Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified B
ATF-2 is a member of the group of bZip transcription factors. Heterodimer formation between members of the bZip group is common and is believed to add diversity to the cis-acting elements at which binding of the dimers is directed. Specifically, ATF-2 may dimerize with c-Jun, as occurs in response to E1a, and in so doing shift the binding preference of c-Jun toward ATF/CRE sites (1-3). Deletion analysis has indicated that the N-terminal region of ATF-2 containing threonine at residues 69 and 71 are essential for this purpose. These threonine residues are phosphorylated by JNK/SAPK for transcriptional activation.
Catalog #A0855-44B
ApplicationsSuitable for the detection of ATF-2 by Western blot. 293, a human embryonic kidney cell line can be used as positive control.
Recommended DilutionWestern blot: 2ug/ml
Storage and StabilityMay be stored at 4°C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, aliquot and add glycerol (40-50%). Freeze at -20°C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20°C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
