Lead Researcher: Prof. Yoram Groner


Monoclonal antibody to Runx-3
Description: Monoclonal antibody to Runx-3 raised against the Runx3 peptide TPSTPSPRGSLSTTSHF. Available clones: 62, H8.
Runx-3 (Runt-related transcription factor 3) is a transcription factor, and a master regulator of lineage specific gene expression in several important developmental pathways. It binds to the core DNA sequence 5'-YGYGGT-3' found in a number of enhancers and promoters, and can either activate or suppress transcription. It functions as a tumor suppressor, and is frequently deleted or transcriptionally silenced in cancer.
