Target

  • Function
    Binds DNA and functions as a transcriptional regulator. Functions in the differentiation of brown adipose tissue (BAT) which is specialized in dissipating chemical energy in the form of heat in response to cold or excess feeding while white adipose tissue (WAT) is specialized in the storage of excess energy and the control of systemic metabolism. Together with CEBPB, regulates the differentiation of myoblastic precursors into brown adipose cells. Functions also as a repressor of TGF-beta signaling. Isoform 4 may regulate granulocytes differentiation.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in uterus and kidney.
  • Involvement in disease
    Note=A chromosomal aberration involving PRDM16 is found in myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) and acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Reciprocal translocation t(1;3)(p36;q21). Isoform 4 is specifically expressed in adult T-cell leukemia.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 10 C2H2-type zinc fingers.
    Contains 1 SET domain.

Thank you for contacting us.
There are four isoforms of the human protein, but they all have the same C-terminus sequence from which the immunogen for this antibody is derived. I compared the immunogen sequence with the mouse sequence and they hav...

Thank you for your reply.

I can confirm that ab106410 has been raised against a peptide corresponding to human PRDM16. The antibody will cross-react with rat PRDM16, as shown in western blot and IHC on the datasheet. I do not have details of...
