This antibody is a rabbit polyclonal antibody raised against residues near the C terminus of human ARNT2.
AhR, ARNT1, ARNT2 and BMAL1 are members of a family of transcription factors that contain a basic helix-loop-helix motif and a common "PAS" motif. The aromatic (aryl) hydrocarbon receptor, AhR, is a ligand dependent transcription factor that interacts with specific DNA sequences termed xenobiotic responsive elements (XREs) to activate several genes including CYP1A1, glutathione S-transferase Ya subunit and DT-diaphorase. The Ah receptor nuclear translocator proteins (Arnt 1 or Arnt 2) are required for ligand-dependent nuclear translocation of the Ah receptor and are also necessary for Ah receptor binding to the XRE element. BMAL1 (Brain and Muscle Arnt-like protein 1), also designated Arnt 3, TIC, JAP3 or MOP-3, has been shown to dimerize with Clock and bind to the promoter region of mPer1, suggesting that this protein plays a role in regulation of circadian oscillation in mammals.
