Immunogen Synthetic peptide corresponding to amino acids 1104-1123 of the carboxy terminal end of Human TERT
Sequence S-R-K-L-P-G-T-T-L-T-A-L-E-A-A-A-N-P-A-L Remarks: Accession Number: AF018167
Specificity This antiserum primarily detects Human TERT, but several non-specific bands appear on immunoblots (Figure 1). In Immunofluorescence Microscopy assays, staining with anti-TERT-16 was specific to the nuclei of cells with ectopic TERT expression.
Cross-Reactivity (Details) Species reactivity (tested):Human.
Purification Affinity Chromatography
Alternative Name TERT (TERT Antibody Abstract)
Background Telomerase is a reverse transcriptase that adds telomeric repeats (TTAGGG)n to chromosomal ends, compensating for the telomere shortening that occurs with DNA replication. In normal human somatic cells, telomerase is repressed and telomeres progressively shorten, leading to limited lifespan and senescence. Reactivation of telomerase activity is associated with human cancer and cell immortalization. Approximately 85 % of human cancers, including breast, prostate, stomach, bladder, colon, and liver cancer, have telomerase activity, whereas most normal somatic cells do not. The specificity of telomerase to human cancer has led to investigations of telomerase activity and expression as a tumor marker. For example, the presence of telomerase activity in human urine has been identified as a marker for human bladder carcinoma. Human telomerase consists of three major subunits: a catalytic protein subunit called hTERT (for human TElomerase Reverse Transcriptase), a template RNA called hTR, and telomerase-associated protein (TEP-1). TERT and hTR are minimally required to reconstitute telomerase activity in vitro. In human cells, hTR is constitutively expressed. TERT transcription is a primary mechanism for regulation of telomerase activity.Synonyms: EST2, HEST2, TCS1, TRT, Telomerase catalytic subunit, Telomerase reverse transcriptase, Telomerase-associated protein 2
