PA1-029 detects nucleophosmin (NPM) from human, rat, and mouse samples.
PA1-029 has been successfully used in Western blot and immunofluorescence procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~ 38 kDa protein corresponding to human, mouse, and rat nucleophosmin in various cell lysates.
The PA1-029 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acid residues 23-38 and 226-240 from human NPM.
Nucleophosmin (NPM) also called B23, nutramin and NO38 is a ubiquitously expressed phosphoprotein involved in ribosome assembly/transport, cytoplasmic/nuclear trafficking, regulation of DNA polymerase alpha activity, centrosome duplication, and regulation of p53. NPM continuously shuttles between the nucleus and cytoplasm. It has been shown to bind nucleic acid, prevent protein aggregation via its chaperon activities, protect enzymes during thermal denaturation, and facilitate renaturation of chemically denatured proteins. In its cellular structure role, there is evidence suggesting NPM is associated with the centrosome. It is the substrate of CDK2/cyclin E during duplication of centrosomes (cellular division).
Due to the NPM gene interaction with several tumor-associated chromosome translocations, NPM is thought to be a portion of several fusion proteins: NPM-ALK, NPM-RAR, and NPM-MLF1. While it is not thought to be part of the transforming potential of these fusion proteins, it is believed to act as the interface for oligomerization and oncogenic conversion of these tumor promoting fusion proteins.
