Ptf1a Antibody (N-term)

Peptide Affinity Purified Rabbit Polyclonal Antibody (Pab)

  • WB - Ptf1a Antibody (N-term) AP2706A
    Western blot analysis of Ptf1a (arrow) using rabbit polyclonal Ptf1a Antibody (N-term) (Cat.#AP2706a).293 cell lysates (2 ug/lane) either nontransfected (Lane 1) or transiently transfected with the Ptf1a gene (Lane 2) (Origene Technologies).
  • IHC-P - Ptf1a Antibody (N-term) AP2706A
    Formalin-fixed and paraffin-embedded human brain tissue reacted with Ptf1a Antibody (N-term) (Cat.#AP2706a), which was peroxidase-conjugated to the secondary antibody, followed by DAB staining. This data demonstrates the use of this antibody for immunohistochemistry; clinical relevance has not been evaluated.

Protein Information
Name PTF1A
Synonyms BHLHA29, PTF1P48
Function Transcription factor implicated in the cell fate determination in various organs. Binds to the E-box consensus sequence 5'-CANNTG-3'. Plays a role in early and late pancreas development and differentiation. Important for determining whether cells allocated to the pancreatic buds continue towards pancreatic organogenesis or revert back to duodenal fates. May be involved in the maintenance of exocrine pancreas-specific gene expression including ELA1 and amylase. Required for the formation of pancreatic acinar and ductal cells. Plays an important role in cerebellar development. Directly regulated by FOXN4 and RORC during retinal development, FOXN4-PTF1A pathway plays a central role in directing the differentiation of retinal progenitors towards horizontal and amacrine fates.
Cellular Location Nucleus {ECO:0000255|PROSITE- ProRule:PRU00981}. Cytoplasm. Note=In chronic pancreatitis associated with pancreas cancer preferentially accumulates in the cytoplasm of acinar/ductular complexes. In the cytoplasm loses its ability to form the PTF1 complex (By similarity).
Tissue Location Pancreas-specific (at protein level). Loss of expression is seen in ductal type pancreas cancers

Ptf1a is a component of the pancreas transcription factor 1 complex (PTF1) and is known to have a role in mammalian pancreatic development. The protein plays a role in determining whether cells allocated to the pancreatic buds continue towards pancreatic organogenesis or revert back to duodenal fates. This protein is thought to be involved in the maintenance of exocrine pancreas-specific gene expression including elastase 1 and amylase. Mutations in the Ptf1a gene cause cerebellar agenesis and loss of expression is seen in ductal type pancreas cancers.
