MA5-15854 targets OTX2 in FACS, IF, IHC, and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-15854 immunogen is purified recombinant fragment of human OTX2 expressed in E. Coli. .
MA5-15854 detects OTX2 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 32kDa.
OTX2 is a 289 amino acid containing protein encoding a member of the bicoid sub-family of homeodomain-containing transcription factors. It has two known alternative splice variants with distinct isoforms though presence of other isoforms cannot be excluded. The protein is an early marker of endodermal differentiation of embryonic stem cells and may play a role in the development of the brain and the sensory organs. The protein may bind to BCD target sequence (BTS): 5-'TCTAATCCC-3'. Defects in OTX2 are the cause of microphthalmia syndromic type 5 (MCOPS5).
