|W IP IF-IC ChIP||H (M) (R) (Mk)||Endogenous||120-130||Rabbit IgG|
Reactivity Key: H=Human M=Mouse R=Rat Mk=Monkey
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
Bcl-11B (D6F1) XP® Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total Bcl-11B protein.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Leu391 of human Bcl-11B protein.
Western blot analysis of extracts from MOLT-4 and Jurkat cells using Bcl-11B (D6F1) XP® Rabbit mAb.
Immunoprecipitation of Bcl-11B from MOLT-4 cell extracts, using Rabbit (DA1E) mAb IgG XP® Isotype Control #3900 (lane 2) or Bcl-11B (D6F1) XP® Rabbit mAb (lane 3). Lane 1 is 10% input. Western blot analysis was performed using Bcl-11B (D6F1) XP® Rabbit mAb.
Confocal immunofluorescent analysis of Jurkat (positive; left) and HeLa (negative; right) cells using Bcl-11B (D6F1) XP® Rabbit mAb (green). Actin filaments were labeled with DY-554 phalloidin (red). Blue pseudocolor = DRAQ5® #4084 (fluorescent DNA dye).
Chromatin immunoprecipitations were performed with cross-linked chromatin from 4 x 106 Jurkat cells and either 10 μl of Bcl-11B (D6F1) XP® Rabbit mAb or 2 μl of Normal Rabbit IgG #2729 using SimpleChIP® Enzymatic Chromatin IP Kit (Magnetic Beads) #9003. The enriched DNA was quantified by real-time PCR using SimpleChIP® Human CDKN1B Promoter Primers #11951, human MDM2 promoter primers, and SimpleChIP® Human α Satellite Repeat Primers #4486. The amount of immunoprecipitated DNA in each sample is represented as signal relative to the total amount of input chromatin, which is equivalent to one.
Bcl-11B (Ctip2) is a COUP-TF interacting protein that belongs to the C2H2 type zinc finger protein family (1). Bcl-11B is highly expressed in the brain and is critical for the development of neurons, as well as other tissues and organs. Bcl-11B also plays an essential role in T cell lineage commitment and maintenance of T cell identity (1-3). Two isoforms of Bcl-11B are found to be encoded by the BCL11B gene, possibly through exon-skipping (4). Bcl-11B is a transcription factor which binds to target genes through the 2nd and 3rd zinc-finger domains of exon 4 (3), while also interacting with various protein partners including COUP-TF proteins (1), the NuRD complex (5,6), HDAC1, HDAC2, and SUV39H1 (7). Research studies have shown that mutations and deletion of Bcl-11B contribute to the development of thymic lymphoma in mice and T cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia in humans, indicating a role as a tumor suppressor (4,8). Mechanistic studies have shown that Bcl-11B represses gene expression of the E3 ubiquitin ligase HDM2 in a p53-dependent manner (9).
