  • FunctionUbiquitin-editing enzyme that contains both ubiquitin ligase and deubiquitinase activities. Essential component of a ubiquitin-editing protein complex, comprising also RNF11, ITCH and TAX1BP1, that ensures the transient nature of inflammatory signaling pathways. Upon TNF stimulation, deubiquitinates 'Lys-63'-polyubiquitin chains on RIPK1 and catalyzes the formation of 'Lys-48'-polyubiquitin chains. This leads to RIPK1 proteasomal degradation and consequently termination of the TNF- or LPS-mediated activation of NF-kappa-B. In vitro able to deubiquitinate both 'Lys-48'- and 'Lys-63' polyubiquitin chains. Inhibitor of programmed cell death. Has a role in the function of the lymphoid system.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the peptidase C64 family.
    Contains 7 A20-type zinc fingers.
    Contains 1 OTU domain.
  • DomainThe A20-type zinc fingers mediate the ubiquitin ligase activity.
    The OTU domain mediates the deubiquitinase activity.

  • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of Human placenta tissue labelling TNFAIP3 with ab13597 at 5µg/ml. Staining was enhanced by boiling tissue sections in 10mM sodium citrate buffer, pH6.0 for 10-20 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 minutes.

    Goat Anti-Mouse IgG H&L (HRP) preadsorbed (ab97040) at 1/5000 dilution
    developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Observed band size : 90 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 15 kDa,34 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 20 minutes
  • Overlay histogram showing HepG2 cells stained with ab13597 (red line). The cells were fixed with methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab13597, 2µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22°C. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22°C. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a decreased signal in HepG2 cells fixed with methanol (5 min)/permeabilized in 0.1% PBS-Tween used under the same conditions.

Thank you for your enquiry. Our two A20 antibodies raised in mice have been tested for Western blotting on human samples. Human A20 is 89% homologous with the sequence for mouse A20. So there is a good chance these antibodies will recognize mouse A2...
