MSX1 in Human Ovary. MSX1 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human ovary using Mouse Anti-Human MSX1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5045) at 15 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Mouse HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS002) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to nuclei.

MSX1 (Msh homeobox homology 1) is a member of the muscle segment homoebox gene family. MSX1 is involved in limb-pattern formation, craniofacial development, odontogenesis, and tumor growth inhibition. MSX1 functions as a transcriptional repressor. MSX1 has been shown to interact with the linker histone, H1B, and repress transcription of the MyoD promoter. Chromosomal abnormalities involving MSX1 have been associated with the Wolf-Hirschhorn syndrome characterized by heart defects and mental retardation.
