|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||EAW90185, 192807286|
|Calculated MW||105114 Da|
|Application Notes||ZBTB4 antibody can be used for detection of ZBTB4 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2.5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||ZBTB4; At least four isoforms of ZBTB4 are known to exist; this antibody will only recognize the longest isoform. This antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other ZBTB protein family members.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||ZBTB4 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||ZBTB4 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transcriptional repressor with bimodal DNA-binding specificity. Represses transcription in a methyl-CpG-dependent manner. Binds with a higher affinity to methylated CpG dinucleotides in the consensus sequence 5'-CGCG-3' but can also bind to the non-methylated consensus sequence 5'-CTGCNA-3' also known as the consensus kaiso binding site (KBS). Can also bind specifically to a single methyl-CpG pair and can bind hemimethylated DNA but with a lower affinity compared to methylated DNA (PubMed:16354688). Plays a role in postnatal myogenesis, may be involved in the regulation of satellite cells self-renewal (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Chromosome. Note=Localizes to chromocenters.|

ZBTB4 Antibody: The ZBTB family of proteins is comprised of diverse zinc finger proteins that also contain a BTB (BR-C, ttk and bab) domain. Similar to Kaiso, a zinc-finger containing protein that can bind methylated CpGs, ZBTB4 can also bind methylated DNA and repress transcription. ZBTB4 has been shown to associate with the Sin3/histone deacetylase co-repressor and repress expression of P21CIP1 as part of a heterodimeric complex with Miz1. In cultured cells, depletion of ZBTB4 promotes cell cycle arrest in response to p53 activation and suppresses apoptosis through regulation of P21CIP1, suggesting that ZBTB4 is a critical determinant of the cellular response to p53 activation. HIPK2, a kinase that is involved in cellular proliferation and survival, phosphorylates and down-regulates ZBTB4 under normal cell growth conditions; this degradation increases with DNA damage.
