The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.25 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 71 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 74 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use at an assay dependent concentration.
ELISA titre using peptide based assay: 1:312500.
FunctionTranscriptional repressor. May act as a tumor suppressor. May be involved in development of head, face, limbs and ventral body wall.
Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed with highest levels found in lung, colon, prostate, thymus, testis and ovary. Expression is absent or decreased in many tumor cells.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the krueppel C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family. Hic subfamily. Contains 1 BTB (POZ) domain. Contains 5 C2H2-type zinc fingers.
Post-translational modificationsAcetylated on several residues, including Lys-333. Lys-333 is deacetylated by SIRT1. Sumoylated on Lys-333 by a PIAS family member, which positively regulates transcriptional repression ativity and is enhanced by HDAC4.
