General description

TCF4, also known as TCF7L2, is expressed widely during development. Gene targeting study indicates that it is required to maintain the crypt stem cells of the small intestine. TCF4 has many different splicing isoforms and they are expressed differentially in tissues and in cancers of different stages. Studies also indicate that variant of the TCF4 gene confers an increased risk of type 2 diabetes.


This antibody recognizes TCF-4


Amino acids 31-331 of human TCF-4.


A previous lot of this antibody is reported to show positive immunostaining for TCF-4 in cells fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde/PBS (Amir, A. L., 2003).

A previous lot of this antibody was reported to immunoprecipitate TCF-4 from SW620 whole cell lysate as a complex with β-Catenin (Persad, S., 2001).

Supershift Assay:
A previous lot of this antibody was reported to supershift TCF-4:DNA complexes in electrophoretic mobility shift assays (EMSA) (Amir, A. L., 2003).
