|Other Names||Aprataxin, 3---, Forkhead-associated domain histidine triad-like protein, FHA-HIT, APTX, AXA1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP8863c was selected from the Center region of human APTX. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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||DNA-binding protein involved in single-strand DNA break repair, double-strand DNA break repair and base excision repair. Resolves abortive DNA ligation intermediates formed either at base excision sites, or when DNA ligases attempt to repair non- ligatable breaks induced by reactive oxygen species. Catalyzes the release of adenylate groups covalently linked to 5'-phosphate termini, resulting in the production of 5'-phosphate termini that can be efficiently rejoined. Also able to hydrolyze adenosine 5'- monophosphoramidate (AMP-NH(2)) and diadenosine tetraphosphate (AppppA), but with lower catalytic activity.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus, nucleoplasm. Nucleus, nucleolus. Note=Upon genotoxic stress, colocalizes with XRCC1 at sites of DNA damage. Colocalizes with MDC1 at sites of DNA double-strand breaks. Interaction with NCL is required for nucleolar localization|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed. In brain, it is expressed in the posterior cortex, cerebellum, hippocampus and olfactory bulb Isoform 1 is highly expressed in the cerebral cortex and cerebellum, compared to isoform 2.|

APTX is encoding a member of the histidine triad (HIT) superfamily, some of which have nucleotide-binding and diadenosine polyphosphate hydrolase activities. The encoded protein may play a role in single-stranded DNA repair.
