|Other Names||Transcriptional activator protein Pur-beta, Purine-rich element-binding protein B, PURB|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Has capacity to bind repeated elements in single- stranded DNA such as the purine-rich single strand of the PUR element located upstream of the MYC gene. Plays a role in the control of vascular smooth muscle (VSM) alpha-actin gene transcription as repressor in myoblasts and fibroblasts. Participates in transcriptional and translational regulation of alpha-MHC expression in cardiac myocytes by binding to the purine- rich negative regulatory (PNR) element. Modulates constitutive liver galectin-3 gene transcription by binding to its promoter. May play a role in the dendritic transport of a subset of mRNAs (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in myocardium of heart failure patients.|

This gene product is a sequence-specific, single-strandedDNA-binding protein. It binds preferentially to the single strandof the purine-rich element termed PUR, which is present at originsof replication and in gene flanking regions in a variety ofeukaryotes from yeasts through humans. Thus, it is implicated inthe control of both DNA replication and transcription. Deletion ofthis gene has been associated with myelodysplastic syndrome andacute myelogenous leukemia.
