Purification notesab54407 was purified using protein G column chromatography from culture supernatant of hybridoma cultured in a medium containing bovine IgG depleted (approximately 95%) fetal bovine serum and filtered through a 0.22µm membrane.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at an assay dependent dilution. Predicted molecular weight: 116 kDa. Detects a band of approximately 38 kDa for the recombinant protein.
Use at an assay dependent dilution.
FunctionPlays a role in the inducible expression of cytokine genes in T-cells, especially in the induction of the IL-2.
Tissue specificityIsoform 1 is predominantly expressed in thymus and is also found in peripheral blood leukocytes and kidney. Isoform 2 is predominantly expressed in skeletal muscle and is also found in thymus, kidney, testis, spleen, prostate, ovary, small intestine, heart, placenta and pancreas. Isoform 3 is expressed in thymus and kidney. Isoform 4 is expressed in thymus and skeletal muscle.
DomainRel Similarity Domain (RSD) allows DNA-binding and cooperative interactions with AP1 factors.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated by NFATC-kinase; dephosphorylated by calcineurin.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Cytoplasmic for the phosphorylated form and nuclear after activation that is controlled by calcineurin-mediated dephosphorylation. Rapid nuclear exit of NFATC is thought to be one mechanism by which cells distinguish between sustained and transient calcium signals. The subcellular localization of NFATC plays a key role in the regulation of gene transcription.
