Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting, IF-F=Immunofluorescence (Frozen)
Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology: Zebrafish.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Musashi Antibody detects endogenous levels of total Musashi 1 and 2 protein.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues of human Musashi. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.

Confocal immunofluorescence images of the subventricular zone of rat striatal sections labeled with Musashi Antibody (red) and Phospho-S6 Ribosomal Protein (Ser235/236) (2F9) Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate) #4854 (green). Proliferating/mitotic cells are labeled with Phospho-Histone H3 (Ser10) (6G3) Mouse mAb #9706 (blue).
Musashi-1 and Musashi-2 are RNA-binding proteins which play a role in asymmetric cell division of ectodermal precursor cells by regulating the translation of target mRNA. Both family members augment Notch signaling and repress the translation of m-Numb, a protein that positively modulates differentiation of neural stem cells into neurons. Thus, Musashi contributes to the maintenance of neural stem cells (1). While Musashi-1 is frequently used as a marker for proliferating neural precursor cells, it is also expressed in epithelial stem cells including intestinal and mammary gland stem cells (2-4).
