The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 26 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionPlays an important role in the ligand-dependent activation of estrogen receptor target genes (PubMed:19858291). May play a role in the silencing of fetal globin genes (PubMed:20688955). Recruits the 5FMC complex to ZNF148, leading to desumoylation of ZNF148 and subsequent transactivation of ZNF148 target genes (By similarity). Plays an important role in the tumorigenicity of glioblastoma cells. Binds to 5-hydroxymethylcytosine (5hmC) and associates with the methylosome complex containing PRMT1, PRMT5, MEP50 and ERH. The CHTOP-methylosome complex associated with 5hmC is recruited to selective sites on the chromosome, where it methylates H4R3 and activates the transcription of genes involved in glioblastomagenesis (PubMed:25284789). Required for effective mRNA nuclear export and is a component of the TREX complex which is thought to couple mRNA transcription, processing and nuclear export, and specifically associates with spliced mRNA and not with unspliced pre-mRNA. TREX is recruited to spliced mRNAs by a transcription-independent mechanism, binds to mRNA upstream of the exon-junction complex (EJC) and is recruited in a splicing- and cap-dependent manner to a region near the 5' end of the mRNA where it functions in mRNA export to the cytoplasm via the TAP/NFX1 pathway. The TREX complex is essential for the export of Kaposi's sarcoma-associated herpesvirus (KSHV) intronless mRNAs and infectious virus production. Stimulates DDX39B ATPase and helicase activities. In cooperation with ALYREF/THOC4 enhances NXF1 RNA binding activity (PubMed:23299939).
Tissue specificityExpressed in an erythroid progenitor cell line derived from peripheral blood. Expressed in glioblastoma cells (PubMed:25284789).
Post-translational modificationsAsymmetrically methylated by PRMT1 (PubMed:25284789). Symmetrically methylated by PRMT5.
Cellular localizationNucleus. Nucleus, nucleolus. Nucleus, nucleoplasm. Nucleus speckle. Mostly associated with facultative heterochromatin (By similarity). Localizes to regions surrounding nuclear speckles known as perispeckles in which TREX complex assembly seems to occur (PubMed:23826332).
