ZooMAb antibodies represent an entirely new generation of recombinant monoclonal antibodies.
Each ZooMAb antibody is manufactured using our proprietary recombinant expression system, purified to homogeneity, and precisely dispensed to produce robust and highly reproducible lot-to-lot consistency. Only top-performing clones are released for use by researchers. Each antibody is validated for high specificity and affinity across multiple applications, including its most commonly used application. ZooMAb antibodies are reliably available and ready to ship when you need them.

Anti-Doublecortin, clone 3F11 ZooMAb®, Cat. No. ZRB1863, is a recombinant Rabbit monoclonal antibody that detects Doublecortin and tested for use in Western Blotting, Immunofluorescence, Immunocytochemistry, and Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin).
Neuronal migration protein doublecortin (UniProt: O43602; also known as Doublin,Lissencephalin-X, Lis-X) is encoded by the DCX (also known as DBCN, LISX) gene (Gene ID: 1641) in human. Doublecortin is a microtubule-associated protein that is required for initial steps of neuronal dispersion and cortex lamination during cerebral cortex development. It is expressed almost exclusively in immature neurons. Hence, it has emerged as an important marker of neurogenesis. It is highly expressed in newly produced cells in the neurogenic zones; the sub ventricular zone along the lateral ventricle and the subgranular zone (SGZ) of the dentate gyrus. Doublecortin binds to microtubules in migrating cells and as a result promote the movement of these cells. It is reported to direct neuronal migration by regulating the organization and stability of microtubules. Doublecortin may act by competing with the putative neuronal protein kinase DCLK1 in binding to a target protein and may participate in a signaling pathway that is crucial for neuronal interaction before and during migration. It undergoes phosphorylation by MARK1, MARK2, and PKA and the phosphorylation regulates its ability to bind microtubules. Doublecortin is reported to be involved in cancer metastasis where unstable interactions between doublecortin and microtubules destabilize cytoskeletal organization leading to disorganized movements of cells that can lead to the uncontrolled migration of cancer cells. Mutations in DCX gene are reported to cause abnormal migration of neurons during development and disrupt the layering of the cortex, leading to epilepsy, cognitive disability, subcortical band heterotopia. This ZooMAb® recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
