1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 28 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 28 kDa).
FunctionTranscriptional repressor. Down-regulates transcription activation by NF-kappa-B by promoting the deacetylation of RELA at 'Lys-310'. Promotes HDAC1 binding to promoter regions. Down-regulates expression of anti-apoptotic genes that are controlled by NF-kappa-B. Promotes apoptosis in cells that have inadequate adherence to a substrate, a process called anoikis, and may thereby inhibit metastasis. May be a mediator of metastasis suppression in breast carcinoma.
Tissue specificityExpression levels are higher in term placentas than in early placentas. Low levels of expression observed in normal pregnancies and in molar pregnancies.

ab65244 staining BRMS1 in Human breast cancer tissue by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections).
Tissue was blocked with 10% goat serum for 60 minutes; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in citrate buffer. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/1000 in diluent) overnight at 4°C, incubated with HRP-conjugated secondary antibody, before being stained with DAB.
