Description: Rabbit IgG polyclonal antibody for Myocyte-specific enhancer factor 2C(MEF2C) detection. Tested with WB, IHC-P in Human, Rat.
Background: MEF2C(myocyte enhancer factor 2C) also called  MADS box transcription enhancer factor 2, polypeptide C, is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MEF2C gene. MEF2C is a transcription factor in the Mef2 family.MEF2C, however, is induced late during myogenic differentiation and has a strict tissue-specific pattern of expression not seen in MEF2A or MEF2B. By fluorescence in situ hybridization, the human MEF2C is mapped to chromosome 5q14, a region with homology of synteny to the mouse location.MEF2C may be involved with maintenance of the differentiated state. Both MEF2A and Mef2c programmed similar profiles of gene expression in the heart that included genes involved in extracellular matrix remodeling, ion handling, and metabolism. NCOA2 mediates the coactivation of MEF2C-dependent transcription through interaction with the MADS box domain of MEF2C.

NCBI Summary for MEF2C
This locus encodes a member of the MADS box transcription enhancer factor 2 (MEF2) family of proteins, which play a role in myogenesis. The encoded protein, MEF2 polypeptide C, has both trans-activating and DNA binding activities. This protein may play a role in maintaining the differentiated state of muscle cells. Mutations and deletions at this locus have been associated with severe mental retardation, stereotypic movements, epilepsy, and cerebral malformation. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2010]
UniProt Comments for MEF2C
MEF2C: transcription factor of the MADS family which binds specifically to the MEF2 element present in the regulatory regions of many muscle-specific genes. May be involved in myogenesis, neurogenesis and in the development of cortical architecture. Three splice-variant isoforms have been described.
