Chromosome 9 open reading frame 72 (C9orf72) gene is mapped to human chromosome 9p21. The gene codes for a highly conserved uncharacterized protein. It is expressed in various tissues such as cerebellum, cortex and spinal cord. C9orf72 gene contains hexanucleotide GGGGCC repeat in its noncoding region.
Uncharacterized protein C9orf72 recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)
Anti-C9orf72 antibody produced in rabbit has been used for western blotting. All Prestige Antibodies®Powered by Atlas Antibodies is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project . Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. We also provide Prestige Antibodies® protocols and other useful information. Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.

Non- coding repeat expansion in chromosome 9 open reading frame 72 (C9orf72) gene leads to familial frontotemporal lobar degeneration and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (FTLD/ALS).
Bioinformatics study states that C9orf72 protein might contain DENN (differentially expressed in normal versus neoplastic cells) domain, which helps the protein in regulating Rab-dependent intracellular trafficking. The encoded protein co-localized with Rab proteins is known to regulate endocytosis and autophagy in neurons. Cellular function of this protein remains unknown.
Features and Benefits
Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.
Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
- IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
- Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.
Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide
