Description: The eBioEvan monoclonal antibody reacts with mouse and human Gata-4. In a western blot of C57Bl/6 and BALB/c mouse heart lysates, a single band is present, suggesting that this antibody does not cross-react with Gata-5 or Gata-6, which are also expressed in the heart, but with different molecular weights. The eBioEvan monoclonal antibody has been successfully used in flow cytometry on HEK 293T cells transiently transfected with either mouse Gata-4 or human Gata-4.
Gata-4 is a member of the GATA family of transcription factors, which are characterized by a conserved DNA binding domain containing two zinc fingers. The mouse Gata-4 gene encodes a protein of 48kDa. Studies show that Gata-4 plays an important role in controlling cardiomyocyte differentiation, proliferation and survival. Gata-4 is expressed during fetal development, as well as in the adult mouse heart. It also appears to modulate gene expression in the gut, liver, and gonads.
Applications Reported: This eBioEvan antibody has been reported for use in immunoblotting (WB) and immunohistochemistry.
Applications Tested: This eBioEvan antibody has been tested by western blot analysis of mouse heart lysates. As a starting dilution, it is recommended to use this purified antibody at 2µg/mL for western blot analysis. The eBioEvan antibody has been tested on formalin-fixed paraffin embedded human tissue using low pH antigen retrieval and can be used at less than or equal to 5 µg/mL. It is recommended that the antibody be carefully titrated for optimal performance in the assay of interest.
Purity: Greater than 90%, as determined by SDS-PAGE.
Aggregation: Less than 10%, as determined by HPLC.
Filtration: 0.2 µm post-manufacturing filtered.
GATA4 is a member of the GATA family of zinc-finger transcription factors. Members of this family recognize the GATA motif which is present in the promoters of many genes. This protein is thought to regulate genes involved in embryogenesis and in myocardial differentiation and function. Mutations in the gene encoding GATA4 have been associated with cardiac septal defects.
