1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 32 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 32 kDa).
FunctionInhibitor of E2F-dependent transcription. Binds DNA cooperatively with DP proteins through the E2 recognition site, 5'-TTTC[CG]CGC-3'. Has a preference for the 5'-TTTCCCGC-3' E2F recognition site. E2F-6 lacks the transcriptional activation and pocket protein binding domains. Appears to regulate a subset of E2F-dependent genes whose products are required for entry into the cell cycle but not for normal cell cycle progression. May silence expression via the recruitment of a chromatin remodeling complex containing histone H3-K9 methyltransferase activity. Overexpression delays the exit of cells from the S-phase.
Tissue specificityExpressed in all tissues examined. Highest levels in placenta, skeletal muscle, heart, ovary, kidney, small intestine and spleen.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the E2F/DP family.

ChIP - Anti-E2F6 antibody - ChIP Grade (ab53061)This image is courtesy of an anonymous Abreview
ChIP analysis using ab53061 binding E2F6 in Mouse ES cell nuclear lysate. Samples were fixed with formaldehyde for 10 mins and incubated with primary antibody for 16 hours at 4°C at an antibody concentration of 1/500. Protein binding was detected using real-time PCR at both positive and negative control regions.
