• Product nameAnti-MEIS1 antibody [EPR5781]
    See all MEIS1 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Rabbit monoclonal [EPR5781] to MEIS1
  • SpecificityThe immunogen of ab124686 is, according to BLAST results, conserved (57%) with human MEIS2. According to this, the antibody might cross-react with MEIS2 but this has, to our knowledge, not been experimentally tested so far.
  • Tested applicationsSuitable for: WB, IP, Flow Cytmore details
    Unsuitable for: ICC or IHC-P
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Mouse, Rat, Human
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide, corresponding to a sequence within Human MEIS1.

  • Positive control
    • U-87 MG, K562, and HeLa cell lysates; permeabilized K562 cells.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/10000 - 1/50000. Detects a band of approximately 47 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 43 kDa).
IP 1/10 - 1/100.
Flow Cyt 1/10 - 1/100. ab172730-Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for ICC or IHC-P.
  • Target

    • FunctionActs as a transcriptional regulator of PAX6. Acts as a transcriptional activator of PF4 in complex with PBX1 or PBX2. Required for hematopoiesis, megakaryocyte lineage development and vascular patterning. May function as a cofactor for HOXA7 and HOXA9 in the induction of myeloid leukemias.
    • Tissue specificityExpressed at low level in normal immunohepatopoietic tissues, including the fetal liver. Expressed in a subset of myeloid leukemia cell lines, with the highest expression seen in those with a megakaryocytic-erythroid phenotype. Also expressed at high levels in the cerebellum.
    • Involvement in diseaseDefects in MEIS1 could be a cause of susceptibility to restless legs syndrome type 7 (RLS7) [MIM:612853]. Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a neurologic sleep/wake disorder characterized by uncomfortable and unpleasant sensations in the legs that appear at rest, usually at night, inducing an irresistible desire to move the legs. The disorder results in nocturnal insomnia and chronic sleep deprivation.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the TALE/MEIS homeobox family.
      Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
