Antigen/Purification: ExpandCollapse

The antigen is a phosphopeptide corresponding to amino acid residues surrounding the phospho-Ser 679/683 of the human FAM129B sequence.

The antibody is prepared from pooled rabbit serum by affinity purification via sequential chromatography on phospho- and dephospho-peptide affinity columns.

Biological Significance: ExpandCollapse

FAM129B, also known as Niban-like protein 1, belongs to a poorly characterized protein family with unknown category and function. Increased expression of the Niban gene has been observed in renal carcinomas (Adachi et al., 2004; Sun et al., 2007). Suppression of FAM129B expression in HeLa cells has been seen to promote apoptosis, suggesting that it can modulate cell death signaling, and may be involved in the ER stress response (Sun et al., 2007). FAM129B is also up-regulated in various types of thyroid tumors and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (Matsumoto et al., 2006). It has been suggested that the MAP kinase dependent phosphorylation of FAM129B is important in controlling melanoma cells, as inhibition of B/Raf/MKK/ERK in melanoma cells represses invasion (Old et al., 2009). It is believed that phosphorylated FAM129B not only derepresses invasion, but also regulates events that promote invasion (Old et al., 2009).

100 µl in 10 mM HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg per ml BSA and 50% glycerol. Adequate amount of material to conduct 10-mini Western Blots.

Storage at -20°C is recommended, as aliquots may be taken without freeze/thawing due to presence of 50% glycerol. Stable for at least 1 year at -20°C.
