Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab221544 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 38 kDa.

Detection of endogenous expression of nkx6.1 in WB will require optimization. Under our experimental conditions we only detected weak endogenous expression in mouse lysates.

IHC-P 1/200. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with Tris/EDTA buffer pH 9.0 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.

Target

  • Function

    Transcription factor which binds to specific A/T-rich DNA sequences in the promoter regions of a number of genes. Involved in transcriptional regulation in islet beta cells. Binds to the insulin promoter and is involved in regulation of the insulin gene. Together with NKX2-2 and IRX3 acts to restrict the generation of motor neurons to the appropriate region of the neural tube. Belongs to the class II proteins of neuronal progenitor factors, which are induced by SHH signals.
  • Tissue specificity

    Pancreatic beta cells.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 homeobox DNA-binding domain.
  • Domain

    The C-terminal domain contributes to sequence-specific DNA-binding.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus.
