|W IP ChIP||H M R Mk (B) (Hr)||Endogenous||93||Rabbit IgG|
Reactivity Key: H=Human M=Mouse R=Rat Mk=Monkey B=Bovine Hr=Horse
Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot. Species enclosed in parentheses are predicted to react based on 100% sequence homology.
Specificity / Sensitivity
PCAF (C14G9) Rabbit mAb detects endogenous levels of total PCAF protein. The antibody does not cross-react with the related GCN5L2 protein.
Source / Purification
Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to the amino terminus of human PCAF protein.
Western blot analysis of extracts from various cell lines using PCAF (C14G9) Rabbit mAb.
Chromatin immunoprecipitations were performed with cross-linked chromatin from 4 x 106 293 cells treated with Forskolin #3828 (30 µM) and either 20 μl of PCAF (C14G9) 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 human ALS2 exon 1 primers, SimpleChIP® Human NR4A3 Promoter Primers #4829, 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.
p300/CBP-associated factor (PCAF), also known as lysine acetyl-transferase 2B (KAT2B), is a transcriptional adaptor protein and histone acetyl-transferase (HAT) that functions as the catalytic subunit of the PCAF transcriptional co-activator complex (1). PCAF is 73% homologous to GCN5L2, another HAT protein found in similar complexes (1,2). Like GCN5L2, PCAF acetylates histone H3 on Lys14 and histone H4 on Lys8, both of which contribute to gene activation by modulating chromatin structure and recruiting additional co-activator proteins that contain acetyl-lysine binding bromo-domains (3). PCAF also acetylates non-histone proteins including transcriptional activators (p53, E2F1, MyoD), general transcription factors (TFIIEβ and TFIIF) and architectural DNA binding proteins (HMGA1 and HMG17) (4-10). Acetylation of these proteins regulates their nuclear localization, protein stability, DNA binding, and co-activator association.
