Western blot analysis of Pax8 on SKOV-3 cell lysate. Proteins were transferred to a PVDF membrane and blocked with 5% BSA in PBS for 1 hour at room temperature. The primary antibody (ER1901-98, 1/500) was used in 5% BSA at room temperature for 2 hours. Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG - HRP Secondary Antibody (HA1001) at 1:5,000 dilution was used for 1 hour at room temperature.

  • ICC staining of Pax8 in SKOV-3 cells (green). Formalin fixed cells were permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 in TBS for 10 minutes at room temperature and blocked with 1% Blocker BSA for 15 minutes at room temperature. Cells were probed with the primary antibody (ER1901-98, 1/100) for 1 hour at room temperature, washed with PBS. Alexa Fluor®488 Goat anti-Rabbit IgG was used as the secondary antibody at 1/100 dilution. The nuclear counter stain is DAPI (blue).
  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded  human thyroid gland tissue anti-Pax8 antibody. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0) for 20 minutes. The tissues were blocked in 5% BSA for 30 minutes at room temperature, washed with ddH2O and PBS, and then probed with the primary antibody (ER1901-98, 1/100)  for 30 minutes at room temperature. The detection was performed using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. Tissues were counterstained with hematoxylin and mounted with DPX.
  • Flow cytometric analysis of Pax8 was done on SKOV-3 cells. The cells were fixed, permeabilized and stained with the primary antibody (ER1901-98, 1/100) (red). After incubation of the primary antibody at room temperature for an hour, the cells were stained with a Alexa Fluor 488-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG Secondary antibody at 1/500 dilution for 30 minutes.Unlabelled sample was used as a control (cells without incubation with primary antibody; black).

FUNCTION

The Pax family encodes transcription factors that function during embryogenesis and regulate the temporal and position-dependent differentiation of cells. Pax-8 is expressed in the developing and adult thyroid, the developing secretory system and at lower levels, in the adult kidney. Pax-8 complexes with TTF-1 and TTF-2 to induce thyroid follicular cell differentiation and thyroid hormone biosynthesis by regulating the expression of sodium iodide symporter (NIS), thyroid peroxidase (TPO), thyroglobulin (TG) and the thyrotropin receptor (TSHR). Treatment of FRTL-5 cells with TGFβ1 decreases Pax-8 mRNA levels and Pax-8 DNA binding activity, which suppresses the expression of TG and the formation of thyrocytes. Patients who have autosomal dominant mutations of the Pax-8 gene develop thyroid dysgenesis. The Pax-8 gene produces six isoforms, A to F, that are generated by alternative splicing and differ in their carboxy-terminal regions. The Pax-8 isoforms display different DNA binding capacities and are thought to be functionally distinct. The gene which encodes Pax-8 maps to human chromosome 2q12-q14.
