In direct ELISAs, approximately 15% cross-reactivity with recombinant human (rh) Cerberus-1 is observed and less than 1% cross-reactivity with rhDAN and recombinant mouse Gremlin is observed.
Reconstitute at 0.2 mg/mL in sterile PBS.
Endoxin level is <0.10 EU per 1 µg of the antibody by the LAL method.
Chicken Caronte, the ortholog of mammalian Cerberus, is a member of the Cerberus/DAN family of secreted glycoproteins. There are at least 5 Dan Domain (DAND) family members including DAN (DAND1), Gremlin/Drm (DAND2), PRDC (Protein Related to Dan and Cerberus; DAND3), Cerberus (DAND4), and Coco (DAND5). Caronte is expressed in the left paraxial mesoderm and is the molecule responsible for transducing left-sided positional information from the node to the periphery of the lateral plate mesoderm (LPM) during chicken embryonic development. Caronte functions as a BMP antagonist, inducing Nodal and downstream genes in the LPM by interfering with the repressive activity of bilaterally-produced BMPs. In addition, antagonism of BMPs by Caronte induces the expression of the Lefty gene in the midline.
