Detection of Human CRX by Western Blot.
Western blot shows lysates of Y‑79 human retinoblastoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human CRX Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7085) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for CRX at approximately 38 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
CRX in Y‑79 Human Cell Line.
CRX was detected in immersion fixed Y‑79 human retinoblastoma cell line using Sheep Anti-Human CRX Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7085) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red, upper panel; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue, lower panel). Specific staining was localized to nuclei and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

CRX (Cone Rod homeoboX protein) is a 37-39 kDa member of the Otx family of paired-like homeodomain containing proteins. It is expressed in pinealocytes, cones, rods and rod bipolar cells, and promotes the transcription of photoreceptor cell proteins such as rhodopsin, IRBP and beta -phosphodiesterase. Although CRX may act alone, it typically binds noncovalently to both QRX and NRL, forming a transcriptional complex. Human CRX is 299 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains one DNA‑binding homeobox domain (aa 39-98). There is one isoform variant that shows a deletion of aa 146-149. Over aa 166-299, human CRX shares 97% aa identity with mouse CRX.
