PA5-29826 targets MITF in WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The PA5-29826 immunogen is recombinant protein fragment corresponding to a region within amino acids 42 and 191 of Human MITF.
This gene encodes a transcription factor that contains both basic helix-loop-helix and leucine zipper structural features. It regulates the differentiation and development of melanocytes retinal pigment epithelium and is also responsible for pigment cell-specific transcription of the melanogenesis enzyme genes. Heterozygous mutations in the this gene cause auditory-pigmentary syndromes, such as Waardenburg syndrome type 2 and Tietz syndrome. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been identified.
