cAMP-responsive element modulator|Inducible cAMP early repressor|ICER|CREM
The ATF/CREB transcription factor family binds the palindromic cAMP response element (CRE) octanucleotide TGACGTCA. The ATF/CREB family includes CREM, CREB-1, CREB-2 (also designated ATF-4), ATF-1, ATF-2 and ATF-3. This family of proteins contain highly divergent N-terminal domains, but share a C-terminal leucine zipper for dimerization and DNA binding. The transcription factor cAMP-responsive element modulator (CREM) is known to play a vital role for male fertility as it has been demonstrated that male mice lacking a functional CREM gene are infertile. In testis, CREM transcriptional activity is controlled through interaction with a tissue-specific partner, activator of CREM in the testis (ACT), which confers a powerful, phosphorylation-independent activation capacity.
Homo Sapiens (Human)
Synthetic peptide, corresponding to amino acids 80-130 of Human CREM.
Human, Mouse, Rat
Product: 1 mg/ml in Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) with 0.05% sodium azide, approx. pH 7.2.Specificity: CREM (I106) polyclonal antibody detects endogenous levels of CREM protein.
The antibody was affinity-purified from rabbit antiserum by affinity-chromatography using epitope-specific immunogen and the purity is > 95% (by SDS-PAGE).
Store at 4°C short term. Aliquot and store at -20°C long term. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.
