  • General notes


    This antibody was raised by a genetic immunization technique. Genetic immunization can be used to generate antibodies by directly delivering antigen-coding DNA into the animal, rather than injecting a protein or peptide (Tang et al. PubMed: 1545867; Chambers and Johnston PubMed 12910245; Barry and Johnston PubMed: 9234514). The animal's cells produce the protein, which stimulates the animal's immune system to produce antibodies against that particular protein. A vector coding for a partial fusion protein was used for genetic immunisation of a mouse and the resulting serum was tested in Western blot against an E.coli lysate containing that partial fusion protein. Genetic immunization offers enormous advantages over the traditional protein-based immunization method. DNA is faster, cheaper and easier to produce and can be produced by standard techniques readily amenable to automation. Furthermore, the antibodies generated by genetic immunization are usually of superior quality with regard to specificity, affinity and recognizing the native protein.

WB 1/1000. Predicted molecular weight: 73 kDa.

This antibody has been tested in Western blot against an E.coli lysate containing the partial recombinant fusion protein used as an immunogen. We have no data on detection of endogenous protein.


  • Function
    Component of the Mediator complex, a coactivator involved in the regulated transcription of nearly all RNA polymerase II-dependent genes. Mediator functions as a bridge to convey information from gene-specific regulatory proteins to the basal RNA polymerase II transcription machinery. Mediator is recruited to promoters by direct interactions with regulatory proteins and serves as a scaffold for the assembly of a functional preinitiation complex with RNA polymerase II and the general transcription factors.
  • Tissue specificity
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in MED17 are the cause of microcephaly postnatal progressive with seizures and brain atrophy (MCPHSBA) [MIM:613668]. It is a disorder characterized by postnatal progressive microcephaly and severe developmental retardation associated with cerebral and cerebellar atrophy. Infants manifest swallowing difficulties leading to failure to thrive, jitteriness, poor visual fixation, truncal arching, seizures. There is no acquisition of developmental milestones and patients suffer from marked spasticity and profound retardation. Progressive microcephaly becomes evident few months after birth.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the Mediator complex subunit 17 family.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
