Confocal immunofluorescent analysis of postnatal day 5 (P5) mouse cortex using TBR1 (D6C6X) Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 488) (green) and Neurofilament-L (C28E10) Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 594 Conjugate) #8743 (red). Blue pseudocolor = DRAQ5® #4084 (fluorescent DNA dye).Learn more about how we get our images.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
Cover sections with 4% formaldehyde dilute in 1X PBS.
NOTE: Formaldehyde is toxic, use only in fume hood.
NOTE: All subsequent incubations should be carried out at room temperature unless otherwise noted in a humid light-tight box or covered dish/plate to prevent drying and fluorochrome fading.

TBR1 (D6C6X) Rabbit mAb (Alexa Fluor® 488 Conjugate) recognizes endogenous levels of total TBR1 protein. Low levels of nuclear staining of unknown specificity have been observed in mouse small intestine, spleen, and pancreas.
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Pro415 of human TBR1 protein.
This Cell Signaling Technology antibody is conjugated to Alexa Fluor® 488 fluorescent dye and tested in-house for direct immuno fluorescence analysis in mouse tissue. This antibody is expected to exhibit the same species cross-reactivity as the unconjugated TBR1 (D6C6X) Rabbit mAb #49661.
T-box, brain, 1 (TBR1) is a transcription factor important in vertebrate embryo development. As a member of T-Box family of transcription factors, TBR1 is expressed in postmitotic glutamatergic projection neurons (1). During cortical neurogenesis, sequential expression of transcription factors Pax6, TBR2, and TBR1 regulates discrete steps in projection neuron differentiation (2). TBR1 is enriched in layer 6 of the developing cortex. In the absence of TBR1, TBR1 mutants exhibit profound defects in frontal cortex and layer 6 differentiation, suggesting that TBR1 regulates regional and laminar identity of postmitotic cortical neurons (3). Therefore, TBR1 expression can be used as a marker for postmitotic glutamatergic neurons and cortical laminar specificity.
