Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab66781 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 4 - 8 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 1.25 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately >87 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 95 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.

Target

  • Function
    Plays a role in the inducible expression of cytokine genes in T-cells, especially in the induction of the IL-2 and IL-4. Transcriptionally repressed by estrogen receptors; this inhibition is further enhanced by estrogen. Increases the transcriptional activity of PPARG and has a direct role in adipocyte differentiation. May play an important role in myotube differentiation. May play a critical role in cardiac development and hypertrophy. May play a role in deafferentation-induced apoptosis of sensory neurons.
  • Tissue specificity
    Highly expressed in placenta, lung, kidney, testis and ovary. Weakly expressed in spleen and thymus. Not expressed in peripheral blood lymphocytes. Detected in hippocampus.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 IPT/TIG domain.
    Contains 1 RHD (Rel-like) domain.
  • Domain
    Rel Similarity Domain (RSD) allows DNA-binding and cooperative interactions with AP1 factors.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylated by NFATC-kinases; dephosphorylated by calcineurin. Phosphorylated on Ser-168 and Ser-170 by MTOR, IRAK1, MAPK7 and MAPK14, on Ser-213 and Ser-217 by MAPK8 and MAPK9, and on Ser-289 and Ser-344 by RPS6KA3. Phosphorylated by GSK3B.
    Ubiquitinated, leading to its degradation by the proteasome and reduced transcriptional activity. Ubiquitination and reduction in transcriptional activity can be further facilitated through GSK3B-dependent phosphorylation. Polyubiquitin linkage is mainly through 'Lys-48'.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. 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.

    Predicted band size : 95 kDa
    Observed band size : >87 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 21 kDa,68 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
