|Calculated MW||37849 Da|
|Antigen Region||6-1 aa|
|Other Names||Homeobox protein Nkx-61, Homeobox protein NK-6 homolog A, NKX6-1, NKX6A|
|Target/Specificity||This NKX6-1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 285-314 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human NKX6-1.|
|Precautions||NKX6-1 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transcription factor which binds to specific A/T-rich DNA sequences in the promoter regions of a number of genes. Involved in transcriptional regulation in islet beta cells. Binds to the insulin promoter and is involved in regulation of the insulin gene. Together with NKX2-2 and IRX3 acts to restrict the generation of motor neurons to the appropriate region of the neural tube. Belongs to the class II proteins of neuronal progenitor factors, which are induced by SHH signals (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Pancreatic beta cells.|
