Species cross-reactivity is determined by western blot.
Applications Key: W=Western Blotting
Specificity / Sensitivity
BACH1/BRIP1 Antibody detects endogenous levels of human BACH1 protein.
Source / Purification
BACH1/BRIP1 Antibody is produced by immunizing rabbits with a synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids near the carboxy terminus of human BACH1. Antibodies are purified by Protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.
BACH1, also known as BRIP1 and FANCJ, is a DNA helicase involved in repair of DNA cross-links and double strand breaks (1-3). Interaction between phosphorylated BACH1 and BRCA1 is required for DNA damage-induced checkpoint signaling (3,4). Originally identified as a breast cancer susceptibility gene (1), the BACH1 gene is mutated in Fanconi anemia (5), a recessive disorder characterized by multiple congenital abnormalities, progressive bone marrow failure, and high cancer risk/predisposition. Research investigators have concluded that BACH1 interactions with BRCA1 and the presence of BACH1 mutations in patients with early onset breast cancer indicate that BACH1 may act as a tumor suppressor (6).
Phosphorylation of BACH1 at Thr1133 is thought to be involved in regulation of the replication checkpoint and is required for the interaction of BACH1 with TopBP1 (7).
