Target

  • Function
    Transcription factor that is involved in embryonic development, establishment of tissue-specific gene expression and regulation of gene expression in differentiated tissues. Is thought to act as a 'pioneer' factor opening the compacted chromatin for other proteins through interactions with nucleosomal core histones and thereby replacing linker histones at target enhancer and/or promoter sites. Binds DNA with the consensus sequence 5'-[AC]A[AT]T[AG]TT[GT][AG][CT]T[CT]-3' (By similarity). In embryonic development is required for notochord formation. Involved in the development of multiple endoderm-derived organ systems such as the liver, pancreas and lungs; FOXA1 and FOXA2 seem to have at least in part redundant roles. Originally discribed as a transcription activator for a number of liver genes such as AFP, albumin, tyrosine aminotransferase, PEPCK, etc. Interacts with the cis-acting regulatory regions of these genes. Involved in glucose homeostasis; regulates the expression of genes important for glucose sensing in pancreatic beta-cells and glucose homeostasis. Involved in regulation of fat metabolism. Binds to fibrinogen beta promoter and is involved in IL6-induced fibrinogen beta transcriptional activation.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 fork-head DNA-binding domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylation on Thr-156 abolishes binding to target promoters and subsequent transcription activation upon insulin stimulation.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Shuttles between the nucleus and cytoplasm in a CRM1-dependent manner and in response to insulin signaling via AKT1 is exported from the nucleus.

Images

  • ab193879 staining FOXA2 in HepG2 cells. The cells were fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min), permeabilised in 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked in 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated with ab193879 at a working dilution of 1 in 50 (shown in red) and ab195887, Mouse monoclonal [DM1A] to alpha Tubulin (Alexa Fluor® 488, shown in green) at 2µg/ml overnight at +4°C. Nuclear DNA was labelled in blue with DAPI.

    Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems, TCS SP8).

Customer reviews and Q&As

Application
Flow Cytometry
Sample
Mouse Cell (Mouse brain tissue)
Permeabilization
Yes - 0.1% triton-X100 in staining buffer
Gating Strategy
Single nuclei were selected based on FSC-A x FSC-H.
Specification
Mouse brain tissue
Preparation
Cell harvesting/tissue preparation method: Brain tissue was dounce homogenized and nuclei were extracted using a sucrose gradient. The nuclei were resuspended in 1x PBS supplemented with 0.1% triton-X100 and stained with the a-FOXA2-AF647 antibody (ab193879) at a dilution of 1:50 (blue), 1:250 (orange) or 1:500 (green). Unstained nuclei were used as control (red).
Sample buffer: 1x PBS w/o calcium and magnesium supplemented with 0.1% triton-X100 for permeabilization.
