3E8_DB-HRP_HMGB1_Antibody_1_WB_062218
Western blot analysis of 15 µg cell lysates from HL-60 (High expressor) and U87-MG (Low expressor) cells. Samples were resolved by electrophoresis (4-12% Bis-Tris gel), transferred to nitrocellulose, and probed with 0.05, 0.25 and 1 µg/ml Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-HMGB1 antibody, clone 3E8. Direct-Blot™ HRP anti-β-actin antibody was used as a loading control (Cat. No. 643807, 1:8000 dilution).

Description

High mobility group protein B1 (HMGB1) belongs to a family of highly conserved proteins that contain HMG box domains. Human HMGB1 is expressed as a 215 amino acid (aa) single chain polypeptide containing three domains: two N-terminal globular, 70 aa positively charged DNA binding domains (HMG boxes A and B), and a negatively charged 30 aa C-terminal region that contains only Asp and Glu. Human HMGB1 is 100% aa identical to canine HMGB1 and 99% aa identical to mouse, rat, bovine and porcine HMGB1.

HMGB1 is a widely expressed and highly abundant protein. It was originally discovered as a nuclear protein that could bend DNA. Such bending stabilizes nucleosome formation and regulates the expression of select genes upon recruitment by DNA binding proteins. It is now known that HMGB1 also plays a significant role in extracellular signaling associated with inflammation. HMGB1 is massively released into the extracellular environment during cell necrosis.  It acts as an inflammatory mediator that promotes monocyte migration and cytokine secretion, and as a mediator of T cell-dendritic cell interaction. In addition, activated monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells also secrete HMGB1, forming a positive feedback loop that results in the release of additional cytokines and neutrophils.  The cytokine activity of HMGB1 is restricted to the HMG B box, while the A box is associated with the helix-loop-helix domain of transcription factors. Although HMGB1 does not possess a classic signal sequence, it appears to be secreted as an acetylated form via secretory endolysosome exocytosis. Once secreted, HMGB1 transduces cellular signals through its high affinity receptor, RAGE and, possibly, TLR2 and TLR4.

The antibody was purified by affinity chromatography and conjugated with HRP under optimal conditions.
Concentration
Lot-specific (please contact technical support for concentration and total µg amount, or use our Lookup tool if you have a lot number.)
Storage & Handling
Upon receipt, the antibody solution should be stored undiluted at -20°C, and protected from prolonged exposure to light.
Application

WB - Quality tested

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by Western blotting. For Western blotting, the suggested use of this reagent is 0.05 - 1.0 µg per ml (1:500 - 1:10000 dilution). It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Application Notes

Clone 3E8 has been reported to protect mice from LPS induced sepsis1. Additional reported applications (for relevant formats) include: neutralization1. The LEAF™ or Ultra-LEAF™ purified antibody is recommended for functional assays (contact our custom solutions team).
