  • Function

    Important transcriptional activator in the regulation of genes involved in immune and inflammatory responses. Specifically binds to an IL-1 response element in the IL-6 gene. NF-IL6 also binds to regulatory regions of several acute-phase and cytokines genes. It probably plays a role in the regulation of acute-phase reaction, inflammation and hemopoiesis. The consensus recognition site is 5'-T[TG]NNGNAA[TG]-3'. Functions in brown adipose tissue (BAT) differentiation.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed at low levels in the lung, kidney and spleen.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the bZIP family. C/EBP subfamily.
    Contains 1 bZIP domain.
  • Domain

    the 9aaTAD motif is a transactivation domain present in a large number of yeast and animal transcription factors.
  • Post-translational

    Sumoylated by polymeric chains of SUMO2 or SUMO3.
  • Cellular localization

There are three isoforms of C/EBP Beta; LAP*(38kDa), LAP(35kDa) and LIP(20 kDa). Our information specifies that this antibody only detects LAP* or full length as you describe. The immunogen used to make this antibody covers amino acids 1-21 of the full amino acid sequence. LAP and LIP are missing the first 21 and 151 amino acids respectively, so the MA1-826 antibody should not detect them.

I hope this is helpful. Please contact me again if you have any further questions.

I sincerely apologize for the error. I will ask accounts to issue a refund to your account. Unfortunately we do not have an antibody to CEBPG available. I would suggest going to the "World's Antibody Gateway" on our website to search 249 other suppliers to find the antibody you are looking for. Again, I am very sorry that our datasheet was incorrect, and the datasheet will be changed to the proper information for future reference.
