Detection of Human GATA‑4 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line and human liver tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 0.5 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human GATA‑4 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB2606) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for GATA‑4 at approximately 56 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

GATA-4 belongs to the GATA family of transcription factors, which bind to the consensus DNA sequence (A/T) GATA (A/G) to control diverse tissue-specific programs of gene expression and morphogenesis. It is widely expressed in mesodermal- and endodermal-derived tissues. GATA-4 interacts with other transcription factors such as NKX2.5, and myocyte enhancer factor 2 to regulate cardiac myocyte-specific gene expression. GATA-4 contains 2 zinc finger-binding domains and migrates at 56 kDa in SDS-PAGE gels. Human GATA-4 share 93%, 93% and 92% amino acid sequence identity with porcine, rat and mouse GATA-4, respectively.
