Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/10000. Detects a band of approximately 70 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 54 kDa).
ICC 1/250 - 1/500.
IHC-P 1/100.
IP 1/50.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for Flow Cyt.
  • Target

    • FunctionTranscriptional activator, probably constitutive, which binds to the cAMP-responsive element (CRE) (consensus: 5'-GTGACGT[AC][AG]-3'), a sequence present in many viral and cellular promoters. Interaction with JUN redirects JUN to bind to CRES preferentially over the 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate response elements (TRES) as part of an ATF2/JUN complex.
    • Tissue specificityAbundant expression seen in the brain.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the bZIP family. ATF subfamily.
      Contains 1 bZIP domain.
      Contains 1 C2H2-type zinc finger.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylation of Thr-69 and Thr-71 by MAPK14 causes increased transcriptional activity. Also phosphorylated and activated by JNK.
