PAX6 Antibody

Peptide Affinity Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - PAX6 Antibody AP12920A
    Western blot analysis of PAX6 (arrow) using rabbit polyclonal PAX6 Antibody (Cat. #AP12920a). 293 cell lysates (2 ug/lane) either nontransfected (Lane 1) or transiently transfected (Lane 2) with the PAX6 gene.
  • IHC-P - PAX6 Antibody AP12920A
    PAX6 Antibody (Cat. #AP12920a)immunohistochemistry analysis in formalin fixed and paraffin embedded human brain tissue followed by peroxidase conjugation of the secondary antibody and DAB staining.This data demonstrates the use of PAX6 Antibody for immunohistochemistry. Clinical relevance has not been evaluated.
  • IF - PAX6 Antibody AP12920A
    Confocal immunofluorescent analysis of PAX6 Antibody(Cat#AP12920a) with Hela cell followed by Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit lgG (green). Actin filaments have been labeled with Alexa Fluor 555 phalloidin (red).DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclear (blue).

Protein Information
Name PAX6
Synonyms AN2
Function Transcription factor with important functions in the development of the eye, nose, central nervous system and pancreas. Required for the differentiation of pancreatic islet alpha cells (By similarity). Competes with PAX4 in binding to a common element in the glucagon, insulin and somatostatin promoters. Regulates specification of the ventral neuron subtypes by establishing the correct progenitor domains (By similarity). Isoform 5a appears to function as a molecular switch that specifies target genes.
Cellular Location Nucleus.
Tissue Location Fetal eye, brain, spinal cord and olfactory epithelium. Isoform 5a is less abundant than the PAX6 shorter form

This gene encodes paired box gene 6, one of many human homologs of the Drosophila melanogaster gene prd. In addition to the hallmark feature of this gene family, a conserved paired box domain, the encoded protein also contains a homeo box domain. Both domains are known to bind DNA, and function as regulators of gene transcription. This gene is expressed in the developing nervous system, and in developing eyes. Mutations in this gene are known to cause ocular disorders such as aniridia and Peter's anomaly. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding either the same or different isoform have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq].
