|Application ||WB, E|
|Calculated MW||98919 Da|
|Antigen Region||497-525 aa|
|Other Names||MKL/myocardin-like protein 1, Megakaryoblastic leukemia 1 protein, Megakaryocytic acute leukemia protein, Myocardin-related transcription factor A, MRTF-A, MKL1, KIAA1438, MAL|
|Target/Specificity||This MKL1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 497-525 amino acids from the Central region of human MKL1.|
|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||MKL1 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transcriptional coactivator of serum response factor (SRF) with the potential to modulate SRF target genes. Suppresses TNF-induced cell death by inhibiting activation of caspases; its transcriptional activity is indispensable for the antiapoptotic function. It may up-regulate antiapoptotic molecules, which in turn inhibit caspase activation (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm Note=Binding to globular actin is required to maintain cytoplasmic localization. Nuclear localization is regulated by MICAL2, which mediates depolymerization of nuclear globular actin, promoting retention of MKL1 in the nucleus and subsequent formation of an active complex with SRF (PubMed:24440334)|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed, has been detected in lung, placenta, small intestine, liver, kidney, spleen, thymus, colon, muscle, heart and brain|

The protein encoded by this gene interacts with the transcription factor myocardin, a key regulator of smooth muscle cell differentiation. The encoded protein is predominantly nuclear and may help transduce signals from the cytoskeleton to the nucleus. This gene is involved in a specific translocation event that creates a fusion of this gene and the RNA-binding motif protein-15 gene. This translocation has been associated with acute megakaryocytic leukemia.
