|Function||Crucial silencing factor contributing to the initiation of X inactivation mediated by Xist RNA that occurs during embryogenesis and in lymphoma (By similarity). Binds to DNA at special AT-rich sequences, the consensus SATB1-binding sequence (CSBS), at nuclear matrix- or scaffold-associated regions. Thought to recognize the sugar-phosphate structure of double-stranded DNA. Transcriptional repressor controlling nuclear and viral gene expression in a phosphorylated and acetylated status-dependent manner, by binding to matrix attachment regions (MARs) of DNA and inducing a local chromatin-loop remodeling. Acts as a docking site for several chromatin remodeling enzymes (e.g. PML at the MHC-I locus) and also by recruiting corepressors (HDACs) or coactivators (HATs) directly to promoters and enhancers. Modulates genes that are essential in the maturation of the immune T-cell CD8SP from thymocytes. Required for the switching of fetal globin species, and beta- and gamma-globin genes regulation during erythroid differentiation. Plays a role in chromatin organization and nuclear architecture during apoptosis. Interacts with the unique region (UR) of cytomegalovirus (CMV). Alu-like motifs and SATB1- binding sites provide a unique chromatin context which seems preferentially targeted by the HIV-1 integration machinery. Moreover, HIV-1 Tat may overcome SATB1-mediated repression of IL2 and IL2RA (interleukin) in T-cells by binding to the same domain than HDAC1. Delineates specific epigenetic modifications at target gene loci, directly up-regulating metastasis-associated genes while down-regulating tumor-suppressor genes. Reprograms chromatin organization and the transcription profiles of breast tumors to promote growth and metastasis.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus matrix. Nucleus, PML body. Note=Organized into a cage-like network anchoring loops of heterochromatin and tethering specialized DNA sequences. When sumoylated, localized in promyelocytic leukemia nuclear bodies (PML NBs)|

SATB1 Antibody: Human special AT-rich sequence-binding protein-1 (SATB1) is a nuclear matrix/scaffold-associated region DNA-binding protein, predominantly expressed in the thymus and pre-B cells. Like its homolog SATB2, SATB1 selectively binds double-stranded, special AT-rich DNA sequences in which one strand exclusively consists of well-mixed A, T, and C nucleotides. SATB1 contains a dimerization domain that shares similarity with the PDZ motif, identified as an indispensable element for high-affinity binding of SATB1 to DNA. SATB1 constitutes a functional nuclear architecture that has a 'cage-like' protein distribution surrounding heterochromatin and regulates gene expression through chromatin remodeling/HDAC (histone deacetylase complex) and transcription factors recruitment. SATB1 functions as a 'genome organizer' essential for proper T-cell development. Recent studies show that SATB1 is necessary for breast cancer cells to become metastatic, and when ectopically expressed in non-metastatic cells, can induce invasive activity in vivo. At least two isoforms of SATB1 are known to exist.
