The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use at 2-5 µg/mg of lysate.
Application notesIs unsuitable for WB.
FunctionComplex that is thought to mediate chromatin assembly in DNA replication and DNA repair. Assembles histone octamers onto replicating DNA in vitro. CAF-1 performs the first step of the nucleosome assembly process, bringing newly synthesized histones H3 and H4 to replicating DNA; histones H2A/H2B can bind to this chromatin precursor subsequent to DNA replication to complete the histone octamer. The CCR4-NOT complex functions as general transcription regulation complex.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the WD repeat HIR1 family. Contains 7 WD repeats.
Developmental stageActive complex is found in G1, S and G2 phases.
Post-translational modificationsDifferentially phosphorylated during cell cycle. During mitosis the p60 subunit of inactive CAF-1 is hyperphosphorylated and displaced into the cytosol. Progressivly dephosphorylated from G1 to S and G2 phase. Phosphorylated p60 is recruited to chromatin undergoing DNA repair after UV irradiation in G1, S or G2 phases.
Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasm. DNA replication foci. Cytoplasmic in M phase.
