Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

FoxC2 (D4D4) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total FoxC2 protein.Species Reactivity:
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Leu278 of human FoxC2 protein.
Forkhead box (Fox) proteins are a family of evolutionarily conserved transcription factors defined by the presence of a winged helix DNA binding domain called a Forkhead box (1). In humans, there are over 40 known Fox protein family members, divided into 19 subfamilies, which have evolved to regulate gene transcription in diverse and highly specialized biological contexts throughout development (2). Mutations that disrupt the expression of Fox gene family members have consequently been implicated in a broad array of human disorders, including immunological dysfunction, infertility, speech/language disorders, and cancer (3,4).
The expression of FoxC2 and several other Fox transcription factors are regulated during adipogenesis, suggesting their involvement in adipocyte differentiation (5). A transgenic mouse model exhibiting over expression of FoxC2 in white adipose tissue (WAT) and brown adipose tissue (BAT) showed a reduction of the intra-abdominal WAT depot (6). The BAT-specific gene Ucp1 is upregulated in the intra-abdominal WAT depot of these transgenic mice, resulting in histological features similar to those seen in BAT. This evidence suggests that FoxC2 can play a protective role against obesity and diet-induced insulin resistance (6).
