Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 90 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 68 kDa).Can be blocked with Human Nrf2 peptide (ab71889).
ICC/IF Use a concentration of 5 µg/ml.


  • FunctionTranscription activator that binds to antioxidant response (ARE) elements in the promoter regions of target genes. Important for the coordinated up-regulation of genes in response to oxidative stress. May be involved in the transcriptional activation of genes of the beta-globin cluster by mediating enhancer activity of hypersensitive site 2 of the beta-globin locus control region.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Highest expression in adult muscle, kidney, lung, liver and in fetal muscle.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the bZIP family. CNC subfamily.
    Contains 1 bZIP domain.
  • DomainAcidic activation domain in the N-terminus, and DNA binding domain in the C-terminus.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylation of Ser-40 by PKC in response to oxidative stress dissociates NFE2L2 from its cytoplasmic inhibitor KEAP1, promoting its translocation into the nucleus.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytosol. Nucleus. Cytosolic under unstressed conditions, translocates into the nucleus upon induction by electrophilic agents.

    Goat polyclonal to Rabbit IgG - H&L - Pre-Adsorbed (HRP) at 1/3000 dilution

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Predicted band size : 68 kDa
    Observed band size : 90 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 40 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.
  • ICC/IF image of ab71890 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) 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 (ab71890, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 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. This antibody also gave a positive result in 4% PFA fixed (10 min) MCF7 cells at 5µg/ml.
