|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||CAH71530, 55665817|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||140251 Da|
|Application Notes||PRDM16 antibody can be used for detection of PRDM16 by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2.5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||PRDM16 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||PRDM16 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Binds DNA and functions as a transcriptional regulator. Functions in the differentiation of brown adipose tissue (BAT) which is specialized in dissipating chemical energy in the form of heat in response to cold or excess feeding while white adipose tissue (WAT) is specialized in the storage of excess energy and the control of systemic metabolism. Together with CEBPB, regulates the differentiation of myoblastic precursors into brown adipose cells. Functions also as a repressor of TGF-beta signaling. Isoform 4 may regulate granulocytes differentiation.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in uterus and kidney. Expressed in both cardiomyocytes and interstitial cells|

PRDM16 Antibody: PRDM16 is a zinc finger transcription factor and contains an N-terminal PR domain. The reciprocal translocation t(1;3)(p36;q21) occurs in a subset of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). This gene is located near the 1p36.3 breakpoint and has been shown to be specifically expressed in the t(1:3)(p36, q21)-positive MDS/AML. The translocation results in the overexpression of a truncated version of this protein that lacks the PR domain, which may play an important role in the pathogenesis of MDS and AML. Recent studies have shown that PRDM16 normally acts as a Smad3 binding protein that may be important for the development of orofacial structures through modulation of the TGF-beta signaling pathway. Other experiments have indicated that PRDM16 controls a bidirectional cell fate switch between skeletal myoblasts and brown fat cells.
