TLE2 in Human Lung Mesothelioma. TLE2 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human lung mesothelioma using Sheep Anti-Human TLE2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7216) at 10 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody, tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). 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 nuclei.

TLE2 (Transducin-Like Enhancer of Split 2; also ESG2 and Grg-2) is an 83-84 kDa member of the WD repeat Groucho/TLE family of transcriptional repressors. It is ubiquitously expressed, and is known to antagonize TCF (Wnt)-mediated signaling. TLE2 binds to other family members as a heterooligomer, or to itself as a homooligomer. While it possesses no intrinsic DNA-binding activity, it does modulate the activity of multiple factors such as FoxG1, Arx and histone H3. Human TLE2 is 743 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a Gln-rich region that mediates oligomerization (aa 1-133), a CCN domain that contains an NLS (aa 195-256), and six WD repeats that mediate protein-protein interaction (aa 455-742). There are at least five potential phosphorylation sites that if used, may account for SDS-Page MWs exceeding 95 kDa. Potential isoform variants exist. One possesses a 21 aa substitution for aa 1-9, while a second shows the same substitution coupled to an additional 10 aa substitution for aa 683-743. A third isoform possesses an alternative start site at Met56 coupled to a deletion of aa 124-190. Over aa 11-193, human TLE2 shares 91% aa identity with mouse TLE2.
