|Formulation||100 µl affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||XLF Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||DNA repair protein involved in DNA nonhomologous end joining (NHEJ) required for double-strand break (DSB) repair and V(D)J recombination. May serve as a bridge between XRCC4 and the other NHEJ factors located at DNA ends, or may participate in reconfiguration of the end bound NHEJ factors to allow XRCC4 access to the DNA termini. It may act in concert with XRCC6/XRCC5 (Ku) to stimulate XRCC4-mediated joining of blunt ends and several types of mismatched ends that are noncomplementary or partially complementary (PubMed:16439204, PubMed:16439205, PubMed:17470781). Binds DNA in a length-dependent manner (PubMed:17317666).|

XLF (also called Cernunnos) interacts with the XRCC4-DNA ligase IV complex to promote DNA non-homologous end-joining. It directly interacts with the XRCC4-Ligase IV complex and siRNA-mediated downregulation of XLF in human cell lines leads to radio-sensitivity and impaired DNA non-homologous end-joining. XLF is homologous to the yeast non-homologous end-joining factor Nej1.
