|Application ||IHC, FC, ICC, E|
|Description||This gene encodes a member of the RING zinc finger protein family found in striated muscle and iris. The product of this gene is an E3 ubiquitin ligase that localizes to the Z-line and M-line lattices of myofibrils. This protein plays an important role in the atrophy of skeletal and cardiac muscle and is required for the degradation of myosin heavy chain proteins, myosin light chain, myosin binding protein, and for muscle-type creatine kinase.|
|Immunogen||Synthesized peptide of human MuRF1 (AA: 293-304).|
|Formulation||Purified antibody in PBS with 0.05% sodium azide.|
|Other Names||E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase TRIM63, 6.3.2.-, Iris RING finger protein, Muscle-specific RING finger protein 1, MuRF-1, MuRF1, RING finger protein 28, Striated muscle RING zinc finger protein, Tripartite motif-containing protein 63, TRIM63, IRF, MURF1, RNF28, SMRZ|
IF~~1/200 - 1/1000
FC~~1/200 - 1/400
IHC~~1/200 - 1/1000
|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||MuRF1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||IRF, MURF1, RNF28, SMRZ|
|Function||E3 ubiquitin ligase. Mediates the ubiquitination and subsequent proteasomal degradation of CKM, GMEB1 and HIBADH. Regulates the proteasomal degradation of muscle proteins under amino acid starvation, where muscle protein is catabolized to provide other organs with amino acids. Inhibits de novo skeletal muscle protein synthesis under amino acid starvation. Regulates proteasomal degradation of cardiac troponin I/TNNI3 and probably of other sarcomeric-associated proteins. May play a role in striated muscle atrophy and hypertrophy by regulating an anti- hypertrophic PKC-mediated signaling pathway. May regulate the organization of myofibrils through TTN in muscle cells.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Cytoplasm, myofibril, sarcomere, M line. Cytoplasm, myofibril, sarcomere, Z line. Note=Colocalizes with TNNI3 in myocytes (By similarity) Localizes to the M- and Z-lines in skeletal muscle.|
|Tissue Location||Muscle specific. Selectively expressed in heart and skeletal muscle. Also expressed in the iris|
