  • Function

    Acts as a transcriptional activator. Binds to and activates the promoter of the alpha-glycoprotein gene, and synergistically enhances transcription from the prolactin promoter in cooperation with Pit-1.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in LHX3 are the cause of pituitary hormone deficiency combined type 3 (CPHD3) [MIM:221750]; also known as combined pituitary hormone deficiency with rigid cervical spine or sensorineural deafness with pituitary dwarfism. CPHD is characterized by a complete deficit in all but one (adrenocorticotropin) anterior pituitary hormone and a rigid cervical spine leading to limited head rotation.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
    Contains 2 LIM zinc-binding domains.
  • Domain

    The LIM domain specifically interacts with the Pit-1 POU domain and is required for synergistic interactions with Pit-1, but not for basal transcriptional activation events.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for your enquiry. I regret to inform you that there are no details available regarding the characterization of ab14555 in Western blotting. Often it is possible to make suggestions that help resolve problems. We will happily offer technical support and in the event that a product is not functioning in the applications cited on the product data sheet (and the problem has been reported within 90 days of purchase), and if it appears that the antibody is at fault, a credit note/refund will be offered. If you would like some technical support I enclose a link to a questionnaire which will help you put your protocol information together very easily so we can look into the details of the experiment and provide some help. https://www.abcam.com/index.html?section=western&pageconfig=technical&intAbID=14555&mode=questionaire
