Stargardt Disease

Stargardt disease (STGD) is the most prevalent inherited macular dystrophy and is associated with disease-causing sequence variants in the gene ABCA4. Significant advances have been made over the last 10 years in our understanding of both the clinical and molecular features of STGD1, and also the underlying pathophysiology, which has culminated in ongoing and planned human clinical trials of novel therapies.(1) Mutations in four genes have been linked with Stargardt disease: ABCA4, ELOVL4, PROM1, CNGB3.

Important Targets related to Stargardt disease

The following targets are directly related to research on Stargardt disease. Click on the links to see available antibodies, kits, proteins, and tools.

ABCA4 Antibodies

Autosomal recessive retinal diseases caused by mutations in the ABCA4 gene are being considered for gene replacement therapy. All individuals with ABCA4-disease show macular degeneration.(2)

Product Reactivity Clonality Application Cat. No. Quantity Relevance ProductGrid: uniqueid
anti-ABCA4 antibody (ATP-Binding Cassette, Sub-Family A (ABC1), Member 4) Cow Monoclonal IHC, WB ABIN361347 100 μL element-ABIN361347
anti-ABCA4 antibody (ATP-Binding Cassette, Sub-Family A (ABC1), Member 4) (AA 2250-2263) Human Polyclonal ELISA, WB ABIN343052 100 μg element-ABIN343052

ELOVL4 Antibodies

Autosomal dominant Stargardt macular dystrophy caused by mutations in the Elongation of Very Long Chain fatty acids (ELOVL4) gene results in macular degeneration, leading to early childhood blindness.(3)

PROM1 Antibodies

Prominin-1 (Prom1) is a transmembrane glycoprotein, which is expressed in stem cell lineages, and has recently been implicated in cancer stem cell survival. Mutations in the Prom1 gene have been shown to disrupt photoreceptor disk morphogenesis and cause an autosomal dominant form of Stargardt-like macular dystrophy (STGD4).(4)
