PA1-023 detects nuclear factor of activated T-cells 5 (NFAT5) from human and mouse cells as well as recombinant human protein.
PA1-023 has been successfully used in Western blot, immunofluorescence, immunoprecipitation, gel shift and immunocytochemistry procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~170 kDa protein representing NFAT5 in HEK293 cells transfected with the human NFAT5 gene. Immunocytochemical staining of NFAT5 in HEK293 cells transfected with the human NFAT5 gene with PA1-023 results in primarily cytoplasmic staining.
The PA1-023 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues C D(1439) L L V S L Q N Q G N N L T G S F(1455) of human NFAT5. This sequence is 94% conserved in the mouse protein. PA1-023 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-123) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
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.
