Gallery: FLI1 Antibody #12225
FLI1 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total FLI1 protein.
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Val64 of human FLI1 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Friend leukemia integration 1 (FLI1) transcription factor is an ETS domain-containing transcription factor that plays an important and highly conserved role in vertebrate development, particularly hematopoiesis, where it functions to activate transcription of genes that promote erythroblast proliferation (1-4). In mice, the Fli1 locus is a common retroviral insertion site for the Friend murine leukemia virus (F-MuLV), such that a majority of F-MuLV-induced erythroleukemias are associated with aberrant Fli1 expression (5). Notably in humans, aberrant FLI1 expression has also been linked to poor prognosis in acute myeloid leukemia (6). Also in humans, a t(11;22)(q24;q12) chromosomal translocation has been described that generates a chimeric protein (EWS/FLI1) comprised of the amino-terminal transactivation domain of Ewing's sarcoma breakpoint region 1 (EWS) and the carboxy-terminal ETS domain of FLI1 (7). The EWS/FLI1 fusion protein functions as a transcriptional activator that is reportedly responsible for >85% of the known cases of pediatric Ewing’s sarcoma, an aggressive bone and soft tissue tumor (8,9).
