Isotype IgG2a
Cross-Reactivity Mouse (Murine), Rat (Rattus)
Characteristics 1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
2. Please refer to us for technical protocols.
3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
4. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.
Purification The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography.
Alternative Name Tat-SF1 (HTATSF1 Antibody Abstract)
Background Tat protein is expressed early in the viral life cycle of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), and is involved in viral replication and progression to disease. Tat binds to RNA in the transactivation response element located at the 5’ end of the nascent viral transcript. Unlike DNA transcription activators, Tat promotes transcription by binding RNA and increasing the process of elongation by RNA polymerase II. Several proteins that facilitate Tat activation include Tat specific factor (Tat-SF1), elongation factor (P-TEFb), and TFIIH. Tat-SF1 is a phosphoprotein that binds the active form of Tat. Tat-SF1 contains two RNA recognition motifs (RRN) in the N-terminal regon, and a highly acidic carboxyl terminal motif. In nuclear extracts from HeLa cells, Tat-SF1 is associated with hSPT5, RAP30, and Pol II. Immunodepletion of Tat-SF1 and hSPT5 from nuclear extracts demonstrates that both are required for Tat activation, while overexpression of Tat-SF1 and hSPT5 stimulates transcriptional activity of Tat, in vivo. Thus, Tat-SF1 may associate with several other elongation and transcription factors to regulate Tat-specific transcription activity. This antibody is routinely tested by western blot analysis.
