|Application ||WB, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_003914, 4503657|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||40 kDa|
|Application Notes||FOXH1 antibody can be used for detection of FOXH1 by Western blot at 1 - 2 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||FOXH1; FOXH1 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with any other members of the forkhead box family.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||FOXH1 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||FOXH1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transcriptional activator. Recognizes and binds to the DNA sequence 5'-TGT[GT][GT]ATT-3'. Required for induction of the goosecoid (GSC) promoter by TGF-beta or activin signaling. Forms a transcriptionally active complex containing FOXH1/SMAD2/SMAD4 on a site on the GSC promoter called TARE (TGF-beta/activin response element).|

FOXH1 Antibody: FOXH1 is a member of the Forkhead-box (FOX) family of transcription factors and is the human homolog of Xenopus forkhead activin signal transducer-1. FOXH1 plays an important role in mediating TGF-beta/activin signals through its interaction with the SMAD2-SMAD4 complex. It is expressed primarily during early development and localizes in the cytoplasm until it forms a complex with the SMAD proteins at which time it translocates to the nucleus to positively or negatively affect gene expression.
