Immunogen N-terminal fragment of human Mi protein
Clone D5
Isotype IgG1
Specificity This antibody detects MiTF. It does not cross-react with other b-HLH-ZIP factors by DNA mobility shift assay (1). Reacts with both melanocytic and nonmelanocytic isoforms of Mi.
Characteristics Synonyms: Microphthalmia-associated transcription factor, Mi-protein
Purification Protein G chromatography
Alternative Name MITF (MITF Antibody Abstract)
Background Mi is a basic helix-loop-helix-leucin zipper (b-HLH-ZIP) transtripotion factor implicated in pigmentation, mast cells and bone development. The mutation of Mi causes Waardenburg Syndrome type II in humans. In mice, a profound loss of pigmented cells in the skin eye and inner ear results, as well as osteopetrosis and defects in natural killer and mast cells.There are two known isoforms of Mi differing by 66 amino acids at the NH2 terminus. Shorter forms are expressed in melanocytes and run as two bands at 52 kDa and 56 kDa, while the longer Mi form runs as a cluster of bands at 60-70 kDa in osteoclasts and in B16 melonoma cells (but not other melanoma cell lines), as well as mast cells and heart (1).Synonyms: Mi-protein, Microphthalmia-associated transcription factor
Gene ID 4286
