|Description||A20 was originally identified as a zinc finger protein, containing multiple Cys2/Cys2 finger motifs, induced by tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNFalpha). Further research has shown that A20 can negatively regulate NF-kappaB gene expression. NF-kappaB is an ubiquitously expressed transcription factor that regulates many genes involved in activation of inflammatory and cytokine responses. TNFalpha induces the activation of NF-kappaB by first recruiting a number of proteins to the TNF receptor. RIP and TRADD are two effector proteins which bind to the intracellular portion of the TNF receptor and form a multiprotein complex. Additional proteins, such as TRAF2 can interact with members of this complex. Although the exact mechanism of A20 regulation is unknown, it is believed that A20 interferes with either a TNF-induced RIP or TRAF2 mediated signaling pathway to block NF-kappaB expression. A20 mRNA is highly expressed in lymphoid tissues. A20 migrates in SDS/PAGE at ~80 kDa, which is equivalent to the predicted molecular weight. The antibody recognizes human A20. A fusion protein corresponding to the full length of human A20 was used as the immunogen.|

|Western blot analysis of A20. Lysate from 293 cells transfected with A20 was probed with anti-A20 (clone E5-1619) at concentrations of 0.25 (lane 1), 0.125 (lane 2), and 0.063 µg/ml (lane 3). A20 is identified as a band of ~80 kDa.|
