PA1-523 detects BMAL1/aryl hydrocarbon nuclear translocator 3 (ARNT3) from hamster and mouse tissues as well as recombinant human BMAL1.
PA1-523 has been sucessfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects a 110 kDa protein which corresponds to the product of a hamster GST-BMAL1 fusion construct overexpressed in E. coli. This antibody detects a non-specific band in U87-MG cell lysates at ~105kDa and in NIH-3T3 cell lysates at ~135kDa.
PA1-523 immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues 582-594 from mouse BMAL1. This sequence is completely conserved between mouse, rat, guinea pig, and human BMAL1. PA1-523 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-075) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Circadian rhythmicity is a basic property of phylogenetically diverse organisms which range from animals and plants, to fungi. Regulation of endogenous biological clocks is regulated at the genetic level by a protein-mediated, autoregulatory feed-back loop. In mammals, several genes that encode members of the basic helix-loop helix (bHLH) PAS (PER-ARNT-SIM) transcription factor family have been shown to play a significant role in regulating circadian oscillations. Transactivation of CLOCK-induced genes is mediated via an E box enhancer (CACGTG) found upstream of target genes. CLOCK-ARNT3 heterodimers bind to E box regulatory elements and stimulate gene transcription. CLOCK has been shown to transactivate the mammalian homolog of Drosophila per. PER, in concert with the product of the mammalian timeless gene (TIM), negatively regulates its own transcription by blocking the activity of the CLOCK-BMAL1 transactivation complex.
