Tag :

Expression System:

Sequence :

Specificity :Recognizes the PGCC1 protein

Cited Applications :WB, ELISA

Cross Reactivity :Human, Mouse and Rat

Host / Isotype / Clone# :Rabbit, IgG

Immunogen :PGCC1 antibody was raised against an 18 amino acid synthetic peptide from near the carboxy terminus of human PGCC1.

Purification :Affinity chromatography

Stability :Store at 4oC (add 0.1% NaN3) for several months, and at -20oC for longer periods. For optimal storage, aliquot target into smaller quantities after centrifugation and store at recommended temperature. For most favorable performance, avoid repeated handling and multiple freeze/thaw cycles.

Sample Data :Western blot analysis of PGCC1 in rat thymus tissue lysate with Anti-PGCC1 antibody at (A) 0.5 ug/mL and (B) 1 ug/mL.

Scientific Background :The transcription factor peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma (PPARg) plays essential roles in adipogenesis by regulating adipocyte-specific genes through association of various co-factors. One such co-factor, PGCC1 (also known as FAM120B), is widely expressed in adult tissues and throughout embryonic development. Overexpression of this protein in OP9 pre-adipocytes promoted their differentiation into adipocytes, and knockdown of PGCC1 expression through RNA interference blocked this process. PGCC1 is homologous to C9orf10 (also known as FAM120A) and has been mapped to chromosome Xp11.22. At least two isoforms of PGCC1 are known to exist.
