Mouse anti Human DAZL antibody, clone 3/11A recognizes human Deleted in azoospermia-like, also known as DAZL, DAZ homolog, DAZ-like autosomal, Deleted in azoospermia-like 1 or SPGY-like-autosomal. DAZL is a 295 amino acid ~33 kDa 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 predominantly localized to the cytoplasm.

Mutations in this gene have been linked to severe spermatogenic failure and infertility in males (Lin et al. 2001)

Storage Information

This product is shipped at ambient temperature. It is recommended to aliquot and store at -20°C on receipt. When thawed, aliquot the sample as needed. Keep aliquots at 2-8°C for short term use (up to 4 weeks) and store the remaining aliquots at -20°C.

Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
