  • Function
    Component of the Mediator complex, a coactivator involved in the regulated transcription of nearly all RNA polymerase II-dependent genes. Mediator functions as a bridge to convey information from gene-specific regulatory proteins to the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. Mediator is recruited to promoters by direct interactions with regulatory proteins and serves as a scaffold for the assembly of a functional preinitiation complex with RNA polymerase II and the general transcription factors. May be part of a complex containing NF2/merlin that participates in cellular signaling to the actin cytoskeleton downstream of tyrosine kinase signaling pathways.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed. Highly expressed in vascular tissues such as placenta, testis and liver.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the Mediator complex subunit 28 family.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Membrane. According to PubMed:15467741, it is cytoplasmic and mainly membrane-associated.

  • ab73294 at 2.5µg/ml staining MED28 in human brain tissue section by Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/ PFA fixed paraffin-embedded tissue sections).

  • ICC/IF image of ab73294 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10mins) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab73294, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899 Dylight 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
