N56/21 immunofluorescence staining of cerebellar cortex from FGF14 wild-type (left) and knockout (right) mice. ml: molecular layer; pc: Purkinje cell layer; igl: internal granule cell layer; wm: white matter.
Fibroblast growth factor 14, FHF4 or FGF14 is encoded by FGF14. FHF4 is a member of the fibroblast growth factor homologous factors family (a subfamily of fibroblast growth factors.). FHFs have a role in regulation of voltage fated sodium channels (Nav channels) and are thought to be involved in nervous system development. FGF14 in found in both the hippocampus and the cerebellum localizes to the axon initial segment. Diseases associated with FGF14 include Spinocerebellar Ataxia and Autosomal Dominant Cerebellar Ataxia.
Fusion protein amino acids 1-252 (full-length) of mouse FGF14b (also known as fibroblast growth factor homologous factor 4b or FHF4b, accession number O89096); Human: 98% identity (247/252 amino acids identical); Mouse: 100% identity (252/252 amino acids identical)
Store at ≤ -20 C for long term storage. For short term storage, store at 2-8 C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the vial prior to removing the cap.
Cross-reacts with FGF14a and FGF14b Does not cross-react with FGF11, FGF12 or FGF13
Each new lot of this antibody is tested to confirm that it shows the expected immunoperoxidase-diaminobenzidine / immunofluorescence staining pattern when used to stain brain sections.
These antibodies are to be used as research laboratory reagents and are not for use as diagnostic or therapeutic reagents in humans.
