|Other Names||Runt-related transcription factor 2, Acute myeloid leukemia 3 protein, Core-binding factor subunit alpha-1, CBF-alpha-1, Oncogene AML-3, Osteoblast-specific transcription factor 2, OSF-2, Polyomavirus enhancer-binding protein 2 alpha A subunit, PEA2-alpha A, PEBP2-alpha A, SL3-3 enhancer factor 1 alpha A subunit, SL3/AKV core-binding factor alpha A subunit, RUNX2, AML3, CBFA1, OSF2, PEBP2A|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7735a was selected from the N-term region of human Runx2. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI 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||AML3, CBFA1, OSF2, PEBP2A|
|Function||Transcription factor involved in osteoblastic differentiation and skeletal morphogenesis. Essential for the maturation of osteoblasts and both intramembranous and endochondral ossification. CBF binds to the core site, 5'- PYGPYGGT-3', of a number of enhancers and promoters, including murine leukemia virus, polyomavirus enhancer, T-cell receptor enhancers, osteocalcin, osteopontin, bone sialoprotein, alpha 1(I) collagen, LCK, IL-3 and GM-CSF promoters. In osteoblasts, supports transcription activation: synergizes with SPEN/MINT to enhance FGFR2-mediated activation of the osteocalcin FGF-responsive element (OCFRE) (By similarity). Inhibits KAT6B-dependent transcriptional activation.|
|Tissue Location||Specifically expressed in osteoblasts.|

Runx2 is a member of the RUNX family of transcription factors. It is a nuclear protein with an Runt DNA-binding domain. This protein is essential for osteoblastic differentiation and skeletal morphogenesis and acts as a scaffold for nucleic acids and regulatory factors involved in skeletal gene expression. It can bind DNA both as a monomer or, with more affinity, as a subunit of a heterodimeric complex. Mutations in the Runx2 gene have been associated with the bone development disorder cleidocranial dysplasia (CCD).
