This antibody was raised against an N-terminal fragment of human MITF (Micropthalmia Transcription Factor).
Purified IgG in 140 mM Hepes, pH 7.5, 70 mM NaCl, 35 mM NaOAc, 0.035% sodium azide, 30% glycerol.
AbFlex® antibodies are recombinant antibodies (rAbs) that have been generated using defined DNA sequences to produce highly specific, reproducible antibodies. Each AbFlex antibody contains a 6xHis Tag, a Biotinylation Tag for enzymatic biotin conjugation using the biotin ligase, BirA, and a sortase recognition motif (LPXTG) to attach a variety of labels directly to the antibody including fluorophores, enzymatic substrates (HRP, AP), peptides, drugs as well as solid supports. AbFlex® MITF antibody was expressed as full-length IgG with mouse immunoglobulin heavy and light chains (IgG2a isotype) in mammalian 293 cells.
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.
