The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 4 - 8 µg/ml.
FunctionTranscriptionally activator that may play a role in regulating the later stages of keratinocytes terminal differentiation. Isoform 2 binds to DNA sequences containing the consensus nucleotide core sequence GGA[AT]. Transcriptionally activates SPRR2A and the parotid gland-specific PSP promoters.
Tissue specificityExpressed exclusively in tissues with a high content of epithelial cells. Highly expressed in salivary gland, mammary gland, kidney and prostate. Weakly expressed in placenta and lung. Isoform 1 and isoform 2 are differentially expressed in different tissues. In the kidney, only isoform 1 was expressed, while prostate expressed both isoforms, with levels of isoform 2 being higher. Expression is up-regulated during keratinocyte differentiation. Several epithelial carcinoma cell lines showed lack of expression.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ETS family. Contains 1 ETS DNA-binding domain. Contains 1 PNT (pointed) domain.
DomainThe PNT domain acts as a transcriptional activator.
