Antibody Type:
Protein A Chromatography
Human, Mouse


Western Blot Validated Immunofluorescence Validated

Application Notes

Applications Validated by Active Motif:
WB*: 2 - 4 µg/ml
IF: 1:100 - 1:500 dilution

For optimal results, primary antibody incubations should be performed at room temperature. The addition of 0.1% Tween 20 to all blocking solutions may also reduce background. Individual optimization may be required.

*Note: many chromatin-bound proteins are not soluble in a low salt nuclear extract and fractionate to the pellet. Therefore, we recommend a High Salt / Sonication Protocol when preparing nuclear extracts for Western blot.

AATF/Che-1, or Apoptosis-antagonizing Transcription Factor is a key regulator of apoptosis through its interaction with MAP3K12 (DLK), as well as regulation of gene transcription and cell profileration through interaction with RNA polymerase II. AATF/Che-1 may promote cell proliferation by acting as a competitor of histone deacetylase 1 (HDAC1) interaction with the growth inhibiting protein pRb. AATF / Che-1 binding to pRb may displace HDAC1 from RB1/E2F complexes, leading to activation of E2F target genes and cell cycle progression.
