Heat-mediated antigen retrieval is recommended prior to staining, using a 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0, for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 min. Following antigen retrieval, incubate samples with primary antibody for 30 min at room temperature. A suggested positive control is brain tissue.
The myocyte enhancer factors-2 (MEF-2) family of transcription factors associate with a variety of co-repressors or co-activators to regulate development and function of T cells, neuronal cells, and muscle cells. Four distinct family members arise from alternatively splices transcripts, termed MEF-2A, MEF-2B, MEF-2C, and MEF-2D. These members bind as homo- and heterodimers to the MEF-2 site in the promoter region of affected genes. Differential regulation in the expression of the 4 transcripts implies functional distinction for each during embryogenesis and development.
