Description

The product of this gene is a component of the nuclear factor of activated T cells DNA-binding transcription complex. The protein complex consists of NFAT1, NFAT2 (NFATc1 or NFATc), NFAT3, and NFAT4. All members of this family are transcription factors with a Rel homology domain and regulate gene transcription in concert with AP-1 (Jun/Fos) to orchestrate an effective immune response. NFAT proteins are predominantly expressed in cells of the immune system but are also expressed in skeletal muscle, keratinocytes and adipocytes, regulating cell differentiation programs in these cells. In resting cells, NFAT proteins are heavily phosphorylated and localized in the cytoplasm. Increased intracellular calcium concentrations activate the calcium/calmodulin-dependent serine phosphatase calcineurin, which dephosphorylates NFAT proteins, resulting in their subsequent translocation to the nucleus.

Proteins belonging to this family of transcription factors play a central role in inducible gene transcription during immune response. The product of this gene is an inducible nuclear component. It functions as a major molecular target for the immunosuppressive drugs such as cyclosporin A. Five transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been identified for this gene. Different isoforms of this protein may regulate inducible expression of different cytokine genes.

Application

ICFC - Quality tested

Recommended Usage

Each lot of this antibody is quality control tested by immunofluorescent intracellular staining with flow cytometric analysis. For flow cytometric staining, the suggested use of this reagent is ≤0.125 µg per million cells in 100 µl volume. It is recommended that the reagent be titrated for optimal performance for each application.

Excitation Laser
Blue Laser (488 nm)
Green Laser (532 nm)/Yellow-Green Laser (561 nm)
Application Notes

7A6 antibody detects endogenous human NFATC1 in Western blot with an approximate molecular weight of 100 - 120 kD (different isoforms) (Cat. No. 649602). The optimal concentration should be determined by titration for each individual assay of interest.

 

Clone 7A6 Intracellular Staining Procedure:

  1. Prepare the fix/perm solution, consisting of 1% paraformaldehyde in 70% ethanol. Chill for at least one hour at -20°C.
  2. Suspend cells in cell staining buffer and perform surface stain if necessary.
  3. Centrifuge for 5 minutes at 1500 RPM and discard supernatant.
  4. Resuspend cells in 500 μL of fix/perm solution for up to 2 x 10^6 cells and gently vortex.
  5. Incubate cells on ice for 30-60 minutes in the dark.
  6. Add 2 mL PBS and centrifuge cells for 1500 RPM for 5 minutes.
  7. Wash cells 1X with 2 mL cell staining buffer, centrifuge at 1500 RPM for 5 minutes, discard supernatant.
  8. Adjust cell concentration to about 1 x 10^7 cells/mL, add 100 μL (~ 1 x 10^6 cells) to a FACS tube that already contains the staining antibody and mix gently.
  9. Incubate 15 minutes at room temperature.
  10. Wash 2X with cell staining buffer as in step 6.
  11. Resuspend cells in cell staining buffer and analyze.
