Eve may play a role in determining neuronal identity. It may be directly involved in specifying identity of individual neurons. It is a pair-rule protein required for segmentation, involved in transforming the broad, spatial, aperiodic expression patterns of the gap genes into a system of precise periodic expression patterns of the pair-rule and segmentary polarity genes.
EVE antibody can be used for detection of EVE by ELISA at 1:62500. EVE antibody can be used for detection of EVE by western blot at 0.25 μg/mL, and HRP conjugated secondary antibody should be diluted 1:50,000 - 100,000.
