|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||39052 Da|
|Other Names||Protein Wnt-4, WNT4|
|Target/Specificity||This WNT4 antibody is generated from a mouse immunized with a recombinant protein between 30-351 amino acids from human WNT4.|
|Format||Purified monoclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein G column, followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||WNT4 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors (Probable). Plays an important role in the embryonic development of the urogenital tract and the lung (PubMed:15317892, PubMed:16959810, PubMed:18179883, PubMed:18182450). Required for normal mesenchyme to epithelium transition during embryonic kidney development. Required for the formation of early epithelial renal vesicles during kidney development (By similarity). Required for normal formation of the Mullerian duct in females, and normal levels of oocytes in the ovaries (PubMed:15317892, PubMed:16959810, PubMed:18182450). Required for normal down-regulation of 3 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase in the ovary (PubMed:15317892, PubMed:16959810, PubMed:18182450). Required for normal lung development and for normal patterning of trachael cartilage rings (By similarity).|

Ligand for members of the frizzled family of seven transmembrane receptors. Probable developmental protein. May be a signaling molecule which affects the development of discrete regions of tissues. Is likely to signal over only few cell diameters (By similarity). Overexpression may be associated with abnormal proliferation in human breast tissue.
