Human Mouse Rat
Doublecortin is a microtubule-associated protein found in neuroblasts and immature neurons, especially those undergoing embryonic migrations. It was first identified as the X-chromosome-encoded gene product mutated in the human diseases Lissencephaly (in males) and Periventricular Heterotopia (in females), diseases caused by failure of neocortical neuroblast migration. The human protein itself is 360 amino acids (40,044 daltons) and contains doublecortin motifs near its N-terminus that are believed to mediate the microtubule binding.
Chickens were immunized with two synthetic peptide / keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) conjugates. These synthetic peptides corresponded to different regions of the doublecortin gene product, but are shared between the human (CAA06617.1, NCBI) and mouse (AAT58219.1, NCBI) sequences. After repeated injections, immune eggs were collected, and the IgY fractions were purified from the yolks. These IgY fractions were then affinity-purified using a peptide column, and the concentrations of the eluates adjusted to 200 ug/ml. Finally, equal volumes of these affinity-purified antipeptide antibodies were mixed, and the preparation was filter-sterilized.
