|Other Names||AF4/FMR2 family member 4, ALL1-fused gene from chromosome 5q31 protein, Protein AF-5q31, Major CDK9 elongation factor-associated protein, AFF4, AF5Q31, MCEF|
|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||Key component of the super elongation complex (SEC), a complex required to increase the catalytic rate of RNA polymerase II transcription by suppressing transient pausing by the polymerase at multiple sites along the DNA. In the SEC complex, AFF4 acts as a central scaffold that recruits other factors through direct interactions with ELL proteins (ELL, ELL2 or ELL3) and the P-TEFb complex. In case of infection by HIV-1 virus, the SEC complex is recruited by the viral Tat protein to stimulate viral gene expression.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus. Note=Associates to transcriptionally active chromatin but not at snRNA genes.|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed. Strongly expressed in heart, placenta, skeletal muscle, pancreas and to a lower extent in brain.|
