The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Application notesIP: Use 4 - 8 µl immunoprecipitates MAFF from the A431 cell line.
WB: 1/4000 - 1/8000. Predicted molecular weight: 17 kDa. Dilute the antibody in PBS containing 5.0% non-fat dry milk and 0.05 % Tween 20.
Staining of the MAFF band in immunoblotting is specifically inhibited by the immunizing peptide.
Not yet tested in other applications.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
FunctionSince they lack a putative transactivation domain, the small Mafs behave as transcriptional repressors when they dimerize among themselves. However, they seem to serve as transcriptional activators by dimerizing with other (usually larger) basic-zipper proteins and recruiting them to specific DNA-binding sites. Small Maf proteins heterodimerize with Fos and may act as competitive repressors of the NF-E2 transcription factor.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the bZIP family. Maf subfamily. Contains 1 bZIP domain.
