PA1-848 detects p300 from human cells.
PA1-848 has been successfully used in Western blot and ChIP procedures. By Western blot, this antibody detects an ~265 kDa protein representing p300 from HeLa cell lysate.
The PA1-848 immunogen is a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues G(139) T S G P N Q G P T Q S T(151) C in the nuclear factor binding domain of human p300. The PA1-848 immunizing peptide (Cat. # PEP-053) is available for use in neutralization and control experiments.
Cyclic AMP-responsive enhancer binding protein (CREB) binding protein (CBP) and p300 are closely related transcriptional coactivators and have been shown to directly interact with many different DNA-binding transcription factors including nuclear hormone receptors, CREB, c-Fos, c-Jun/v-Jun, c-Myb/v-Myb, TFIIB and MyoD. Both CBP and p300 have been shown to display histone acetyltransferase (HAT) activity, capable of acetylating all four core histone particles in nucleosomes. As a result of HAT activity, it has been suggested CBP and p300 may play a direct role in activating chromatin for transcription.
Single point mutations in CBP have been proposed as causative factors in the developmental abnormalities of Rubinstein-Taybi syndrome (RTS). Although both CBP and p300 appear to function similarly, the inability of p300 to rescue CBP malfunction in RTS suggests intrinsic functional differences between CBP and p300.
