TransAM® Transcription Factor ELISAs
sensitive, quantitative ELISAs for transcription factor activation
Transcription factors are DNA-binding proteins that tightly regulate gene expression. They consist of two distinct domains – one that displays high affinity for a specific DNA sequence and one that confers transcriptional activity. Transcription factors are activated by phosphorylation of specific residues or by processing bound inhibitory proteins. Understanding and quantifying transcription factors is essential for the study of cell functions in relation to differentiation, brain activity, immune response, inflammation and various disease states.
TransAM® Kits are sensitive, non-radioactive transcription factor ELISA kits that facilitate the study of transcription factor activation in mammalian tissue and cell extracts. Assays are available for over 40 different targets; choose a kit from the right column, then choose the TransAM® Method tab at the bottom of the page for complete assay details.
