|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_001139241.1, NP_004619.3|
|Calculated MW||105953 Da|
|Antigen Region||154-183 aa|
|Other Names||DNA repair protein complementing XP-C cells, Xeroderma pigmentosum group C-complementing protein, p125, XPC, XPCC|
|Target/Specificity||This XPC antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 154-183 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human XPC.|
|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||XPC Antibody(N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in global genome nucleotide excision repair (GG-NER) by acting as damage sensing and DNA-binding factor component of the XPC complex. Has only a low DNA repair activity by itself which is stimulated by RAD23B and RAD23A. Has a preference to bind DNA containing a short single-stranded segment but not to damaged oligonucleotides. This feature is proposed to be related to a dynamic sensor function: XPC can rapidly screen duplex DNA for non-hydrogen-bonded bases by forming a transient nucleoprotein intermediate complex which matures into a stable recognition complex through an intrinsic single-stranded DNA- binding activity.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Note=Omnipresent in the nucleus and consistently associates with and dissociates from DNA in the absence of DNA damage. Continuously shuttles between the cytoplasm and the nucleus, which is impeded by the presence of NER lesions|

This gene encodes a component of the nucleotide excision repair (NER) pathway. There are multiple components involved in the NER pathway, including Xeroderma pigmentosum (XP) A-G and V, Cockayne syndrome (CS) A and B, and trichothiodystrophy (TTD) group A, etc. This component, XPC, plays an important role in the early steps of global genome NER, especially in damage recognition, open complex formation, and repair protein complex formation. Mutations in this gene or some other NER components result in Xeroderma pigmentosum, a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by increased sensitivity to sunlight with the development of carcinomas at an early age. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene.
