This antibody is predicted to react with chicken, canine, mouse based on sequence homology.
Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 30 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is tonsil tissue.
Pax-5 is a B cell specific activator protein (BSAP). In the early stages of B cell developmemt, Pax-5 influences the expression of several B-cell-specific genes, such as CD19 and CD20. Pax-5 is expressed primarily inpro-, pre-, and mature B cells, but not inplasma cells. Interestingly, Pax-5 mRNA is transiently detected in the mesencephalon and spinal cord during embryogenesis. Expression then shifts to the fetal liver and correlates with the onset of B lymphopoiesis. This indicates that Pax-5 is important in B cell development, but may also have a role in proper neuronal development.
