|Application ||WB, IF, E|
|Calculated MW||36949 Da|
|Other Names||Polycomb complex protein BMI-1, Polycomb group RING finger protein 4, RING finger protein 51, BMI1, PCGF4, RNF51|
|Target/Specificity||This BMI1 monoclonal antibody is generated from mouse immunized with BMI1 recombinant protein.|
|Format||Purified monoclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein G column, eluted with high and low pH buffers and neutralized immediately, followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||BMI1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of a Polycomb group (PcG) multiprotein PRC1- like complex, a complex class required to maintain the transcriptionally repressive state of many genes, including Hox genes, throughout development. PcG PRC1 complex acts via chromatin remodeling and modification of histones; it mediates monoubiquitination of histone H2A 'Lys-119', rendering chromatin heritably changed in its expressibility (PubMed:15386022, PubMed:16359901, PubMed:26151332, PubMed:16714294, PubMed:21772249, PubMed:25355358, PubMed:27827373). The complex composed of RNF2, UB2D3 and BMI1 binds nucleosomes, and has activity only with nucleosomal histone H2A (PubMed:21772249, PubMed:25355358). In the PRC1-like complex, regulates the E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase activity of RNF2/RING2 (PubMed:15386022, PubMed:26151332, PubMed:21772249).|
