Purified Mouse anti-Human Pax-6
Purified Mouse anti-Human Pax-6

LEFT: Intracellular staining of Pax-6 in neural induction of human embryonic stem (ES) cells. H9 human ES cells (WiCell, Madison, WI) were cultured in mTeSR® (Stem Cell Technologies) on plates coated with BD Matrigel™ hESC-qualified Matrix (Cat. No. 354277). Embryoid bodies (EB) were made and cultured in medium containing Knockout™ Serum Replacement (Life Technologies) without bFGF for 24 hours and then in medium containing 250 ng/ml human recombinant noggin (R&D Systems) and 10 μM SB 431542 (Tocris) for 4 more days. The EB were then plated on BD Matrigel-coated plates and grown in medium with ITS supplement (Sigma-Aldrich), noggin, and SB 431542. After growth for 21 days, the cells were collected, fixed with BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655), and permeabilized with BD Phosflow™ Perm Buffer III (Cat. No. 558050). The cells were then stained with either Purified Mouse anti-Human Pax-6 antibody (solid line histrogram) or Purified Mouse IgG2a, κ isotype control (dashed line, Cat. No. 554126). The second-step reagent was PE Goat Anti-Mouse Ig (Multiple Adsorption, Cat. No. 550589). Flow cytometry was performed on a BD LSR™ II flow cytometry system.

RIGHT: Immunofluorescent staining of Pax-6 in human embryonic stem cell-derived rosettes. H9 human ES cells (WiCell, Madison, WI) passage 54 cultured in mTeSR™1 medium (StemCell Technologies) on BD Matrigel™ hESC-qualified Matrix (Cat. No. 354277) were differentiated towards a neural stem cell lineage. Cells were fixed with BD Cytofix™ Fixation Buffer (Cat. No. 554655), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton™ X-100 [Perm Buffer III is also suitable], and stained with Purified Mouse anti-Human Pax-6 (pseudo-colored green) at 2.5 µg/mL. The second-step reagent was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse Ig (Life Technologies) and counter-staining was with Hoechst 33342 (Sigma-Aldrich, pseudo-colored blue). The images were captured on a BD Pathway™ 435 Cell Analyzer and merged using BD Attovision™ Software.

O18-1330

Pax-6 is a member of the paired box (pax) gene family whose protein products are transcription factors involved in development. Pax family members share a highly conserved DNA binding domain that contains six alpha helices (paired domain) and a homeo box domain. Pax-6 has important roles in the development of the eye, nose, central nervous system, and pancreas. Defects in Pax-6 are responsible for various eye malformations including aniridia and Peters anomaly.

The O18-1330 monoclonal antibody reacts with human Pax-6. Because the Pax-6 protein sequence is highly conserved among vertebrate species, cross-reactivity with other species is possible.

Purified
Tissue culture supernatant is purified by either protein A/G or affinity purification methods. Both methods yield antibody in solution that is free of most other soluble proteins, lipids, etc. This format provides pure antibody that is suitable for a number of downstream applications including: secondary labeling for flow cytometry or microscopy, ELISA, Western blot, etc.
