GATA3 (GATA binding protein 3) is a member of the GATA family of transcription factors. This ~50-kDa nuclear protein regulates the development and subsequent maintenance of multiple tissues. GATA3 is involved in the development of T lymphocytes (regulates T cell receptor subunit gene expression) and the differentiation of mature T cells to become Th2 cells. The expressed levels of normal or mutant GATA3 are also associated with the behaviors of various cancer cells including estrogen receptor-positive breast carcinoma cells.
The L50-823 monoclonal antibody recognizes human and mouse GATA3.
The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon BB700, which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Blue family of dyes. It is a polymer-based tandem dye developed exclusively by BD Biosciences. With an excitation max of 485 nm and an emission max of 693 nm, BD Horizon BB700 can be excited by the 488 nm laser and detected in a standard PerCP-Cy™5.5 set (eg, 695/40-nm filter). This dye provides a much brighter alternative to PerCP-Cy5.5 with less cross laser excitation off the 405 nm and 355 nm lasers.
