Product name Anti-Egr-2 antibody
Short Description Rabbit polyclonal to Egr-2.
Description Egr-2 is a protein encoded by the EGR2 gene which is approximately 50,3 kDa. Egr-2 is localised to the nucleus and is involved in toll-like receptor signalling pathway, HTLV-I infection, viral carcinogenesis and developmental biology. It is a sequence-specific DNA-binding transcription factor, it binds to two specific DNA sites located in the promoter region of HOXA4. It is also an E3 SUMO-protein ligase, helping SUMO1 conjugate to its coregulators NAB1 and NAB2, whose sumoylation down-regulates EGR2 own transcriptional activity. Egr-2 is expressed in the cells of the nervous system. Mutations in the EGR2 gene may result in congenital hypomyelinatingand Charcot-Marie-tooth disease. STJ92863 was purified from goat serum by ammonium sulphate precipitation followed by antigen affinity chromatography using the immunizing peptide. This antibody binds to endogenous Egr-2.

Function Transcriptional regulator . Recognizes and binds to the DNA sequence 5'-GCG(T/G)GGGCG-3'(EGR-site) in the promoter region of target genes . Binds double-stranded target DNA, irrespective of the cytosine methylation status . Regulates the transcription of numerous target genes, and thereby plays an important role in regulating the response to growth factors, DNA damage, and ischemia. Plays a role in the regulation of cell survival, proliferation and cell death. Activates expression of p53/TP53 and TGFB1, and thereby helps prevent tumor formation. Required for normal progress through mitosis and normal proliferation of hepatocytes after partial hepatectomy. Mediates responses to ischemia and hypoxia; regulates the expression of proteins such as IL1B and CXCL2 that are involved in inflammatory processes and development of tissue damage after ischemia. Regulates biosynthesis of luteinizing hormone (LHB) in the pituitary .
Cellular Localization Nucleus Cytoplasm
Tissue Specificity Detected in neutrophils (at protein level).
Sequence and Domain Family Binds to DNA motifs with the sequence 5'-GCG(T/G)GGGCG-3' via its C2H2-type zinc fingers . The first, most N-terminal zinc finger binds to the 3'-GCG motif, the middle zinc finger interacts with the central TGG motif, and the C-terminal zinc finger binds to the 5'-GCG motif. Binds double-stranded target DNA, irrespective of the cytosine methylation status. Has reduced affinity for target DNA where the cytosines have been oxidized to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine. Does not bind target DNA where the cytosines have been oxidized to 5-formylcytosine or 5-carboxylcytosine .
