|Calculated MW||100146 Da|
|Other Names||Nuclear factor of activated T-cells, cytoplasmic 2, NF-ATc2, NFATc2, NFAT pre-existing subunit, NF-ATp, T-cell transcription factor NFAT1, NFATC2, NFAT1, NFATP|
|Target/Specificity||A synthetic peptide corresponding to residues in human NFAT1 was used as an immunogen.|
|Format||50 mM Tris-Glycine (pH 7.4), 0.15 M NaCl, 40% Glycerol, 0.01% sodium azide and 0.05% BSA.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||NFAT1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Plays a role in the inducible expression of cytokine genes in T-cells, especially in the induction of the IL-2, IL-3, IL-4, TNF-alpha or GM-CSF. Promotes invasive migration through the activation of GPC6 expression and WNT5A signaling pathway.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Cytoplasmic for the phosphorylated form and nuclear after activation that is controlled by calcineurin-mediated dephosphorylation. Rapid nuclear exit of NFATC is thought to be one mechanism by which cells distinguish between sustained and transient calcium signals The subcellular localization of NFATC plays a key role in the regulation of gene transcription|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in thymus, spleen, heart, testis, brain, placenta, muscle and pancreas. Isoform 1 is highly expressed in the small intestine, heart, testis, prostate, thymus, placenta and thyroid. Isoform 3 is highly expressed in stomach, uterus, placenta, trachea and thyroid|

Nuclear factor of activated T-cells, cytoplasmic 2 (NFAT1) belongs to the NFAT family of transcription factors that are expressed in most immune cell types, and play a central role in the transcription of cytokine genes, such as IL-2, IL-4, IL-5, IL-13, IFN-gamma, TNF-alpha, and GM-CSF. The activity NFAT proteins are regulated by the calcium/calmodulin-dependent phosphatase calcineurin, a target for inhibition by CsA and FK506 (1). NFAT1 is present in the cytosol and only translocates to the nucleus upon T cell receptor (TCR) stimulation, where it becomes a member of the NFAT transcription complex. This complex plays a central role in inducing gene transcription during the immune response (2).
