Wilms?tumor (WT) is an embryonal malignancy of the kidney that affects 1 in 10,000 infants and, like retinoblastoma, is observed in both sporadic and inherited forms. The Wilms?tumor locus has been mapped at chromosome 11p13 as a tumor suppressor gene which encodes a DNA binding protein with four zinc fingers and a glutamine-proline rich amino terminus. The Wilms?tumor protein binds the DNA sequence GCGGGGGCG, a recognition element common to the early growth response (Egr) family of Zn2+ finger transcriptional activators. However, in contrast to Egr transcription factors, WT1 behaves as a transcriptional repressor in transient transfection assays with synthetic promotor constructs.

HEK293T cells were transfected with the pCMV6-ENTRY control or pCMV6-ENTRY WT1 (RC220142) cDNA for 48 hrs and lysed. Equivalent amounts of cell lysates (5 ug per lane) were separated by SDS-PAGE and immunoblotted with anti-WT1.
