Rabbit anti DISC1 antibody recognizes disrupted in schizophrenia 1 (DISC1), ~93 kDa protein located in the nucleus, cytoplasm and mitochondria. The DISC1 protein is widely expressed in normal tissues. It is involved in neurite outgrowth and cortical development through its interaction with a variety of proteins including lissencephaly-1 (LIS1), NudeE-like (NUDEL) and phosphodiesterase 4B.
In certain cases of schizophrenia the DISC1 gene has been found to be disrupted by a t(1;11) (q42.1;q14.3) translocation, and studies suggest that DISC1 could be a candidate susceptibility gene for this condition.
Rabbit anti DISC1 antibody has been found suitable for immunocytochemistry (ICC) at a concentration of 5μg/ml.
