|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||54864 Da|
|Antigen Region||128-157 aa|
|Other Names||Protein Mdm4, Double minute 4 protein, Mdm2-like p53-binding protein, Protein Mdmx, p53-binding protein Mdm4, MDM4, MDMX|
|Target/Specificity||This MDM4 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 128-157 amino acids from the Central region of human MDM4.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||MDM4 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Inhibits p53/TP53- and TP73/p73-mediated cell cycle arrest and apoptosis by binding its transcriptional activation domain. Inhibits degradation of MDM2. Can reverse MDM2-targeted degradation of TP53 while maintaining suppression of TP53 transactivation and apoptotic functions.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in all tissues tested with high levels in thymus|

The human MDM4 gene, which plays a role in apoptosis, encodes a 490-amino acid protein containing a RING finger domain and a putative nuclear localization signal. The MDM4 putative nuclear localization signal, which all Mdm proteins contain, is located in the C-terminal region of the protein. The mRNA is expressed at a high level in thymus and at lower levels in all other tissues tested. MDM4 protein produced by in vitro translation interacts with p53 via a binding domain located in the N-terminal region of the MDM4 protein. MDM4 shows significant structural similarity to p53-binding protein MDM2. Two transcript variants, one protein-coding and the other likely not to be protein-coding, have been found for this gene.
