Background informationIn contrast to the rapid early-onset weight gain seen in ob/ob mice (1-3), mutations in the tub gene lead to obesity gradually and strongly resemble late-onset obesity as seen in the human population (4). In addition to excessive deposition of adipose tissue, mice with the tub phenotype also suffer retinal degeneration and neurosensory hearing loss (4-6). The tripartite character of tubby phenotype is strikingly similar to human obesity syndromes such as Alstr鰉 (5) and Bardet-Biedl (6). A candidate for the tub gene has been described (4). A G芓 transversion in this candidate gene eliminates a donor splice site in the 3' coding region resulting in a larger transcript containing an unspliced intron (4). A second prematurely truncated mRNA transcript with the unspliced intron was found to be expressed in the brains of tubby mice at a 2-3 fold higher rate as compared to B6 mice (4). It has been postulated that the phenotypic features of tubby mice can be attributed to cellular apoptosis triggered by the expression of a mutated tub gene (4).

AdvisoryAvoid freeze/thaw cycles as they may denaturate the polypeptide chains of the antibody, thus reducing its reactivity, specificity and sensitivity. For antibodies that are in liquid form or reconstituted lyophilized antibodies small amounts could become entrapped on the seal or the walls of the tube. Prior to use briefly centrifuge the vial to gather all the solution on the bottom.
PropertiesFor facs or microscopy Alexa 1 conjugate.
ConjugationAlexa Fluor,ALEXA FLUOR® 594

DescriptionThis antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
GroupPolyclonals and antibodies
AboutPolyclonals can be used for Western blot, immunohistochemistry on frozen slices or parrafin fixed tissues. The advantage is that there are more epitopes available in a polyclonal antiserum to detect the proteins than in monoclonal sera.
