KLF8 polyclonal antibody (Cat # PAB6183) staining (2 ug/mL) of human kidney lysate (RIPA buffer, 30 ug total protein per lane). Primary incubated for 1 hour. Detected by western blot using chemiluminescence.
This gene encodes a protein which is a member of the Sp/KLF family of transcription factors. Members of this family contain a C-terminal DNA-binding domain with three Kruppel-like zinc fingers. The encoded protein is thought to play an important role in the regulation of epithelial to mesenchymal transition, a process which occurs normally during development but also during metastasis. A pseudogene has been identified on chromosome 16. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq
