)-- Stem cell research is one of the most fascinating areas of modern biology. Stem cells are non-specialized cells found in all multicellular organisms that have the incredible potential to develop into many different cell types in the body during early life, growth, tissue repair, and normal turnover of regenerative organs. Differentiation of the cells depends on how genes are turned on and off. Transcription factors are essential for the regulation of gene expression. FOX (Forkhead box) proteins are a family of transcription factors that play important roles in regulating the expression of genes involved in cell growth, proliferation, differentiation, and metabolism. FOXA-1,2,3 transcription factors are implicated in embryonic development, establishment of tissue-specific gene expression, and in post-natal life control of metabolism in liver, pancreas, lung, prostate, adipose tissue, as well as in neoplasms. They were discovered as the regulators of hepatic genes such as AFP, albumin, tyrosine aminotransferase, PEPCK. FOXP1,2,3,4 proteins are is necessary for the proper development of the brain and lung in mammals FOXP4 may play a role in the development of tumors of the kidney and larynx.
Selected anti- FOXA-1,2,3 (catalog # 601-570, 601-580, 602-70) and Anti- FOXP-1,2,3 (catalog #602-460, 602-470, 602-480, 602-490) polyclonal antibodies have been validated for use in Western blot.
