Western blot analysis of extracts from 293T cells, transfected with 100 nM SignalSilence® Control siRNA (Unconjugated) #6568 (-), SignalSilence® TRIM33 siRNA I #13487 (+), or SignalSilence® siRNA II #13503 (+), using TRIM33 (E1N2Z) Rabbit mAb (upper) or GAPDH (D16H11) XP® Rabbit mAb #5174 (lower). The TRIM33 (E1N2Z) Rabbit mAb confirms silencing of TRIM33, while the GAPDH (D16H11) XP® Rabbit mAb is used as a loading control.Learn more about how we get our images

Reprobing of an existing membrane is a convenient means to immunoblot for multiple proteins independently when only a limited amount of sample is available. It should be noted that for the best possible results a fresh blot is always recommended. Reprobing can be a valuable method but with each reprobing of a blot there is potential for increased background signal. Additionally, it is recommended that you verify the removal of the first antibody complex prior to reprobing so that signal attributed to binding of the new antibody is not leftover signal from the first immunoblotting experiment. This can be done by re-exposing the blot to ECL reagents and making sure there is no signal prior to adding the next primary antibody.
NOTE: Prepare solutions with reverse osmosis deionized (RODI) or equivalently purified water.

Protocol Id: 10
Supplied in 10 mM sodium HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg/ml BSA, 50% glycerol and less than 0.02% sodium azide. Store at –20°C. Do not aliquot the antibody.
TRIM33 (E1N2Z) Rabbit mAb recognizes endogenous levels of total TRIM33 protein. Based upon sequence alignment, this antibody is predicted to react with TRIM33 isoforms A and B, but not with other TIF family members.

Monoclonal antibody is produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues near the carboxy terminus of human TRIM33 protein.
The transcriptional intermediary factor 1 (TIF1) family represents a group of proteins with multiple histone-binding domains. In humans, this family comprises four proteins, TIF1α/TRIM24, TIF1β/TRIM28/KAP1, TIF1γ/TRIM33/Ectodermin, and TIF1δ/TRIM66, which are characterized by an amino-terminal tripartite motif (TRIM) domain consisting of a RING domain, two B boxes, a coiled-coil domain, and a carboxy-terminal PHD finger and bromodomain (1). Despite their similar overall structure, these proteins have diverse roles in transcriptional regulation. TIF1α functions as a ligand-dependent nuclear receptor coregulator and more recently has been implicated in regulating p53 stability (2). TIF1β is an intrinsic component of the N-CoR1 corepressor complex and the NuRD nucleosome-remodeling complex (3) and functions as a corepressor for Kruppel-associated box (KRAB) zinc-finger transcription factors (4). Furthermore, TIF1β promotes heterochromatin-mediated gene silencing formation by serving as a cofactor for heterochromatin protein HP1 (5). TIF1δ expression is restricted to the testis and has been shown to interact with HP1γ (6).
In contrast, the ubiquitous nuclear protein TRIM33 does not interact with either HP1 family members or chromatin-remodeling/modifying complexes. Rather, TRIM33 plays a pivotal role in signaling cascades driven by the TGF-β superfamily of ligands (7-9). A research study suggests that TRIM33 and Smad4 compete for binding to receptor phosphorylated Smad2/3 and that TRIM33-Smad2/3 and Smad4-Smad2/3 complexes complement one another in the TGF-β-dependent control of hematopoietic cell fate (9). Other studies, however, demonstrate that TRIM33 functions to repress signal relay by the TGF-β superfamily (7-8,10). Indeed, knockout of murine Trim33 results in embryonic lethality due to upregulated Nodal signaling (10). Mechanistically, TRIM33 functions as an E3-ubiquitin ligase and promotes monoubiquitination of Smad4, a modification that impairs its ability to associate with phospho-Smad2 (8). This negative regulatory mechanism is further substantiated by the discovery that TRIM33 disrupts transcriptionally competent Smad complexes on the promoter/enhancer regions of TGF-β-responsive genes by associating with specific epigenetic marks on histone H3, which is a requirement for activating TRIM33's monoubiquitin ligase activity toward Smad4 (11). In line with the ability of TRIM33 to regulate the development of different blood cell lineages, it was shown that loss of TRIM33 expression due to epigenetic silencing of its promoter contributes to the pathogenesis of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (12).
