The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.2 - 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 115 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.
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.
