RFX6 in Human Pancreas. RFX6 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human pancreas using Sheep Anti-Human RFX6 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7780) at 3 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 cytoplasm of islet cells. View our protocol for Chromogenic IHC Staining of Paraffin-embedded Tissue Sections.

RFX6 (regulatory factor X, member 6) is a 928 amino acid, ~102 kDa (calculated) member of the RFX family of transcription factors that are critical for development. RFX6 is expressed in the gut endoderm, later becoming restricted to developing and adult pancreatic islets. It is downstream of Neurogenin-3 and essential for differentiation of most islet cell types. Mutation in humans can produce autosomal recessive neonatal diabetes. Human RFX6 shares 96% and 95% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat RFX6, respectively.
