|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, FC, E|
|Calculated MW||27084 Da|
|Antigen Region||95-128 aa|
|Other Names||Protein lin-28 homolog B, Lin-28B, LIN28B, CSDD2|
|Target/Specificity||This LIN28B antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 95-128 amino acids of human LIN28B.|
|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||LIN28B Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Suppressor of microRNA (miRNA) biogenesis, including that of let-7 and possibly of miR107, miR-143 and miR-200c. Binds primary let-7 transcripts (pri-let-7), including pri-let-7g and pri-let-7a-1, and sequester them in the nucleolus, away from the microprocessor complex, hence preventing their processing into mature miRNA (PubMed:22118463). Does not act on pri-miR21 (PubMed:22118463). The repression of let-7 expression is required for normal development and contributes to maintain the pluripotent state of embryonic stem cells by preventing let-7-mediated differentiation. When overexpressed, recruits ZCCHC11/TUT4 uridylyltransferase to pre-let-7 transcripts, leading to their terminal uridylation and degradation (PubMed:19703396). This activity might not be relevant in vivo, as LIN28B-mediated inhibition of let-7 miRNA maturation appears to be ZCCHC11- independent (PubMed:22118463). Interaction with target pre-miRNAs occurs via an 5'-GGAG-3' motif in the pre-miRNA terminal loop. Mediates MYC-induced let-7 repression (By similarity). When overexpressed, isoform 1 stimulates growth of the breast adenocarcinoma cell line MCF-7. Isoform 2 has no effect on cell growth.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Nucleus, nucleolus. Cytoplasm. Note=Predominantly nucleolar (PubMed:22118463). In Huh7 cells, predominantly cytoplasmic, with only a subset of cells exhibiting strong nuclear staining; however, the specificity of the polyclonal antibody used in these experiments has not been not documented (PubMed:16971064)|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at high levels in the placenta and, at mucher lower, in testis and fetal liver (PubMed:16971064) Isoform 1 is only detected in placenta and in moderately and poorly differentiated hepatocellular carcinoma cells (at protein level). Isoform 2 is detected in fetal liver, non-tumor liver tissues, as well as well-differentiated tumor tissues (at protein level). Tends to be up-regulated in triple-negative (ER-,PR-,HER2-) breast tumors, as well as in liver, ovarian, and thyroid carcinomas (PubMed:22118463)|

Lin-28 homolog B (LIN28B) is overexpressed in hepatocellular carcinoma. The heterochronic gene lin-28 is a key regulator of developmental timing in the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Similar with lin-28 proteins, LIN28B conserves a cold shock domain and a pair of CCHC zinc finger domains. Phylogenetic analysis suggests that they might arise as a result of duplication from an ancestral gene. Overexpression of LIN28B was noted in most HCC cell lines and clinical samples. A short LIN28B isoform was also identified in non-tumor liver tissue and fetal liver. Although predominantly localized in the cytoplasm, LIN28B protein shows cell cycle-dependent nuclear translocation in Huh7 cells. Induced expression of exogenous LIN28B in a tet-off cell line promoted cancer cell proliferation.
