Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab28660 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-FoFr 1/300.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 36 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 36 kDa). Another band of approximately 52 kDa is also detected, we are unsure as the identity of this band.


  • FunctionInvolved in 3'-UTR ARE-mediated MYC stabilization. Binds avidly to the AU-rich element in FOS and IL3/interleukin-3 mRNAs. In the case of the FOS AU-rich element, HUR binds to a core element of 27 nucleotides that contain AUUUA, AUUUUA and AUUUUUA motifs.
  • Tissue specificityUbiquitous.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the RRM elav family.
    Contains 3 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domains.
  • Post-translational
    Methylated at Arg-217 by CARM1 in macrophages in response to LPS challenge.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm.
