FoxC2 in Mouse Embryo. FoxC2 was detected in immersion fixed frozen sections of mouse embryo (E15.5) using Sheep Anti-Mouse FoxC2 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF6989) at 10 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (red; Catalog # NL010) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to periocular mesenchyme. View our protocol for Fluorescent IHC Staining of Frozen Tissue Sections.

FOXC2 (Forkhead box protein C2; also BF-3, FKH-14 and MFH-1) is a 64-66 kDa member of the winged helix transcription factor gene family. It is widely expressed, including in endothelium where it induces the appearance of CXCR4 and integrin beta 3, two molecules essential to cell migration. High-calorie diets also induce FOXC2 in adipocytes, inducing a brown-fat like phenotype. Mouse FOXC2 is 494 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains a forkhead DNA binding domain (aa 71-148), a short poly-Arg segment (aa 162-166), one His-rich region (aa 386-395) and an Ala/Pro-rich domain (aa 396-415). There are seven potential Ser/Thr phosphorylation sites. Over aa 412-494, mouse FOXC2 shares 99% and 87% aa identity with rat and human FOXC2, respectively.
