The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions. - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer. - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent. - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised. - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

t box brain 2
T-box brain protein 2
FunctionFunctions as a transcriptional activator playing a crucial role during development. Functions in trophoblast differentiation and later in gastrulation, regulating both mesoderm delamination and endoderm specification. Plays a role in brain development being required for the specification and the proliferation of the intermediate progenitor cells and their progeny in the cerebral cortex. Also involved in the differentiation of CD8+ T-cells during immune response regulating the expression of lytic effector genes.
Tissue specificityExpressed in CD8+ T-cells.
Involvement in diseaseNote=A translocation t(3;10)(p24;q23) located 215 kb 3' to the EOMES gene but leading to loss of its expression was identified in a large consanguineous family. Homozygous silencing produces microcephaly associated with corpus callosum agenesis, bilateral polymicrogyria, ventricular dilatation and a small cerebellum.
Developmental stageDetected at 7 weeks of development in the forebrain floorplate of the CNS. Expressed within the mantle layer and migrating neuroblasts of the telencephalon at 12.5 weeks of development.
