DescriptionRabbit polyclonal to HIF3 alpha / IPAS
SpecificityWe have observed both nuclear and cytoplasmic localisation in IF with this antibody and we believe this could be due to dysregulated expression of HIF3 alpha / IPAS in our cell lines.

FunctionInvolved in adaptive response to hypoxia. Suppresses hypoxia-inducible expression of HIF1A and EPAS1. Binds to core DNA sequence 5'-TACGTG-3' within the hypoxia response element (HRE) of target gene promoters. The complex HIF3A-ARNT activates the transcription of reporter genes driven by HRE. Isoform 4 has a dominant-negative function of inactivating HIF1A-mediated transcription. Isoform 4 attenuates the binding of HIF1A to hypoxia-responsive elements (HRE), thus inhibiting HRE-driven transcription. Hypoxia induces down-regulation of isoform 4, leading to activation of HIF1A in hypoxia. Conversely, upon restoring normoxia, the expression of isoform 4 increases and thereby secure an inhibition of HIF1A activity. Isoform 4 may be a negative regulator of hypoxia-inducible gene expression in the kidney and may be involved in renal tumorigenesis. Functions as an inhibitor of angiogenesis in the cornea.
Tissue specificityExpressed in kidney. Expressed abundantly in lung epithelial cells. Expression is regulated in an oxygen-dependent manner.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain.
Contains 2 PAS (PER-ARNT-SIM) domains.
modificationsIn normoxia, hydroxylated on Pro-492 in the oxygen-dependent degradation domain (ODD) by PHD. The hydroxylated proline promotes interaction with VHL, initiating rapid ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation.
Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasm. In the nuclei of all periportal and perivenous hepatocytes. In the distal perivenous zone, detected in the cytoplasm of the hepatocytes.

ICC/IF image of ab10134 stained human HeLa cells. The cells were methanol fixed (5 min) and incubated with the antibody (ab10134, 5µg/ml) for 1h at room temperature. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Image-iTTM FX Signal Enhancer was used as the primary blocking agent, 5% BSA (in TBS-T) was used for all other blocking steps. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue). Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red).
ICC/IF image of ab10134 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% PFA fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal Goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab10134, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 Goat anti-Rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.

This blot was produced using a 10% Bis-tris gel under the MOPS buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 50 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 5% milk before being incubated with ab10134 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution. The band detected by ab10134 migrates at approximately 60-kDa. Although the predicted molecular weight of this protein is 72-kDa, the 60-kDa band has been observed in the literature. The intensity of this band has been shown to increase in cells exposed to hypoxic conditions (PMID:16775626).
