Activating Transcription Factor 4 (ATF4) Monoclonal Antibody
Catalog no.: 56583 (clone S360A-24)
Format: 100ug (1mg/ml) Protein G-purified antibody in PBS, pH 7.4, 0.1% sodium azide, 50% glycerol.
ATF4 belongs to the large ATF/CREB family of transcription factors. These proteins bind DNA via their basic region and dimerize via their leucine zipper domain to form a variety of homo- and heterodimers that regulate gene transcription. Two alternative transcripts encoding the same protein have been described. ATF4 transcription factor is also known to play role in osteoblast differentiation. Terminal osteoblast differentiation, is significantly inhibited by the inactivation of JNK; JNK inactivation downregulates expression of ATF-4.
Antigen: Fusion protein corresponding to aa 25-327 of human ATF4. This sequence is 86% identical in rat, 85% identical in mouse, and <50% identical in ATF5. Accession nos: NP_001666.2, P18848 Gene ID: 468 Host Species: Mouse Antibody Class: IgG2a Specificity: This antibody recognizes human and rat ATF4.
Immunoblotting: use at 1-5ug/ml. A band of ~60kDa is detected.
Immunofluorescence: use at 10ug/ml.
Detection of ATF4 in rat brain lysate with #56583.
