LEF1 (C18A7) Rabbit mAb #2286
|W IP F||H M||Endogenous||25-58 kDa||Rabbit IgG|
Reactivity Key: H=Human M=Mouse
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
LEF1 (C18A7) Rabbit mAb detects endogenous level of total LEF1 proteins, including the dominant negative forms due to the usage of alternative promoter.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Val282 of human LEF1.
Western blot analysis of total cell lysates from mouse thymocytes, DLD1 and HCT15 cells, using LEF1 (C18A7) Rabbit mAb.
LEF1 and TCF are members of the high mobility group (HMG) DNA binding protein family of transcription factors that consists of the following: Lymphoid Enhancer Factor 1 (LEF1), T Cell Factor 1 (TCF1), TCF3, and TCF4 (1). LEF1 and TCF1 were originally identified as important factors regulating early lymphoid development (2) and act downstream in Wnt signaling. LEF1 and TCF bind to Wnt response elements to provide docking sites for β-catenin, which translocates to the nucleus to promote the transcription of target genes upon activation of Wnt signaling (3). LEF1 and TCF are dynamically expressed during development and aberrant activation of the Wnt signaling pathway is involved in many types of cancers including colon cancer (4,5).
LEF1 has several isoforms due to alternative splicing. LEF1 also has an alternative promoter that is preferentially active in lymphocytes. The isoforms generated by this alternative promoter have no amino-terminal β-catenin binding domain, therefore, they may function in a dominant negative manner (6-8).
