|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_005584, 4617|
|Calculated MW||28296 Da|
|Other Names||Myogenic factor 5, Myf-5, Class C basic helix-loop-helix protein 2, bHLHc2, MYF5, BHLHC2|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-MYF5 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Acts as a transcriptional activator that promotes transcription of muscle-specific target genes and plays a role in muscle differentiation. Together with MYOG and MYOD1, co-occupies muscle-specific gene promoter core region during myogenesis. Induces fibroblasts to differentiate into myoblasts. Probable sequence specific DNA-binding protein.|
