Background of CAD antibody

Cad regulates embryonic abdominal segment formation by zygotically activating expression of knirps (kni) and giant (gt). It plays a role in the establishment of the hindgut and in the invagination of the hindgut primordium during gastrulation. These effects on the gut are achieved by acting combinatorially at the posterior of the embryo to activate transcription of different targets, including folded gastrulation (fog), fork head (fkh) and wingless (wg).
