    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • 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
      Sumoylated on Lys-21; which inhibits transcriptional activity.
    • Cellular localizationNucleus.

    • ab18114 at 1/1000 staining perfusion fixed adult rat brain tissue sections by IHC-Fr. Adult rat was perfused intracardially with paraformaldehyde 4% 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 (1/1000) 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 picture shows the staining obtained at the level of the spinal cord using the X40 objective.
