FunctionSequence-specific DNA-binding protein that interacts with inducible viral and cellular enhancer elements to regulate transcription of selected genes. AP-2 factors bind to the consensus sequence 5'-GCCNNNGGC-3' and activate genes involved in a large spectrum of important biological functions including proper eye, face, body wall, limb and neural tube development. They also suppress a number of genes including MCAM/MUC18, C/EBP alpha and MYC. AP-2-beta appears to be required for normal face and limb development and for proper terminal differentiation and function of renal tubular epithelia.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in TFAP2B are the cause of Char syndrome (CHAR) [MIM:169100]. CHAR is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), facial dysmorphism and hand anomalies.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the AP-2 family.
Post-translational modificationsSumoylated on Lys-21; which inhibits transcriptional activity.

ab18113 at 1/300 staining perfusion fixed rat brain tissue sections by IHC-Fr. Adult rat was perfused intracardially with paraformaldehyde 4% + 15% of a saturated solution of picric acid in PB 0.2M. The brain was post-fixed in the same fixative for 24 hours. Sections were cryoprotected with sucrose 20% and later frozen in OCT. Sections were incubated in free floating 12h with the primary antibody (1/300) and revealed with secondary antibody conjugated with Alexa Fluor ® 488 (1/2000). The staining obtained is restricted to the cytoplasm and consists of a small and thin punctate staining (white arrows). The pictures show the staining obtained in cortical neurons, with the X20 (top picture) and X40 (bottom picture) objective.
