General description

Gli3 can function as both a transcriptional activator and repressor of the sonic hedgehog (Shh) pathway. The full-length Gli3 form (GLI3FL) becomes an activator (GLI3A) after phosphorylation and nuclear translocation. The C-terminally truncated form (GLI3R), acts as a repressor. Proper balance between the Gli3 activator and the repressor specifies limb digit number and identity during development. In concert with TRPS1, Gli3 plays a role in activating chondrocyte proliferation. Gli3 is expressed in several normal adult tissues, including lung, colon, spleen, placenta, testis, and myometrium. Gli3 defects are associated with Greig cephalo-poly-syndactyly syndrome (GCPS), Pallister-Hall syndrome (PHS), polydactyly postaxial type A1 (PAPA1), polydactyly postaxial type B polydactyly (PAPB), and polydactyly preaxial type 4 (POP4).


This antibody recognizes the truncated, repressor form and the full length protein of human Gli3.


Recombinant protein corresponding to the putative repressive motif of human GLI3.


Immunocytochemistry Analysis: A representative lot detected Gli3 in PK-15, COS-1, and TM4 cells cotransfected with recombinant Gli3 (Hunt, R., et al. (2007). Hybridoma. 27(4):231-240.).

Immunohistochemistry Analysis: A representative lot detected Gli3 in mouse embryo cross-sections (Laht, S., et al. (2008). Hybridoma. 27(3):167-174.).

This Gli3 antibody is validated for use in WB, ICC & IHC for the detection of the Gli3 protein.

Target description

~75 kDa and ~200 kDa observed. The truncated, repressor form and full length form of this protein has been observed at ~83 kDa and ~190 kDa, respectively (Tanimoto, Y., et al. (2012). J Biol Chem. 287(25):21429-21438.). Uncharacterized bands may be observed at ~160 kDa and below ~50 kDa in some cell lysates.
