Western Blot Detection of Human and Mouse EBF-2 by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human and Mouse EBF-2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of 3T3‑L1 mouse embryonic fibroblast adipose-like cell line and HepG2 human hepatocellular carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human/Mouse EBF-2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7006) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for EBF-2 at approximately 65 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

EBF-2 in Mouse Embryo. EBF-2 was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse embryo (15 d.p.c.) using Sheep Anti-Mouse EBF-2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7006) at 10 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Sheep HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS019) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to developing muscle cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

Background: EBF-2

EBF-2 (Early B cell Factor 2; also Mmot1, OLF3 and COE2) is a 62 kDa (predicted) member of the COE family of transcription factors. It is expressed in immature osteoblasts and Purkinje cells, and in the embryo is associated with the migration of postmitotic neuroblasts. In immature osteoblasts, EBF-2 appears to upregulate OPG, suppressing osteoclast formation. And in the developing retina, EBF-2 is found in ganglion, glycinergic Amacrine and horizontal cells, possibly promoting their development over that of photoreceptor cells. Mouse EBF-2 is 575 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains one DNA-binding region with an embedded C5-type zinc‑finger motif (aa 62-238), a dimerization ITP/TIG domain (aa 253-336), and a Pro/Ser-rich transactivation domain (aa 453-534). Although considered an HLH type transcription factor, it does not contain the typical "b", or basic amino acid sequence associated with bHLH factors. EBF-2 both homodimerizes, and heterodimerizes with EBF-1 and -3. There is an alternative start site at Met23. Over aa 407-519, mouse EBF-2 is identical in aa sequence to rat EBF-2 and shares 99% aa identity with human EBF-2.
