The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 68 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 62 kDa).
Use a concentration of 1 - 5 µg/ml.
FunctionRNA and ssDNA-binding protein that may play specific roles during transcription initiation at distinct promoters. Can enter the preinitiation complex together with the RNA polymerase II (Pol II).
Tissue specificityUbiquitous. Observed in all fetal and adult tissues.
Involvement in diseaseNote=A chromosomal aberration involving TAF15/TAF2N is found in a form of extraskeletal myxoid chondrosarcomas (EMC). Translocation t(9;17)(q22;q11) with NR4A3.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the RRM TET family. Contains 1 RanBP2-type zinc finger. Contains 1 RRM (RNA recognition motif) domain.
Post-translational modificationsDimethylated by PRMT1 at Arg-206 to asymmetric dimethylarginine. The methylation may favor nuclear localization and positive regulation of TAF15 transcriptional activity. Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasm. Shuttles from the nucleus to the cytoplasm.
