This TWIST antibody was raised against a recombinant protein corresponding to full-length mouse TWIST.


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.



TWIST is a regulator of transcription that serves as a master regulator of embryonic morphogenesis. Through its bHLH motif it interacts with many different transcription factors to affect multiple pathways of gene expression. TWIST plays a pivotal role in mesodermal, myoblast, and osteoblast differentiation. TWIST is involved in the epithelial–mesenchymal transition (EMT), a period during embryonic development characterized by loss of cell adhesion and increased cell mobility, essential events for mesoderm and neural tube formation. The EMT shares many features of metastatic cancer, and elevated levels of TWIST are observed in many types of cancer. Mutations in the gene encoding TWIST have been associated with Saethre-Chotzen syndrome, an inherited developmental disorder characterized by skull deformations, limb abnormalities, and facial dysmorphisim.

Compatible Secondary Antibodies

Active Motif has developed a variety of high-quality secondary antibodies for most applications, with anti-rabbit and anti-mouse conjugates to a broad line of high-quality fluorescent molecules, as well as horse radish peroxidase (HRP). Visit our Secondary Antibody Conjugates page to find the perfect secondaries for immunofluorescence experiments with TWIST antibody (mAb).


Some products may be shipped at room temperature. This will not affect their stability or performance. Upon receipt, unconjugated antibodies may be stored at -20°C for up to 2 years. Fluorophore- & enzyme-conjugated antibodies should be stored at 4°C. Fluorophore-conjugated antibodies should be protected from light. Keep reagents on ice when not in storage; to avoid repeated freeze/thaw cycles, we recommend aliquoting items that will be stored frozen into single-use fractions prior to freezing.


This product is guaranteed for 6 months from date of receipt.
