DAZL (Deleted in Azoospermia-like) [DAZL/4253]



Specific for human DAZL, a member of the DAZ (deleted in azoospermia) family of RNA binding proteins. DAZL is expressed in fetal and adult testes and ovaries, and is believed to play a role in germ cell development. In adult germ cells, the expression of DAZL is localized to the cytoplasm. Mutations in this gene have been linked to severe spermatogenic failure and infertility in males. Clone DAZL/4253 recognizes DAZL at its C terminus, and is used in detection of DAZL expression by various methods.

  • RNA-binding protein, which is essential for gametogenesis in both males and females. Plays a central role during spermatogenesis. Acts by binding to the 3'-UTR of mRNA, specifically recognizing GUU triplets, and thereby regulating the translation of key transcripts (By similarity).

Known Applications & Suggested Dilutions

  • Immunofluorescence (1-2ug/ml)
  • Western Blot (1-2ug/ml)
  • ,Immunohistochemistry (Formalin-fixed) (1-2ug/ml for 30 minutes at RT),(Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires heating tissue sections in 10mM Tris with 1mM EDTA, pH 9.0, for 45 min at 95 &degC followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes),Optimal dilution for a specific application should be determined.
