Phospho-Thr52 Activating Transcription Factor 2 (ATF2) Antibody
Affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody
|Calculated MW||74 KDa|
|Other Names||Cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-2, cAMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-2, Activating transcription factor 2, Cyclic AMP-responsive element-binding protein 2, CREB-2, cAMP-responsive element-binding protein 2, HB16, Histone acetyltransferase ATF2, cAMP response element-binding protein CRE-BP1, ATF2, CREB2, CREBP1|
|Target/Specificity||Synthetic phospho-peptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding THr52 conjugated to KLH.|
|Format||Prepared from rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho and dephosphopeptide affinity columns.|
|Antibody Specificity||Specific for the ~72k ATF2 protein phosphorylated at Thr52. Immunolabeling of the ATF2 band is reduced by treatment of the cells with the PKC catalytic inhibitor Gö6850.|
|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||Phospho-Thr52 Activating Transcription Factor 2 (ATF2) Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|

The transcription factor ATF2 is a member of the ATF/CREB family of leucine zipper proteins. In response to stress stimuli, it activates a variety of gene targets that are involved in oncogenesis, and has been correlated with maintenance of a cancer cell phenotype (Vlahopoulos et al., 2008). Inhibiting ATF2 impedes melanoma development and elicits tumor suppressor function (Bhoumik et al., 2008). To act as a tumor suppressor, ATF2 must localize at the mitochondria, and phosphorylation at Thr52 by PKCε regulates this translocation (Lau et al., 2012).
