    • Function

      Involved in transcriptional activation and repression of select genes by chromatin remodeling (alteration of DNA-nucleosome topology). Can stimulate the ATPase activity of the catalytic subunit of these complexes. May be required for CoREST dependent repression of neuronal specific gene promoters in non-neuronal cells. Also involved in vitamin D-coupled transcription regulation via its association with the WINAC complex, a chromatin-remodeling complex recruited by vitamin D receptor (VDR), which is required for the ligand-bound VDR-mediated transrepression of the CYP27B1 gene. Belongs to the neural progenitors-specific chromatin remodeling complex (npBAF complex) and the neuron-specific chromatin remodeling complex (nBAF complex). During neural development a switch from a stem/progenitor to a post-mitotic chromatin remodeling mechanism occurs as neurons exit the cell cycle and become committed to their adult state. The transition from proliferating neural stem/progenitor cells to post-mitotic neurons requires a switch in subunit composition of the npBAF and nBAF complexes. As neural progenitors exit mitosis and differentiate into neurons, npBAF complexes which contain ACTL6A/BAF53A and PHF10/BAF45A, are exchanged for homologous alternative ACTL6B/BAF53B and DPF1/BAF45B or DPF3/BAF45C subunits in neuron-specific complexes (nBAF). The npBAF complex is essential for the self-renewal/proliferative capacity of the multipotent neural stem cells. The nBAF complex along with CREST plays a role regulating the activity of genes essential for dendrite growth.

    Customer reviews and Q&As


    Gracias por contactarnos.

    He chequeado la homología de dichos anticuerpos con BAF155, y el resultado es el siguiente:

    ab64853: Al llevar a cabo un alineamiento de secuencias con BAFF15 (http://www.uniprot.org/uniprot/Q92922) resulta un porcentaje del 54.5% entre ambas secuencias.

    Ab71907: no presenta ninguna homología con la proteína BAFF15. Esta testado (y por tanto garantizado durante 6 meses) en WB e ICC/IF con células humanas.

    ab84453: el inmunógeno corresponde a la secuencia entre los aminoácidos 1164 y el extremo C terminal (aa 1214) de la proteína SMRC2 humana.

    ab135121: se ha generado a partir de un péptido correspondiente a los aminoácidos 1060-1130 de la proteína SMARCC2 humana (uniprot# Q8TAQ2). Comparte pocos residuos (alrededor de 16%) con BAF155.

    Si necesitas alguna otra aclaración, presupuesto o tienes cualquier otra consulta, por favor no dudes en contactarnos.

    Te recuerdo que todos nuestros productos tienen una garantía (Abpromise) de 6 meses, y en caso de no funcionar como se especifica en su datasheet, se os reemplazará el producto de forma gratuita o se reembolsará el importe del mismo.
