Anti-Meckelin, polyclonal antibody  (Rabbit)                  Catalog0903-7             

Product Description: Meckelin, also known as Transmembrane protein 67(TMEM67), is a 995 amino acid multi-pass membrane protein. It is widely expressed in adult and fetal tissues, expressed at higher level in spinal cord. Defects in TMEM67 are the cause of Meckel syndrome type 3 (MKS3). MKS3 is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by a combination of renal cysts. Defects in TMEM67 are also the cause of Joubert syndrome type 6 (JBTS6). JBTS is an autosomal recessive disorder presenting with cerebellar ataxia, oculomotor apraxia, hypotonia, neonatal breathing abnormalities and psychomotor delay.
