HOXB7 in MCF‑7 Human Cell Line. HOXB7 was detected in immersion fixed MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line using Mouse Anti-Human HOXB7 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8040) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red, upper panel; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue, lower panel). Specific staining was localized to nuclei. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.

HOXB7 (Homeobox protein B7), also called Hox-2C, is a 24 kDa (predicted) member of the Antp homeobox family of transcription factors. It is widely expressed and is overexpressed in many cancers such as melanoma and tumors in lung and breast. It promotes tumorigenesis by promoting activities such as proliferation, invasion, epithelial-mesenchymal transition and angiogenesis. Human HOXB7 is a 217 amino acid (aa) protein with an Antp-type hexapeptide (aa 126-131) that mediates heterodimerization, and a DNA-binding homeobox domain (aa 137-196). Human HOXB7 aa 1-123 shares 92% aa sequence identity with mouse and rat HOXB7.
