Target of this antibody:
Alternative names of antibody target:
BrdT, Cancer/testis antigen 9, CT9, RING3-like protein
BrdT is similar to the RING3 protein family. It possesses 2 bromodomain motifs and a PEST sequence. The bromodomain is found in proteins that regulate transcription. BrdT drives a meiotic and post-meiotic gene expression program. It also controls the genome-wide post-meiotic genome reorganization that occurs after histone hyperacetylation in elongating spermatids. It may play a role in the transcriptional regulation of spermatogenesis. It also seems to have a structural ATP-independent role in the reorganization of acetylated chromatin.
