PA1-4277 detects alpha- and beta-PUMA from human samples.
PA1-4277 has been successfully used in Western blot procedures. By Western blot this antibody recognizes both forms of the PUMA protein found at ~20 kDa and ~36 kDa in transfected U20S cells.
PA1-4277 immunizing peptide corresponds to amino acid residues E(101) Q H L E S P V P S A P G A L A G(117) of the human PUMA-a form of the PUMA protein.
A novel gene PUMA (p53 upregulated modulator of apoptosis) is a target for activation by the p53 tumor-suppressor gene. p53 functions as a transcriptional activator, and influences p53-inducible genes that play a role in the induction of apoptosis in response to p53. Antisense inhibition of PUMA expression reduced the apoptotic response to p53, and PUMA is likely to play a role in mediating p53-induced cell death through the cytochrome c/Apaf-1-dependent pathway.
