Polyclonal Goat Affinity Purified E B IH
NKX6.1 (NK homeobox factor 6.1; also NKX6A) is a 39-46kD member of the homeodomain family of transcription factors. It is expressed in embryonic ventral neural tube where it drives neural progenitors to form motoneurons and V2-type interneurons. It is also expressed in both fetal and neonatal pancreas where it promotes a b-cell phenotype. NKX6.1 exhibits both transcriptional gene repression (NKX6.2 and Dbx2) and activation (cyclin A2 and B1). When overexpressed, it induces b-cell mitosis. Human NKX6.1 is 367aa in length. It contains a repressor region composed of Pro and Ala (aa136-173), a DNA binding homeobox (aa236-295) and a Glu:Asp-rich transactivation domain (aa305-337). Over aa1-120, human NKX6.1 shares 96% aa identity with mouse NKX6.1.
