|Application Note||Flow Cytometry : 0.5-1ug/million cells|
Immunofluorescence : 0.5-1.0 µg/ml
Western Blotting : 0.25-0.5ug/ml
Immunoprecipitation : 0.5-1 µg/500ug protein lysate
Immunohistology (Frozen & Formalin-fixed) : 0.5-1.0 µg/ml for 30 minutes at RT

|Format||0.5 ml at 200ug/ml with BSA and azide|
|Storage||Store at 2 to 8°C.Antibody is stable for 24 months.|
|Precautions||MyoD1 (Rhabdomyosarcoma Marker) Antibody - With BSA and Azide is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||BHLHC1, MYF3, MYOD|
|Function||Acts as a transcriptional activator that promotes transcription of muscle-specific target genes and plays a role in muscle differentiation. Together with MYF5 and MYOG, co-occupies muscle-specific gene promoter core region during myogenesis. Induces fibroblasts to differentiate into myoblasts. Interacts with and is inhibited by the twist protein. This interaction probably involves the basic domains of both proteins (By similarity).|

Recognizes a phosphor-protein of 45kDa, identified as MyoD1. The epitope of this MAb maps between amino acid 180-189 in the C-terminal of mouse MyoD1 protein. It does not cross react with myogenin, Myf5, or Myf6. Antibody to MyoD1 labels the nuclei of myoblasts in developing muscle tissues. MyoD1 is not detected in normal adult tissue, but is highly expressed in the tumor cell nuclei of rhabdomyosarcomas. Occasionally nuclear expression of MyoD1 is seen in ectomesenchymoma and a subset of Wilm’s tumors. Weak cytoplasmic staining is observed in several non-muscle tissues, including glandular epithelium and also in rhabdomyosarcomas, neuroblastomas, Ewing’s sarcomas and alveolar soft part sarcomas.
