Western blot analysis of MA1-117 detects a prominent ~48 kDa protein in human adenocarcinoma SKOV-3 and SV40 transformed African green monkey (Cercopithecus aethiops) kidney cells. In SKOV-3 cells, additional unknown low molecular bands are also detected. Specificity of the antibody was confirmed in HeLa (negative control) and 293T cells overexpressing full length PAX8.
PAX8 is a member of the paired box (PAX) family of transcription factors. Members of this gene family typically contain a paired box domain, an octapeptide, and a paired-type homeodomain. Pax8 is expressed in the developing and adult thyroid and kidney. In the thyroid, PAX8 regulates thyroglobulin, thyroidperoxidase,and NIS (sodium/iodide symporter) expression. Mutations in PAX8 have been associated with thyroid dysgenesis, thyroid follicular carcinomas and atypical follicular thyroid adenomas.
