Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab1371 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 0.3 - 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 40 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 38 kDa).Can be blocked with Human ATF-4 peptide (ab22854).


  • FunctionTranscriptional activator. Binds the cAMP response element (CRE) (consensus: 5'-GTGACGT[AC][AG]-3'), a sequence present in many viral and cellular promoters. It binds to a Tax-responsive enhancer element in the long terminal repeat of HTLV-I.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the bZIP family.
    Contains 1 bZIP domain.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cell membrane. Nucleus. Colocalizes with GABBR1 in hippocampal neuron dendritic membranes.
