Application Abreviews Notes
WB Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 123 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 123 kDa).


  • Function

    Transcription regulator required for expression of central nervous system (CNS) myelin genes such as MBP and MOG, thereby playing a central role in oligodendrocyte maturation and CNS myelination. Probably acts as a transcription factor that directly binds DNA and activates expression of CNS myelin genes.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed in lung, ARPE-19 cell line, brainstem, uterus and, to a lesser extent, in basal ganglion and liver. Weakly expressed in cerebellum and retina.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the MRF family.
    Contains 1 NDT80 DNA-binding domain.
  • Domain

    A transmembrane region is predicted by sequence analysis tools. However, the protein is nuclear and probably acts as a transcription factor. It is therefore unclear whether the predicted transmembrane region is a hydrophobic region that does not insert into membranes or whether it is a real transmembrane region that may be cleaved when acting as transcription regulator.

    Predicted band size: 123 kDa
    Observed band size: 123 kDa
    Additional bands at: 22 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time: 4 minutes

    This blot was produced using a 4-12% 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% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab85464 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was detected using an anti-rabbit antibody conjugated to HRP, and visualised using ECL development solution.
