MA5-17148 targets PDX1 in FACS, pep-ELISA, and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-17148 immunogen is purified recombinant fragment of human PDX1 expressed in E. Coli.
MA5-17148 detects PDX1 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 30.8kDa.
The protein encoded by this gene is a transcriptional activator of several genes, including insulin, somatostatin, glucokinase, islet amyloid polypeptide, and glucose transporter type 2. The encoded nuclear protein is involved in the early development of the pancreas and plays a major role in glucose-dependent regulation of insulin gene expression. Defects in this gene are a cause of pancreatic agenesis, which can lead to early-onset insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM), as well as maturity onset diabetes of the young type 4 (MODY4).
