|Calculated MW||49177 Da|
|Other Names||Transcription factor AP-2 gamma, AP2-gamma, Activating enhancer-binding protein 2 gamma, Transcription factor ERF-1, TFAP2C|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the C-terminus of human AP2 gamma was used as an immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|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||AP2 gamma Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Sequence-specific DNA-binding protein that interacts with inducible viral and cellular enhancer elements to regulate transcription of selected genes. AP-2 factors bind to the consensus sequence 5'-GCCNNNGGC-3' and activate genes involved in a large spectrum of important biological functions including proper eye, face, body wall, limb and neural tube development. They also suppress a number of genes including MCAM/MUC18, C/EBP alpha and MYC. Involved in the MTA1-mediated epigenetic regulation of ESR1 expression in breast cancer.|

Transcription factor gene AP2-C (AP-2 gamma) belongs to a family of four closely related genes. The AP-2 transcription factor has been shown to play an important role in the development of tissues of ectodermal origin and has also been implicated in mammary oncogenesis (2). A physical and functional association between AP2-C transcription factor and the Wwox protein has been demonstrated. Results suggest that Wwox tumor suppressor protein inhibits AP-2gamma oncogenic activity by sequestering it in the cytoplasm (2). AP2-C had been implicated in multiple functions during proliferation and differentiation based on its expression pattern in trophoblast, neural crest, and ectoderm cells in murine embryos. AP2-C gamma seems to be required in early embryonic development because it regulates the genetic programs controlling proliferation and differentiation of extraembryonic trophectodermal cells (3).
