|Other Names||Pituitary homeobox 2, ALL1-responsive protein ARP1, Homeobox protein PITX2, Paired-like homeodomain transcription factor 2, RIEG bicoid-related homeobox transcription factor, Solurshin, PITX2, ARP1, RGS, RIEG, RIEG1|
|Target/Specificity||This PITX2 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 122-151 amino acids of human PITX2.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|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||PITX2 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||ARP1, RGS, RIEG, RIEG1|
|Function||Controls cell proliferation in a tissue-specific manner and is involved in morphogenesis. During embryonic development, exerts a role in the expansion of muscle progenitors. May play a role in the proper localization of asymmetric organs such as the heart and stomach. Isoform PTX2C is involved in left-right asymmetry the developing embryo (By similarity).|

Pilx2 is a member of the RIEG/PITX homeobox family, which is in the bicoid class of homeodomain proteins. This protein acts as a transcription factor and regulates procollagen lysyl hydroxylase gene expression. It plays a role in the terminal differentiation of somatotroph and lactotroph cell phenotypes, is involved in the development of the eye, tooth and abdominal organs, and acts as a transcriptional regulator involved in basal and hormone-regulated activity of prolactin. Mutations in this protein are associated with Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome, iridogoniodysgenesis syndrome, and sporadic cases of Peters anomaly. A similar protein in other vertebrates is involved in the determination of left-right asymmetry during development.
