|Application ||FC, IHC-P, WB, E|
|Other Accession||G3V909, F6VAN0|
|Calculated MW||74585 Da|
|Antigen Region||350-377 aa|
|Other Names||Cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 alpha, cAMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 alpha, Activating transcription factor 6 alpha, ATF6-alpha, Processed cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 alpha, ATF6|
|Target/Specificity||This ATF6 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 350-377 amino acids of human ATF6.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||ATF6 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transmembrane glycoprotein of the endoplasmic reticulum that functions as a transcription activator and initiates the unfolded protein response (UPR) during endoplasmic reticulum stress. Cleaved upon ER stress, the N-terminal processed cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 alpha translocates to the nucleus where it activates transcription of genes involved in the UPR. Binds DNA on the 5'-CCAC[GA]-3'half of the ER stress response element (ERSE) (5'-CCAAT-N(9)-CCAC[GA]-3') and of ERSE II (5'- ATTGG-N-CCACG-3'). Binding to ERSE requires binding of NF-Y to ERSE. Could also be involved in activation of transcription by the serum response factor. May play a role in foveal development and cone function in the retina.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein|
