Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab87091 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 5 µg/ml.
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 82 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.


  • Function
    Transcriptional factor that can act as an activator or repressor depending on isoform and/or post-translational modifications. Binds to GT and GC boxes promoter elements. Competes with SP1 for the GC-box promoters. Weak activator of transcription but can activate a number of genes involved in different processes such as cell-cycle regulation, hormone-induction and house-keeping.
  • Tissue specificity
    Ubiquitously expressed.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the Sp1 C2H2-type zinc-finger protein family.
    Contains 3 C2H2-type zinc fingers.
  • Post-translational
    Not glycosylated.
    Acetylated by histone acetyltransferase p300, deacetylated by HDACs. Acetylation/deacetylation states regulate transcriptional activity. Acetylation appears to activate transcription. Alternate sumoylation and acetylation at Lys-551 also control transcriptional activity. Ceramides can also regulate acetylation/deacetylation events through altering the interaction of HDAC with SP3. In vitro, C(18)-ceramides, but not C(16)-ceramides, increase the interaction of HDAC1 with SP3 and enhance the deacetylation of SP3 and the subsequent repression of the TERT promoter.
    Sumoylated on all isoforms. Sumoylated on 2 sites in longer isoforms with Lys-551 being the major site. Sumoylation at this site promotes nuclear localization to the nuclear periphery, nuclear dots and PML nuclear bodies. Sumoylation on Lys-551 represses the transactivation activity, except for the largest isoform, L-Sp3, which has little effect on transactivation. Alternate sumoylation and acetylation at Lys-551 also control transcriptional activity.
  • Cellular localization
    Nucleus. Nucleus > PML body. Localizes to the nuclear periphery and in nuclear dots when sumoylated. Some localization in PML nuclear bodies.
