MA1-025 detects NFATc2 (NFAT1) from mouse, rat and human tissues. This antibody does not cross react with NFAT2 (NFATc, NFATc1).
MA1-025 has been successfully used in Western blot, ChIP, immunocytochemistry, immunoprecipitation, immunofluorescence, immunohistochemistry (frozen and paraffin), and gel shift procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~140 kDa protein representing phosphorylated NFAT1 in resting immune cells, and an ~120 kDa protein in stimulated cells that represents fully-dephosphorylated NFAT1.
The MA1-025 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues A(51) I S S P S G L A Y P D D V L D Y G L(69) of mouse NFAT1-A, B and C isoforms. The sequence of this N-terminal peptide is ~70% homologous with human NFAT1.
Antibodies to this protein were previously sold as part of a Thermo Scientific Cellomics High Content Screening Kit. This replacement antibody is now recommended for researchers who need an antibody for high content cell-based assays. It has been thoroughly tested and validated for cellular immunofluorescence (IF) applications. Further optimization, including the selection of the most appropriate fluorescent DyLight conjugated secondary antibody, may have to be performed for your high content assay.
MA1-025 can be used with blocking peptide PEP-062.
The nuclear factor of activated T-cells (NFAT) transcription complex is required for the expression of a group of proteins that collectively regulate the immune response. Four NFAT proteins, encoded on separate genes and expressed as several splice variants, have been described: NFAT1 (also known as NFATp or NFATc2), NFAT2 (NFATc or NFATc1), NFAT3, and NFAT4 (NFATx or NFATc3). These proteins show a low level of sequence similarity with the Dorsal/Rel/NFkB family of transcription factors. Another NFAT-related protein termed NFAT5 differs from isoforms 1-4 in that it lacks many of the Fos/Jun contact sites observed in its predecessors and its subcellular localization is not calcineurin-dependent.
