|Other Names||Neurogenin-1, NGN-1, Class A basic helix-loop-helix protein 6, bHLHa6, Neurogenic basic-helix-loop-helix protein, Neurogenic differentiation factor 3, NeuroD3, NEUROG1, BHLHA6, NEUROD3, NGN, NGN1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP2022a was selected from the N-term region of human NeuroG1 . A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||BHLHA6, NEUROD3, NGN, NGN1|
|Function||Acts as a transcriptional regulator. Involved in the initiation of neuronal differentiation. Activates transcription by binding to the E box (5'-CANNTG-3'). Associates with chromatin to enhancer regulatory elements in genes encoding key transcriptional regulators of neurogenesis (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Expression restricted to the embryonic nervous system|

Basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) proteins are transcription factors involved in determining cell type during development. NeuroG1 is a bHLH protein with dual cell-fate specification roles. It functions during neurogenesis, and it has also been shown to inhibit the differentiation of neural stem cells into astrocytes. NeuroG1 promotes neurogenesis by functioning as a transcriptional activator, yet it inhibits astrocyte differentiation by compartmentalizing the CREB-binding protein transcription complex away from astrocyte differentiation genes and by inhibiting STAT transcription factors essential for gliogenesis.
