|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_060058, 16554627|
|Calculated MW||36588 Da|
|Application Notes||WDR5 antibody can be used for detection of WDR5 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 5 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||WDR5; WDR5 antibody is human specific. WDR5 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other WDR family members.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||WDR5 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||WDR5 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Contributes to histone modification. May position the N- terminus of histone H3 for efficient trimethylation at 'Lys-4'. As part of the MLL1/MLL complex it is involved in methylation and dimethylation at 'Lys-4' of histone H3. H3 'Lys-4' methylation represents a specific tag for epigenetic transcriptional activation. As part of the NSL complex it may be involved in acetylation of nucleosomal histone H4 on several lysine residues. May regulate osteoblasts differentiation.|

WDR5 Antibody: WD repeat domain 5 (WDR5) is a member of the WD repeat protein family, which is involved in a variety of cellular processes, including cell cycle progression, signal transduction, apoptosis, and gene regulation. WDR5, also known as BIG-3, is expressed in the developing growth plate, accelerates chondrocyte and osteoblast differentiation in vitro, and regulates osteoblast differentiation during embryonic bone development. WDR5 interacts with the pluripotency factor Oct4/POU5F1 and is required for the efficient formation of induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells.
