  • Target

    • Function

      May play a role in transcriptional regulation.
    • Tissue specificity

      Ubiquitously expressed.
    • Involvement in disease

      Defects in PHF6 are the cause of Boerjeson-Forssman-Lehmann syndrome (BFLS) [MIM:301900]; also known as Boerjeson-Forssman syndrome (BORJ). BFLS is a X-linked recessive disorder characterized by moderate to severe mental retardation, epilepsy, hypogonadism, hypometabolism, obesity with marked gynecomastia, swelling of subcutaneous tissue of the face, narrow palpebral fissure and large but not deformed ears.
    • Sequence similarities

      Contains 2 PHD-type zinc fingers.
    • Post-translational

      Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    • Cellular localization

      Nucleus. Nucleus > nucleolus. Nuclear, it particularly localizes to the nucleolus.

    • All lanes : Anti-PHD finger protein 6/PHF6 antibody [EPR11997] (ab173304) at 1/1000 dilution

      Lane 1 : Wild-type HEK-293 whole cell lysate
      Lane 2 : PHF6 knockout HEK-293 whole cell lysate
      Lane 3 : HeLa whole cell lysate
      Lane 4 : A431 whole cell lysate

      Lysates/proteins at 20 µg per lane.

      Predicted band size: 41 kDa

      Lanes 1 - 4: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab173304 observed at 41 kDa. Red - loading control, ab130007, observed at 130 kDa.

      ab173304 was shown to recognize PHD finger protein 6 in wild-type HEK-293 cells as signal was lost at the expected MW in PHF6 knockout cells. Additional cross-reactive bands were observed in the wild-type and knockout cells. Wild-type and PHF6 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. The membrane was blocked with 3% Milk. Ab173304 and ab130007 (Mouse anti-Vinculin loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 1/1000 dilution and 1/20000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/20000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
