The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 78 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionInvolved in regulation of NF-kappa-B transcription factor complexes. Inhibits NF-kappa-B activity without affecting its nuclear translocation upon stimulation. Inhibits DNA-binding of RELA and NFKB1/p50, and of the NF-kappa-B p65-p50 heterodimer and the NF-kappa-B p50-p50 homodimer. Seems also to activate NF-kappa-B-mediated transcription. In vitro, upon association with NFKB1/p50 has transcriptional activation activity and, together with NFKB1/p50 and RELA, is recruited to LCN2 promoters. Promotes transcription of LCN2 and DEFB4. Is recruited to IL-6 promoters and activates IL-6 but decreases TNF-alpha production in response to LPS. Seems to be involved in the induction of inflammatory genes activated through TLR/IL-1 receptor signaling. May promote apoptosis.
Tissue specificityExpressed at high levels in peripheral blood leukocytes and lung, at moderate levels in liver, placenta, and at low levels in spleen, kidney, skeletal muscle and heart.
