Target

  • Function
    Participates in the Wnt signaling pathway. Activates transcription of target genes in the presence of CTNNB1 and EP300. May play a role in hair cell differentiation and follicle morphogenesis. TLE1, TLE2, TLE3 and TLE4 repress transactivation mediated by LEF1 and CTNNB1. Regulates T-cell receptor alpha enhancer function. Binds DNA in a sequence-specific manner. PIAG antagonizes both Wnt-dependent and Wnt-independent activation by LEF1 (By similarity). Isoform 3 lacks the CTNNB1 interaction domain and may be an antagonist for Wnt signaling. Isoform 5 transcriptionally activates the fibronectin promoter, binds to and represses transcription from the E-cadherin promoter in a CTNNB1-independent manner, and is involved in reducing cellular aggregation and increasing cell migration of pancreatic cancer cells. Isoform 1 transcriptionally activates MYC and CCND1 expression and enhances proliferation of pancreatic tumor cells.
  • Tissue specificity
    Detected in thymus. Not detected in normal colon, but highly expressed in colon cancer biopsies and colon cancer cell lines. Expressed in several pancreatic tumors and weakly expressed in normal pancreatic tissue. Isoforms 1 and 5 are detected in several pancreatic cell lines.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the TCF/LEF family.
    Contains 1 HMG box DNA-binding domain.
  • Domain
    Proline-rich and acidic regions are implicated in the activation functions of RNA polymerase II transcription factors.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Found in nuclear bodies upon PIASG binding.

  • Immunofluorescence staining of Jurkat (Human T cell leukemia cell line from peripheral blood) cells with purified ab137872 at a working dilution of 1 in 500, counter-stained with DAPI. Tubulin was stained with mouse anti-tubulin at a dilution of 1/1000 (ab7291) and Alexa Fluor® 594 goat anti-mouse at a dilution of 1/500 (ab150120) . The secondary antibody was ab150077 Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti rabbit, used at a dilution of 1 in 500. The cells were fixed in 4% PFA and permeabilized using 0.1% Triton X 100.

    The negative controls are shown in the bottom middle and right hand panels - for the first negative control, purified ab137872 was used at a dilution of 1/200 followed by an Alexa Fluor® 555 goat anti-mouse antibody at a dilution of 1/500 and for the second negative control mouse primary antibody (ab7291) and anti-rabbit secondary antibody (ab15007) were used.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab137872).
