Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab246762 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
FunctionTranscription factor that binds to the immunoglobulin enchancer Mu-E5/KE5-motif. Binds to the E-box present in the somatostatin receptor 2 initiator element (SSTR2-INR) to activate transcription (By similarity). Preferentially binds to either 5'-ACANNTGT-3' or 5'-CCANNTGG-3'.
Tissue specificityExpressed in adult heart, brain, placenta, skeletal muscle and to a lesser extent in the lung. In developing embryonic tissues, expression mostly occurs in the brain.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in TCF4 are a cause of Pitt-Hopkins syndrome (PTHS) [MIM:610954]. PTHS is a rare syndromic encephalopathy characterized by severe psychomotor delay, epilepsy, daily bouts of diurnal hyperventilation starting in infancy, mild postnatal growth retardation, postnatal microcephaly, and distinctive facial features. Since most hitherto reported cases have been sporadic, with males and females equally affected, PTHS is regarded as an autosomal dominant condition.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain.
Domainthe 9aaTAD motif is a transactivation domain present in a large number of yeast and animal transcription factors.

Overlay histogram showing SH-SY5Y cells stained with ab246762 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4 % formaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1 % PBS-Triton X-100 for 15 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS containing 10 % normal goat serum to block non-specific protein-protein interaction followed by the antibody (ab246762) (1x 106 in 100µl at 1 µg/ml (1/500)) for 30 min at 22°C.
Isotype control antibody (black line) was Rabbit IgG monoclonal A488 used at the same concentration and conditions as the primary antibody. Unlabelld sample (blue line) was also used as a control.
Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 50 mW Blue laser (488nm) and 530/30 bandpass filter.
