|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_003191, 27777636|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||67600 Da|
|Application Notes||TCF3 antibody can be used for detection of TCF3 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||TCF3 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||TCF3 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||BHLHB21, E2A, ITF1|
|Function||Transcriptional regulator. Involved in the initiation of neuronal differentiation. Heterodimers between TCF3 and tissue- specific basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) proteins play major roles in determining tissue-specific cell fate during embryogenesis, like muscle or early B-cell differentiation. Dimers bind DNA on E- box motifs: 5'-CANNTG-3'. Binds to the kappa-E2 site in the kappa immunoglobulin gene enhancer. Binds to IEB1 and IEB2, which are short DNA sequences in the insulin gene transcription control region.|

TCF3 Antibody: The TCF3 gene, also called E2A, encodes two basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors, E12 and E47, through alternative splicing. These transcription factors are involved in mediating canonical Wnt signaling, which is very important in a diverse array of cellular functions such as stem cell proliferation, self-renewal, activation, fate determination, differentiation and aging and senescence. They bind beta-catenin and can act as transcriptional activators or repressors for Wnt target genes, and have been shown to regulate specific target genes during CNS development downstream of Wnt signaling. TCF3/Lef complexes are also known to play key roles in controlling cell fate lineages in multipotent skin stem cells.
