|Reconstitution & Storage||WAC antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||WAC Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Acts as a linker between gene transcription and histone H2B monoubiquitination at 'Lys-120' (H2BK120ub1). Interacts with the RNA polymerase II transcriptional machinery via its WW domain and with RNF20-RNF40 via its coiled coil region, thereby linking and regulating H2BK120ub1 and gene transcription. Regulates the cell-cycle checkpoint activation in response to DNA damage. Positive regulator of amino acid starvation-induced autophagy. May negatively regulate the ubiquitin proteasome pathway.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus speckle. Nucleus. Note=In distinct nuclear speckles Colocalizes with pre-mRNA processing complexes (By similarity)|

WAC Antibody: The WW domain containing adaptor with coiled-coil protein (WAC) contains a WW domain that mediates protein-protein interactions and colocalizes with RNA splicing factor SC35. Further studies have indicated that WAC is a functional partner of the RNF20/40 complex that ubiquitinates Histone H2B, and that WAC regulates H2B ubiquitination. WAC targets RNF20/40 to associate with RNA polymerase II complex for H2B ubiquitination at active transcription sites. WAC-dependent transcription is also important for cell-cycle checkpoint activation in response to genotoxic stress.
