The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 74 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 70 kDa).
FunctionTranscriptional activator that binds to DNA sequences containing the consensus 5'-WGGA-3'. Transactivates promoters of the hematopoietic growth factor genes CSF2, IL3, IL8, and of the bovine lysozyme gene. Acts synergistically with RUNX1 to transactivate the IL3 promoter (By similarity). Also transactivates the PRF1 promoter in natural killer (NK) cells. Plays a role in the development and function of NK and NK T-cells and in innate immunity. Controls the proliferation and homing of CD8+ T cells via the Kruppel-like factors KLF4 and KLF2 (By similarity). Controls cell senescence in a p53-dependent manner. Can also promote celular transformation through inhibition of the p16 pathway.
Tissue specificityAbundantly expressed in the placenta and in a variety of myeloid leukemia cell lines. Moderate levels of expression in heart, lung, spleen, thymus, peripheral blood lymphocytes, ovary and colon. Lower levels of expression in Jurkat T-cells and other T-cell lines and no expression in brain.
Involvement in diseaseA chromosomal aberration involving ELF4 is a cause of acute myeloid leukemia (AML). Translocation t(X;21)(q25-26;q22) with ERG.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ETS family. Contains 1 ETS DNA-binding domain.
Cellular localizationNucleus > PML body. Accumulation into PML nuclear bodies is mediated by PML.
