Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded mouse testes (left) and mouse kidney (right) using DAZL (D2A4) Rabbit mAb (IHC Specific). As expected, kidney is DAZL negative.
Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded human testes using DAZL (D2A4) Rabbit mAb (IHC Specific) in the presence of control peptide (left) or antigen-specific peptide (right).
Supplied in 10 mM sodium HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and less than 0.02% sodium azide. Store at –20°C. Do not aliquot the antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalent grade water.
NOTE: Do not allow slides to dry at any time during this procedure.
For Citrate: Heat slides in a microwave submersed in 1X citrate unmasking solution until boiling is initiated; follow with 10 min at a sub-boiling temperature (95°-98°C). Cool slides on bench top for 30 min.

DAZL (D2A4) (IHC Specific) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total DAZL protein.Species Reactivity:
Human, MouseSpecies predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology:
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the carboxy terminus of human protein.
The human DAZ (Deleted in Azoospermia) gene family contains at least three members that encode RNA-binding proteins with a common RNA-recognition motif (1). An autosomal homolog of DAZ, DAZL (DAZ-like), is specifically expressed in germ cells and is essential for the specification of the germ cell lineage during embryogenesis and during gametogenesis in adults of both sexes (2,3). DAZL may function by directly recruiting poly(A)-binding proteins (PABPs) in order to activate silent mRNAs during germ cell development (2). Deletions encompassing the Y chromosomal DAZ genes are the most common molecularly defined cause of infertility in humans (4,5).
