Monoclonal Antibodies Specifically Targeting Six1


CU scientists have developed monoclonal antibodies targeting the C-terminus of Six1, which is a transcription factor important for development and formation of the muscle, kidney, inner ear, and other organs. Importantly, the antibody is specific to Six1 and is not cross-reactive with other Six family members. The antibody was generated by immunizing rabbits with a C-terminal peptide that corresponds to the region from nucleotide 822 to the stop codon of full-length human Six1 cDNA. Investigators have confirmed that the antibody can be used in western blotting, immunocytochemistry, and immunohistochemistry.
