|Description||GATA binding protein 4, also known as GATA4, it is a 46 kDa member of the GATA family of zinc-finger transcription factors. Members of this family is involved in the development of cardiac hypertrophy and remodeling, and plays a critical role in regulating basal and agonist or stress induced gene expression in cardiac and smooth muscle cell types. These factors recognize the GATA motif which is present in the promoters of many genes. GATA4 contains a conserved MAPK phosphorylation site at serine 105 within the transcriptional activation domain. Serine 105 of GATA4 is phosphorylated in response to agonist stimulation through MEK 1 ERK1 / 2, and weakly through JNK or p38 MAPKs. GATA4 is thought to regulate genes involved in embryogenesis and in myocardial differentiation and function. Mutations in this gene have been associated with cardiac septal defects.|
|Immunogen||Purified recombinant fragment of human GATA4 expressed in E. Coli.|

|Other Names||Transcription factor GATA-4, GATA-binding factor 4, GATA4|
|Dilution||WB~~1/500 - 1/2000|
|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||GATA4 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transcriptional activator that binds to the consensus sequence 5'-AGATAG-3' and plays a key role in cardiac development. Involved in bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-mediated induction of cardiac-specific gene expression. Binds to BMP response element (BMPRE) DNA sequences within cardiac activating regions. Acts as a transcriptional activator of ANF in cooperation with NKX2-5. Promotes cardiac myocyte enlargement. Required during testicular development.|
