Technical Data
W1023-70
WFS1 (Wolfram Syndrome 1 (Wolframin), Wolfram Syndrome, WFRS, WFS, Wolframin, DFNA14, DFNA38, DFNA6, DIDMOAD)
Description:
WFS1 is a novel component of Wolfram syndrome, a rare form of juvenile diabetes. WFS1 plays an important role in maintaining homeostasis of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) in the pancreas. It is normally up-regulated during insulin secretion, whereas inactivation of the protein can cause ER stress. Chronic ER stress is a major involvement in Wolfram syndrome.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence, Western Blot, Immunoprecipitation and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Western Blot: 1:500-1:2000. Heat samples at 50C for 30 minutes.
Immunoprecipitation: 2ul
Immunofluorescence: 1:200
