AB5535 | Anti-Sox9 Antibody

Immunohistochemistry Analysis:
Representative lot data.
Formalin Fixed Paraffin Embedded (FFPE) murine embryonic developing bone (Panels A&B) and adult murine cartilage (Panel C) tissue sections were processed using heat-induced epitope retrieval (HIER). Immunostaining was performed using a 1:500 dilution of Cat. No. AB5535, Anti-Sox9. Reactivity was detected using an Anti-Rabbit secondary antibody and HRP-DAB. Positive nuclear staining was observed in the tissue sections.

      Description Anti-Sox9 Antibody
      Background Information Sox genes comprise a family of genes that are related to the mammalian sex determining gene SRY. These genes similarly contain sequences that encode for the HMG-box domain, which is responsible for the sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Sox genes encode putative transcriptional regulators implicated in the decision of cell fates during development and the control of diverse developmental processes. The highly complex group of Sox genes cluster at a minimum of 40 different loci that rapidly diverged in various animal lineages. At present 30 Sox genes have been identified, and members of this family have been shown to be conserved during evolution and to play key roles during animal development. Some are involved in human diseases, including sex reversal.

      Entrez Gene Number
      Entrez Gene Summary The protein encoded by this gene recognizes the sequence CCTTGAG along with other members of the HMG-box class DNA-binding proteins. It acts during chondrocyte differentiation and, with steroidogenic factor 1, regulates transcription of the anti-Muellerian hormone (AMH) gene. Deficiencies lead to the skeletal malformation syndrome campomelic dysplasia, frequently with sex reversal.

      UniProt Number
      UniProt Summary FUNCTION: SwissProt: P48436 # Plays an important role in the normal skeletal development. May regulate the expression of other genes involved in chondrogenesis by acting as a transcription factor for these genes.
      SIZE: 509 amino acids; 56137 Da
      SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (Potential).
      DISEASE: SwissProt: P48436 # Defects in SOX9 are the cause of campomelic dysplasia (CMD1) [MIM:114290]. CMD1 is a rare, often lethal, dominantly inherited, congenital osteochondrodysplasia, associated with male- to-female autosomal sex reversal in two-thirds of the affected karyotypic males. A disease of the newborn characterized by congenital bowing and angulation of long bones, unusually small scapulae, deformed pelvis and spine and a missing pair of ribs. Craniofacial defects such as cleft palate, micrognatia, flat face and hypertelorism are common. Various defects of the ear are often evident, affecting the cochlea, malleus incus, stapes and tympanum. Most patients die soon after birth due to respiratory distress which has been attributed to hypoplasia of the tracheobronchial cartilage and small thoracic cage.
      SIMILARITY: SwissProt: P48436 ## Contains 1 HMG box DNA-binding domain
