Menin (multiple endocrine neoplasia I, MEN1, MEAI, SCG2) is a nuclear tumor suppressor that is mutated in patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia type I (MEN1). Menin can activate the transcription of differentiation-regulating genes by covalent histone modification. In osteoblasts, the interaction of menin and the TGFβ/Smad3 pathway negatively regulates BMP2/Smad1/5- and Runx2-dependent transcription activities leading to inhibition of late-stage differentiation. Menin regulates the expression of IGFBP-2 by influencing the IGFBP-2 promoter. Ectopic overexpression of menin via adenoviruses induces apoptosis in murine embryonic fibroblasts in a Bax/Bak-dependent manner. Two mRNA exist and two variants of the shorter mRNA have alternative splicing that changes the CDS. Five variants where alternative splicing takes place in the 5' UTR have been identified.
Clonality of antibody:
This antibody reacts with:
Human, mouse, rat
Synthetic peptide of human Menin
Concentration of antibody:
Form of antibody:
Formulation of this antibody:
100 µl affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA and 0.01% thimerosal.
This antibody has been succesfully tested for use in following methods:
Western blotting (1:500 – 1:2000). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. 293T cell lysate can be used as a positive control. The antibody recognizes the Menin of human, mouse, and rat origins. Reactivity to other species has not been tested.
Shelf time: 12 months in temp.: -20 deg.C
How to handle this antibody:
The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.
This antibody needs to be stored at + 4°C in a fridge short term in a concentrated dilution. Freeze thaw will destroy a percentage in every cycle and should be avoided.
If you buy Antibodies supplied by Biovision they should be stored frozen at - 24°C for long term storage and for short term at + 5°C.
