No. 837508) was used to stain astrocytes. Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI. The image was captured with a 60X objective. Scale bar: 50 µm.

Description

Paired box protein Pax6 is a homeobox transcription factor belonging to a family of 9 proteins, which all share a 128 amino-acid DNA binding domain termed “paired domain” (PD). Homologs of Pax proteins exist in worms, flies, frogs, fish and birds. The Pax family has been shown to play important roles in organogenesis and development. The Pax family of proteins modify transcription activity and protein expression levels primarily through binding to the regulatory region of downstream genes. In addition to the PD domain, some Pax proteins, including Pax6, possess another DNA binding domain, a homeodomain (HD), which preferentially binds to sequence with “TAAT” core motif.

Pax6 was first identified by its homology to the Drosophila Paired gene and is mainly expressed in the central nervous system, eye and pancreas. Mutations of Pax6 result in severe eye development abnormalities. Human heterozygous mutations of Pax6 result in aniridia, blindness, cataract and colobomas. In mice, homozygous Pax6 mutations lead to complete loss of ocular structure. In Drosophila, mutation of Pax6 homolog results in an eyeless phenotype. In addition to the eye development, pancreas abnormalities have been also observed in Pax6 deficiency mice.

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunocytochemistry. For immunocytochemistry, a concentration range of 2.5 - 5.0 μg/mL is recommended. For formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded immunohistochemistry, a concentration range of 5.0 - 10 µg/ml is suggested. For frozen tissue immunohistochemistry, a concentration range of 1.0 - 10.0 µg/mL is suggested. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 5.0 - 10 µg per ml. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

Reactivity is weaker in Rat compared to Human and Mouse.
