FOXA2 Antibody (Center)

Peptide Affinity Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - FOXA2 Antibody (Center) AP11120C
    FOXA2 Antibody (Center) (Cat. #AP11120c) western blot analysis in MDA-MB231 cell line lysates (35ug/lane).This demonstrates the FOXA2 antibody detected the FOXA2 protein (arrow).
  • IHC-P - FOXA2 Antibody (Center) AP11120C
    FOXA2 Antibody (Center) (Cat. #AP11120c)immunohistochemistry analysis in formalin fixed and paraffin embedded human stomach tissue followed by peroxidase conjugation of the secondary antibody and DAB staining.This data demonstrates the use of FOXA2 Antibody (Center) for immunohistochemistry. Clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • IF - FOXA2 Antibody (Center) AP11120C
    Fluorescent confocal image of A549 cell stained with FOXA2 Antibody (Center)(Cat#AP11120c).A549 cells were fixed with 4% PFA (20 min), permeabilized with Triton X-100 (0.1%, 10 min), then incubated with FOXA2 primary antibody (1:25, 1 h at 37℃). For secondary antibody, Alexa Fluor® 488 conjugated donkey anti-rabbit antibody (green) was used (1:400, 50 min at 37℃).Cytoplasmic actin was counterstained with Alexa Fluor® 555 (red) conjugated Phalloidin (7units/ml, 1 h at 37℃). Nuclei were counterstained with DAPI (blue) (10 µg/ml, 10 min). FOXA2 immunoreactivity is localized to Nucleus significantly.

Protein Information
Name FOXA2
Synonyms HNF3B, TCF3B
Function Transcription factor that is involved in embryonic development, establishment of tissue-specific gene expression and regulation of gene expression in differentiated tissues. Is thought to act as a 'pioneer' factor opening the compacted chromatin for other proteins through interactions with nucleosomal core histones and thereby replacing linker histones at target enhancer and/or promoter sites. Binds DNA with the consensus sequence 5'-[AC]A[AT]T[AG]TT[GT][AG][CT]T[CT]-3' (By similarity). In embryonic development is required for notochord formation. Involved in the development of multiple endoderm-derived organ systems such as the liver, pancreas and lungs; FOXA1 and FOXA2 seem to have at least in part redundant roles. Originally described as a transcription activator for a number of liver genes such as AFP, albumin, tyrosine aminotransferase, PEPCK, etc. Interacts with the cis-acting regulatory regions of these genes. Involved in glucose homeostasis; regulates the expression of genes important for glucose sensing in pancreatic beta-cells and glucose homeostasis. Involved in regulation of fat metabolism. Binds to fibrinogen beta promoter and is involved in IL6-induced fibrinogen beta transcriptional activation.
Cellular Location Nucleus {ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00089, ECO:0000269|PubMed:14500912}. Cytoplasm. Note=Shuttles between the nucleus and cytoplasm in a CRM1-dependent manner; in response to insulin signaling via AKT1 is exported from the nucleus

This gene encodes a member of the forkhead class of DNA-binding proteins. These hepatocyte nuclear factors are transcriptional activators for liver-specific genes such as albumin and transthyretin, and they also interact with chromatin. Similar family members in mice have roles in the regulation of metabolism and in the differentiation of the pancreas and liver. This gene has been linked to sporadic cases of maturity-onset diabetes of the young. Transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified for this gene.
