ab111894 was affinity-purified from Rabbit antiserum by affinity-chromatography using epitope-specific phosphopeptide. The antibody against non-phosphopeptide was removed by chromatography using non-phosphopeptide corresponding to the phosphorylation site.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/50 - 1/100. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
Essential component of the COP9 signalosome complex (CSN), a complex involved in various cellular and developmental processes. The CSN complex is an essential regulator of the ubiquitin (Ubl) conjugation pathway by mediating the deneddylation of the cullin subunits of SCF-type E3 ligase complexes, leading to decrease the Ubl ligase activity of SCF-type complexes such as SCF, CSA or DDB2. The complex is also involved in phosphorylation of p53/TP53, c-jun/JUN, IkappaBalpha/NFKBIA, ITPK1 and IRF8/ICSBP, possibly via its association with CK2 and PKD kinases. CSN-dependent phosphorylation of TP53 and JUN promotes and protects degradation by the Ubl system, respectively. Suppresses G-protein-and mitogen-activated protein kinase-mediated signal transduction.
Belongs to the CSN1 family. Contains 1 PCI domain.
The PCI domain is necessary and sufficient for the interactions with other CSN subunits of the complex. Mediates the interaction with CAPN8. The N-terminal part (1-216), which is not required for deneddylating activity and CSN complex formation, is nevertheless essential for other aspects of CSN complex function, such as repression of c-fos/FOS expression.
Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
