Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab83397 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
ELISA Use at an assay dependent concentration.

ELISA titre using peptide based assay: 1/312500.

IHC-P Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 22415301
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 48 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 48 kDa). Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.


  • Function

    May function as a transcription factor with dual roles in transcription initiation and termination. Binds to two sites, ME1a1 and ME1a2, within the MYC promoter having greater affinity for the former. Also binds to multiple G/C-rich sites within the promoter of the Sp1 family of transcription factors.
  • Tissue specificity

    Present in kidney, liver and brain. In the brain, highest levels are found in motor cortex and midfrontal cortex (at protein level).
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 6 C2H2-type zinc fingers.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. In brains of Alzheimer disease patients, present in a plaque-like structures.
