Anti-DAZL Clone 3/11A

Deleted in Azoospermia-like (DAZL) protein plays a role in germ cell development. Mutations in this gene are linked to spermatogenic failure and infertility in males. Clone 3/11A recognizes DAZL at its C terminus, and is used in detection of DAZL expression by various methods.

Clone 3/11A used to detect DAZL expression in human ovary cells by Immunofluorescence

(B) Triple fluorescent immunohistochemistry for GDF9 (green), DAZL (blue) and BOLL (red) in 20 week human fetal ovary with DAPI as counterstain (grey). Split channel and merged images in (A) and (B) are shown as are merged images of non-immune serum negative control (NEG). Scale bars are 20μm. (C) Nuclear diameters of DAZL, BOLL and GDF9 stained germ cells indicates that GDF9 positive cells are significantly larger (p<0.001) than DAZL but not BOLL expressing cells (bars indicate mean ± sem). (D) Higher magnification merged image of GDF9/DAZL/BOLL immunohistochemistry showing one large primordial follicle is positive for both GDF9 and DAZL but other follicles are positive only for DAZL.

Clone 3/11A used to detect DAZL in ovarian and testicular tissue by Western Blot

Western analysis of 1st and 2nd trimester ovaries and testes. In both ovarian (A) and testicular (B) samples VASA (76 Kd) was not detectable in the 1st trimester samples but was present in those from the 2nd trimester. DAZL (33 Kd) was low/undetectable in 1st trimester ovaries (C) whereas it was detectable in ovarian samples from 2nd trimester and testicular samples from both 1st and 2nd trimester (D). OCT4 (42 Kd) was present in both ovaries (E) and testes (F) during both the 1st and 2nd trimester. The loading control in all cases was β-tubulin (51 Kd). (Anderson, R et al.)
