Gene Information

human ... GRHL2(79977)

General description

GRHL2 is located at 8q22.3 on the human chromosome.
GRHL2 (grainyhead-like 2,Drosophila) is a transcription factor belonging to the grainyhead family. The family comprises of GRHL1, GRHL2 and GRHL3.


Grainyhead-like protein 2 homolog recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)


Anti-GRHL2 antibody has been used in:
  • immunohistochemistry
  • western blotting
  • immunofluorescence

All Prestige Antibodies Powered by Atlas Antibodies are developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project (www.proteinatlas.org)and as a result, are supported by the most extensive characterization in the industry.

The Human Protein Atlas project can be subdivided into three efforts: Human Tissue Atlas, Cancer Atlas, and Human Cell Atlas. The antibodies that have been generated in support of the Tissue and Cancer Atlas projects have been tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues and through the recent efforts of the Human Cell Atlas project, many have been characterized by immunofluorescence to map the human proteome not only at the tissue level but now at the subcellular level. These images and the collection of this vast data set can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. To view these protocols and other useful information about Prestige Antibodies and the HPA, visit sigma.com/prestige.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Mutation of the GRHL2 gene is associated with an autosomal dominant hearing loss. It exhibits tumor suppression activity.
GRHL2 (grainyhead-like 2, Drosophila) is essentially involved in the several cellular processes, such as lung epithelial cell identity, migration, differentiation, remodeling, repair and cell-cell interactions. It plays an important role in the regulation of morphogenesis and differentiation of epithelial cells. It acts as a prognostic marker in various cancers including hepatocellular carcinoma, breast cancer, gastric cancer and colorectal carcinoma.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST86696.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide
