This antibody is also available as an AbFlex® engineered recombinant antibody. For details on the corresponding AbFlex Recombinant Antibody, see Catalog No. 91201.
The following applications have been published using this antibody. Unless noted above, Active Motif may not have validated the antibody for use in these applications:
Please see the original reference for clone C5, which has been characterized for IP, WB, ICC/IF, and EMSA.
This MITF antibody was raised against an N-terminal fragment of human MITF.
Purified IgG in 70 mM Tris (pH 8), 105 mM NaCl, 31 mM glycine, 0.07 mM EDTA, 30% glycerol and 0.035% sodium azide. Sodium azide is highly toxic.
MITF protein (Microphthalmia-associated Transcription Factor) is a basic helix-loop-helix type transcription factor involved in the differentiation and development of retinal pigment epithelium and melanocytes. It is also responsible for pigment cell-specific transcription of the melanogenesis enzyme genes tyrosinase and tyrosinase related protein 1. For activity MITF needs to heterodimerize with other bHLH proteins such as TFE3, TFEB or TFE. Defects in MITF are the cause of Waardenburg syndrome type 2A and Tietz syndrome.
Active Motif's Human Negative Control Primer Set 2 (Cat. No. 71002) has been validated for performing qPCR and endpoint PCR when this antibody has been used for ChIP on human samples. For ChIP experiments with this antibody on mouse samples, the Mouse Positive Control Primer Set Pax-2 (Cat. No. 71020) and Mouse Negative Control Primer Set 3 (Cat. No. 71013) have been validated for both qPCR and endpoint PCR.
