|Calculated MW||188915 Da|
|Antigen Region||1-347 aa|
|Other Names||PR domain zinc finger protein 2, GATA-3-binding protein G3B, Lysine N-methyltransferase 8, MTB-ZF, MTE-binding protein, PR domain-containing protein 2, Retinoblastoma protein-interacting zinc finger protein, Zinc finger protein RIZ, PRDM2, KMT8, RIZ|
|Target/Specificity||Purified recombinant GST fusion protein encoding aa 1-347 of human RIZ1. This antibody is specific for RIZ1, it does not recognize the isoform beta (RIZ2).|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein G column, followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||PRDM2 (RIZ1) Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||S-adenosyl-L-methionine-dependent histone methyltransferase that specifically methylates 'Lys-9' of histone H3. May function as a DNA-binding transcription factor. Binds to the macrophage-specific TPA-responsive element (MTE) of the HMOX1 (heme oxygenase 1) gene and may act as a transcriptional activator of this gene.|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in retinoblastoma cell lines and in brain tumors. Also expressed in a number of other cell lines and in brain, heart, skeletal muscle, liver and spleen Isoform 1 is expressed in testis at much higher level than isoform 3.|

This tumor suppressor gene is a member of a nuclear histone/protein methyltransferase superfamily. It encodes a zinc finger protein that can bind to retinoblastoma protein, estrogen receptor, and the TPA-responsive element (MTE) of the heme-oxygenase-1 gene. Although the functions of this protein have not been fully characterized, it may (1) play a role in transcriptional regulation during neuronal differentiation and pathogenesis of retinoblastoma, (2) act as a transcriptional activator of the heme-oxygenase-1 gene, and (3) be a specific effector of estrogen action. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
