|Calculated MW||53684 Da|
|Application & Usage||The peptide is used for blocking the antibody activity of AFX. It usually blocks the antibody activity completely in Western blot analysis by incubating the peptide with equal volume of antibody for 30-60 minutes at 37°C.|
|Other Names||Forkhead box protein O4, Fork head domain transcription factor AFX1, FOXO4, AFX, AFX1, MLLT7|
|Formulation||50 µg (0.5 mg/ml) in phosphate buffered saline (PBS), pH 7.2, containing 50% glycerol, 1% BSA and 0.02% thimerosal.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||AFX Blocking Peptide is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||AFX, AFX1, MLLT7|
|Function||Transcription factor involved in the regulation of the insulin signaling pathway. Binds to insulin-response elements (IREs) and can activate transcription of IGFBP1. Down-regulates expression of HIF1A and suppresses hypoxia-induced transcriptional activation of HIF1A-modulated genes. Also involved in negative regulation of the cell cycle. Involved in increased proteasome activity in embryonic stem cells (ESCs) by activating expression of PSMD11 in ESCs, leading to enhanced assembly of the 26S proteasome, followed by higher proteasome activity.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=When phosphorylated, translocated from nucleus to cytoplasm Dephosphorylation triggers nuclear translocation Monoubiquitination increases nuclear localization. When deubiquitinated, translocated from nucleus to cytoplasm|
|Tissue Location||Heart, brain, placenta, lung, liver, skeletal muscle, kidney and pancreas. Isoform zeta is most abundant in the liver, kidney, and pancreas|
