The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/50 - 1/100. Detects a band of approximately 30 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 33 kDa).
FunctionComponent of the Mediator complex, a coactivator involved in regulated gene transcription of nearly all RNA polymerase II-dependent genes. Mediator functions as a bridge to convey information from gene-specific regulatory proteins to the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. Mediator is recruited to promoters by direct interactions with regulatory proteins and serves as a scaffold for the assembly of a functional preinitiation complex with RNA polymerase II and the general transcription factors. Binds to and activates cyclin-dependent kinase CDK8 that phosphorylates the CTD (C-terminal domain) of the large subunit of RNA polymerase II (RNAp II), which may inhibit the formation of a transcription initiation complex.
Tissue specificityHighest levels in pancreas. High levels in heart, liver, skeletal muscle and kidney. Low levels in brain.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the cyclin family. Cyclin C subfamily. Contains 1 cyclin N-terminal domain.
