  • Function

    Plays a role in replication-dependent histone mRNA degradation at the end of phase S. Part of a post-splicing multiprotein complex. Involved in nonsense-mediated decay (NMD) as part of the SMG1C complex, a mRNA surveillance complex that recognizes and degrades mRNAs containing premature translation termination codons (PTCs). The complex probably acts by associating with ribosomes during tranlation termination on mRNPs. If an exon junction complex (EJC) is located 50-55 or more nucleotides downstream from the termination codon, RENT1 is phosphorylated by SMG1, triggering nonsense-mediated decay (NMD). Essential for embryonic viability.
  • Tissue specificity

  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the DNA2/NAM7 helicase family.
    Contains 1 C2H2-type zinc finger.
  • Domain

    The [ST]-Q motif constitutes a recognition sequence for kinases from the PI3/PI4-kinase family.
  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylated by SMG1; required for formation of mRNA surveillance complexes. Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm > P-body. Hyperphosphorylated form is targeted to the P-body, while unphosphorylated protein is distributed throughout the cytoplasm.

Thank you for contacting Abcam. Having looked at all our RENT1/UPF1 antibodies, I believe that ab10510 would be the most likely to work with your sample. Unfortunately I do not have access to the actual immunogen sequence that was used to generate the antibody. However as you mentioned in your original email, between residues 250-300, both Human and Arabidopsis share a high degree of homology and so there is a very good chance that antibody will react with Arabidopsis samples. As this antibody has not been tested in Arabidopsis, we cannot guarantee that it will work for you but what I can offer is our testing discount program. The details of which are below. Testing Discount Program As, ab10510 has not been tested in Arabidopsis, I can offer a discount off a future purchase if you buy ab10510 now, test it in Arabidopsis, and submit feedback to us in the form of an Abreview. It doesn’t matter whether the Abreview is positive or negative, we would just really like to receive your feedback. The discount would be to the value of 1 free primary antibody. If you are interested in this offer, please follow these steps: 1. Reply to this e-mail to let me know that you would like to proceed and test ab10510 in Arabidopsis. I will then send a discount code. This code must be issued before purchasing ab10510 so please wait for my reply before ordering. 2. Purchase ab10510 either by phone, fax, or online (www.abcam.com). 3. Test it in Arabidopsis. 4. Let us know the results, positive or negative, using our Abreview system (this will take about 10 minutes and images are great if you have them!). To find out how to submit an Abreview, please visit: https://www.abcam.com/abreviews. 5. After the review is submitted to us, the discount code becomes active. Simply place your new order by phone, fax, or on the web and mention the discount code. The discount can be redeemed for any primary antibody ordered and the discount code is valid for 4 months after issue. We are always pleased to obtain feedback about our products and any information is greatly appreciated! Even if ab10510 turns out to be unsuitable for Arabidopsis, you will still receive the discount on your next purchase after your Abreview has been submitted. Please let me know if you have any questions about this offer and I would be happy to help you further. The Terms and Conditions of this offer can be found at: www.abcam.com/collaborationdiscount.

Thank you for contacting us. We unfortunately do not have antibodies that are tested with Arabidopsis thaliana species. However after checking the immunogen sequence homology it seems that antibody ab10510 immunogen (amino acid 250 to 300) has about 83% sequence homology. So it is more likely that this antibody could detect the target protein in Arabidopsis thaliana. Arabidopsis thaliana is an untested species so this antibody is eligible for our Abreview testing discount code programme. The discount code will give you next primary antibody at no charge. It will be free. To activate the discount you have to provide us the tested Abreview. Let me know by email if you are interested the I will send you the discount code. I hope this will be helpful. Should you have any other question please do not hesitate to contact me.
