SIX2 is a member of the vertebrate gene family that is homologous to the Drosophila 'sine oculis' homeobox protein. It is a transcription factor that, like other members of this family, may be involved in limb or eye development (1). SIX2 is expressed in a subset of metanephric mesenchyme, where its expression is maintained throughout kidney development; no expression is detected in adult mouse kidneys (2). Moreover, it is strongly expressed in skeletal muscle (3).
Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
