Prox1, the homolog of Drosophila Prospero, is a homeobox-containing transcription factor that binds and functions as a co-receptor of liver receptor homolog 1 (LRH1/NR5A2). It is a specific marker for lymphatic endothelial cells, as well as hepatoblasts and hepatocytes. Human Prox1 shares 97% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat Prox1.
Other species have not been tested.
Recognizes Prox1. The antibody is useful for identifying Prox1 expressing cells during the development of many areas of the nervous system including the dorsal spinal cord, ganglionic eminences, thalamus and hippocampus.
Synthetic peptide from the C-terminus of mouse Prox1.
1:2,000-1:10,000 with overnight incubation on 4% paraformaldehyde fixed, frozen tissue sections. For embryos immersion fixation is recommended. For older animals perfusion fixation is recommended. Suggested permeabilization solution is 0.1% Triton X100. Suggested blocking buffer is PBS with 0.1% Triton and 10% serum.
