Western blot analysis of TWIST1 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with TWIST1 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00007291-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with TWIST1 monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 3E11 (Cat # H00007291-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
Basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors have been implicated in cell lineage determination and differentiation. The protein encoded by this gene is a bHLH transcription factor and shares similarity with another bHLH transcription factor, Dermo1. The strongest expression of this mRNA is in placental tissue; in adults, mesodermally derived tissues express this mRNA preferentially. Mutations in this gene have been found in patients with Saethre-Chotzen syndrome. [provided by RefSeq
