|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Other Accession||NP_620775, 109148531|
|Calculated MW||46663 Da|
|Application Notes||CCDC98 antibody can be used for detection of CCDC98 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 5 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||CCDC98 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||CCDC98 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in DNA damage response and double-strand break (DSB) repair. Component of the BRCA1-A complex, acting as a central scaffold protein that assembles the various components of the complex and mediates the recruitment of BRCA1. The BRCA1-A complex specifically recognizes 'Lys-63'-linked ubiquitinated histones H2A and H2AX at DNA lesion sites, leading to target the BRCA1-BARD1 heterodimer to sites of DNA damage at DSBs. This complex also possesses deubiquitinase activity that specifically removes 'Lys-63'-linked ubiquitin on histones H2A and H2AX.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus Note=Localizes at sites of DNA damage at double-strand breaks (DSBs).|

CCDC98 Antibody: CCDC98, also known as Abraxas 1, was identified through protein binding studies using the breast and ovarian predisposition protein BRCA1 as the binding target. CCDC98 recruits RAP80, a ubiquitin-binding protein, to BRCA1, allowing the formation of BRCA1 foci in response to DNA damage caused by ionizing radiation. Both CCDC98 and RAP80 are required for DNA damage resistance, G2-M checkpoint control, and DNA repair. Cells depleted of either CCDC98 or RAP80 exhibited increased sensitivity to ionizing radiation, although not as much as in BRCA1-depleted cells, suggesting that CCDC98 and RAP80 control only part of the DNA damage response role of BRCA1. At least two isoforms of CCDC98 are known to exist.
