SPECIES REACTIVITY:Human, Mouse
HOMOLOGY:Predicted species reactivity based on immunogen sequence: Rat: (94%), Mouse: (94%)
TESTED APPLICATIONS:ELISA, IF, IHC-P, WB
APPLICATIONS:FOXA2 Antibody can be used for detection of FOXA2 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.

Antibody validated: Western Blot in human samples; Immunohistochemistry in mouse samples and Immunofluorescence in human and mouse samples. All other applications and species not yet tested.
USER NOTE:Optimal dilutions for each application to be determined by the researcher.
POSITIVE CONTROL:1) Cat. No. 1310 - Human Bladder Tissue Lysate
PREDICTED MOLECULAR WEIGHT:Predicted: 51 kDa

Observed: 54 kDa

Background

BACKGROUND:FOXA2 Antibody: FOXA2 is one of three members of the FOXA family, a subset of the forkhead family of transcription factors which play vital roles in development. FOXA2 was initially identified through library screening as a closely related homolog of FOXA1. Both FOXA2 and FOXA1 act as transcriptional activators in adult liver and also play a role in body axis formation, neural tube patterning and definitive endoderm formation during gastrulation.
