Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting, IP=Immunoprecipitation
Specificity / Sensitivity
T-bet/TBX21 (V365) Antibody detects endogenous levels of total T-bet protein.
Source / Purification
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Val365 of human T-bet/TBX21 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
The T-box gene family consists of transcription factors characterized by a related DNA-binding domain (T-box) of approximately 200 amino acids (1,2). The T-box genes exhibit diverse temporal and spatial patterns in the developing embryo. Studies have demonstrated members of this family play crucial roles during embryogenesis in a wide range of organisms by regulating cell fate decisions to establish the early body plan and to regulate later processes underlying organogenesis (3-5). Mutations in T-box genes are associated with many developmental defects (6). Recent studies also indicate potential roles in cancer by members of T-box family (7-9).
T-bet, also as known as TBX21, plays a critical role in development and maintenance of type 1 helper T (Th1) and T-bet deficient mice display impaired Th1 differentiation (10,11).
