Application Abreviews Notes
ELISA 1/5000.

  • FunctionThis protein binds the cAMP response element (CRE) (consensus: 5'-GTGACGT[AC][AG]-3'), a sequence present in many viral and cellular promoters. Binds to the Tax-responsive element (TRE) of HTLV-I. Mediates PKA-induced stimulation of CRE-reporter genes.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in ATF1 may be a cause of angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma (AFH) [MIM:612160]. A distinct variant of malignant fibrous histiocytoma that typically occurs in children and adolescents and is manifest by nodular subcutaneous growth. Characteristic microscopic features include lobulated sheets of histiocyte-like cells intimately associated with areas of hemorrhage and cystic pseudovascular spaces, as well as a striking cuffing of inflammatory cells, mimicking a lymph node metastasis. Note=Chromosomal aberrations involving ATF1 are found in patients with angiomatoid fibrous histiocytoma. Translocation t(12;16)(q13;p11.2) with FUS generates a chimeric ATF1/FUS protein. Translocation t(12;22)(q13;q12) with EWSR1 generates a chimeric ATF1/EWSR1 protein.

Thank you for contacting Abcam.

Please find attached a copy of the alignment between the bovine and human sequences. Based on the level of homolgy between, I do not think that the antibody ab6616 would react with bovine tissue.
