MA5-14146 targets MiTF in IHC (paraffin), FACS, GS and WB applications and shows reactivity with Canine, Equine, Human, mouse, and Rat samples.
The MA5-14146 immunogen is n-terminal fragment of human Mi protein.
Mi is a basic helix-loop-helix-leucine zipper (b-HLH-ZIP) transcription 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 52kDa and 56kDa, while the longer Mi form runs as a cluster of bands at 60-70kDa in osteoclasts and in B16 melonoma cells (but not other melanoma cell lines), as well as mast cells and heart.
