Target

  • Function
    Transcription activator that binds to antioxidant response (ARE) elements in the promoter regions of target genes. Important for the coordinated up-regulation of genes in response to oxidative stress. May be involved in the transcriptional activation of genes of the beta-globin cluster by mediating enhancer activity of hypersensitive site 2 of the beta-globin locus control region.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed. Highest expression in adult muscle, kidney, lung, liver and in fetal muscle.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the bZIP family. CNC subfamily.
    Contains 1 bZIP domain.
  • Domain
    Acidic activation domain in the N-terminus, and DNA binding domain in the C-terminus.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylation of Ser-40 by PKC in response to oxidative stress dissociates NFE2L2 from its cytoplasmic inhibitor KEAP1, promoting its translocation into the nucleus.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm > cytosol. Nucleus. Cytosolic under unstressed conditions, translocates into the nucleus upon induction by electrophilic agents.

Answer

Thank you for contacting us. I am sorry to hear that this antibody is not providing satisfactory results. We have not had a band reported to use of this size, the predicted MW is around 68 kD but we saw the band a bit higher at 100 kD. We do not have testing data to spoort the use of this antibody in mouse however, so I am wondering if this antibody is reacting non-specifically in mouse samples. We do have ab31162 and ab92946 which are tested and guaranteed to work in mouse, these may be better antibodies for you to work with. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
