|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||Q9BXL7, 172046231|
|Calculated MW||133284 Da|
|Application Notes||CARMA1 antibody can be used for detection of CARMA1 by Western blot at 0.5 to 2 µg/mL. A band at approximately 125 kDa can be detected. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 10 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||CARMA1 Antibody: PPBL, BENTA, BIMP3, IMD11, CARMA1, Caspase recruitment domain-containing protein 11, CARD-containing MAGUK protein 1, Carma 1, caspase recruitment domain family, member 11|
|Reconstitution & Storage||CARMA1 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||CARMA1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in the costimulatory signal essential for T- cell receptor (TCR)-mediated T-cell activation. Its binding to DPP4 induces T-cell proliferation and NF-kappa-B activation in a T-cell receptor/CD3-dependent manner. Activates NF-kappa-B via BCL10 and IKK. Stimulates the phosphorylation of BCL10.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Membrane raft. Note=Colocalized with DPP4 in membrane rafts|
|Tissue Location||Detected in adult peripheral blood leukocytes, thymus, spleen and liver. Also found in promyelocytic leukemia HL- 60 cells, chronic myelogenous leukemia K-562 cells, Burkitt's lymphoma Raji cells and colorectal adenocarcinoma SW480 cells. Not detected in HeLaS3, MOLT-4, A-549 and G431 cells|

CARMA1 Antibody: CARMA proteins belong to the membrane-associated guanylate kinase-like (MAGUK) family of proteins that can function as molecular scaffolds that assist assembly of signal transduction molecules. CARMA1, CARMA2, and CARMA3 share high degrees of sequence and functional homology, but their tissue-specific distribution suggests that they serve distinct biological functions in different cell types. Both CARMA1 and CARMA3 associate with NEMO, the regulatory subunit of the IκK complex, thereby regulating activation of the NF-κB transcription factor. Also, gene inactivation studies showed a complete block in T and B cell immunity as well as an impaired response to LPS, indicating that CARMA1 is a critical regulator in both the adaptive and innate immune systems.
