HNF-4 (Hepatocyte nuclear factor 4), a member of the steroid/thyroid nuclear receptor superfamily, is a transcriptional factor which expresses in the liver, intestine, kidney, and pancreatic cells. It contains several functional domains: a ligand-independent activation domain (AF1), a zinc finger DNA binding domain, and a ligand-dependent activation domain (AF2). HNF-4 binds to a specific DNA element as a homodimer and regulates the expression of many genes, involved in glucose, fatty acid, and cholesterol metabolisms.

Synthetic peptide surrounding amino acid 454 of rat HNF
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. Mouse small intestine and rat kidney (Cat.# 2702-100) tissue lysates can be used as positive controls.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
