Brn2/POU3F2 Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total Brn2/POU3F2 protein.Species predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology: Mouse
Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Ala208 of human Brn2/POU3F2 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
Brn2/POU3F2 is a POU domain-containing transcription factor involved in neuronal differentiation and activation of the corticotrophin-releasing hormone gene (1,2). In mice, disruption of the Brn2 gene results in loss of specific neuronal lineages in the hypothalamus (3). In addition to its role in mammalian neurogenesis, Brn2 has also been implicated in melanoma tumorigenesis and has been shown in the literature to be overexpressed in human melanoma cells compared to normal melanocytes (4,5). Recent studies also identify Brn2 as a transcription factor playing an important role in keratinocyte differentiation (6). Recent reports demonstrate that overexpression of three transcription factors (Brn2, Ascl1, and Myt1L) can directly convert human fibroblasts into functional neurons under precisely defined conditions (7,8).
