  • Function

    Essential component of an SCF-type E3 ligase complex, SCF(NIPA), a complex that controls mitotic entry by mediating ubiquitination and subsequent degradation of cyclin B1 (CCNB1). Its cell-cycle-dependent phosphorylation regulates the assembly of the SCF(NIPA) complex, restricting CCNB1 ubiquitination activity to interphase. Its inactivation results in nuclear accumulation of CCNB1 in interphase and premature mitotic entry. May have an antiapoptotic role in NPM-ALK-mediated signaling events.
  • Tissue specificity

    Widely expressed. Highly expressed in heart, skeletal muscle and testis. Expressed in brain, placenta, lung, kidney, liver, pancreas, spleen, thymus, prostate, ovary small intestine and colon. Weakly or not expressed in leukocytes.
  • Pathway

    Protein modification; protein ubiquitination.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 C3HC-type zinc finger.
  • Developmental stage

    Weakly expressed in G0/G1 phases, abundant during S and G2/M phases, and strongly decreases thereafter.
  • Domain

    The F-box-like region is required for the interaction with SKP1.
  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylated. Phosphorylated on Ser residues at G2/M phase, but not during S and G0 phases. May also be weakly phosphorylated on Tyr residues. Ser-354 phosphorylation, a major site during the course of cell-cycle-dedendent phosphorylation, results in its dissociation from the SCF(NIPA) complex, thereby preventing CCNB1 degradation leading to mitotic entry.

  • IHC image of NIPA staining in human testis formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab63557, 1µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
