|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||61368 Da|
|Antigen Region||80-110 aa|
|Other Names||E3 SUMO-protein ligase CBX4, 632-, Chromobox protein homolog 4, Polycomb 2 homolog, Pc2, hPc2, CBX4|
|Target/Specificity||This PC2 (CBX4) antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 80-110 amino acids from the N-terminal region of human PC2 (CBX4).|
|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||PC2 (CBX4) Antibody (N-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||E3 SUMO-protein ligase which facilitates SUMO1 conjugation by UBE2I (PubMed:12679040). Involved in the sumoylation of HNRNPK, a p53/TP53 transcriptional coactivator, hence indirectly regulates p53/TP53 transcriptional activation resulting in p21/CDKN1A expression. Monosumoylates ZNF131 (PubMed:22825850).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Nucleus speckle. Note=Localization to nuclear polycomb bodies is required for ZNF131 sumoylation (PubMed:22467880). Localized in distinct foci on chromatin (PubMed:18927235).|

CBX4 is a member of Drosophila Polycomb group gene family. The polycomb group (PcG) genes are essential for maintenance of proper expression patterns of developmental master regulators; changes in expression pf PcG proteins have been associated with cancer. CBX4 is a part of the cellular memory system responsible for the inheritance of gene activity by progeny cells. It participates in maintaining the transcriptionally repressive state of genes. CBX4 is part of acomplex that acts via chromatin remodeling and modification of histones; it mediates monoubiquitination of histone H2A 'Lys-119', rendering chromatin heritably changed in its expressibility. CBX4 is an E3 SUMO-protein ligase which facilitates SUMO1 conjugation by UBE2I.
