Technical Data
Blimp-1 (BLIMP 1, BLIMP1, B Lymphocyte Induced Maturation Protein 1, Positive Regulatory Domain I Binding Factor 1, PR Domain Containing 1, PRDI BF1, PRDM1)
Human BLIMP1(B lymphocyte­induced maturation protein 1, also known as PRDM1)is a 91kD zinc­finger transcriptional repressor that promotes B cell maturation into plasma cells. It is 789aa in length, and contains an N­terminal S­E­T domain (aa64­170) and our C­terminal C2H2­t ype zinc­finger motifs (aa 539­645). The SET domain interacts with chromatin modifers, while the zinc fingers bind to DNA. There is one 80kD 691aa alternate splice form that utilizes an
intenal start site. This results in a substitution of three aa for the first 101aa of the long form, and the loss of the SET domain. At least 10 mutations exist, resulting in proteins of 61­603aa in length. Over aa667­789, human BLIMP1 is 89% aa identical to mouse BLIMP1.

Suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
