|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_963853, 42519916|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||71277 Da|
|Application Notes||FOXO3 antibody can be used for detection of FOXO3 by Western blot at 0.5 - 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 4 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||FOXO3 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||FOXO3 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transcriptional activator which triggers apoptosis in the absence of survival factors, including neuronal cell death upon oxidative stress. Recognizes and binds to the DNA sequence 5'-[AG]TAAA[TC]A-3'. Participates in post-transcriptional regulation of MYC: following phosphorylation by MAPKAPK5, promotes induction of miR-34b and miR-34c expression, 2 post- transcriptional regulators of MYC that bind to the 3'UTR of MYC transcript and prevent its translation.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytosol. Nucleus. Note=Retention in the cytoplasm contributes to its inactivation. Translocates to the nucleus upon oxidative stress and in the absence of survival factors|

FOXO3 Antibody: FOXO3 is a ubiquitously expressed 75 kDa protein member of a subfamily of the forkhead homeotic gene family of transcription factors and shuttles between the cytoplasm and nucleus. FOXO transcription factors are key players of cell fate decisions, metabolism, stress resistance, tumor suppression and are regulated by growth factors, oxidative stress or nutrient deprivation. FOXO3 is involved with mTOR in the regulation of autophagy in skeletal muscle, and activates protein degradation in atrophying muscle cells. FOXO3 has also been implicated in several neurodegenerative disorders including aging, neuromuscular disease, systemic lupus erythmatosus, stroke and diabetic complications.
