Gene Name ATF6
Protein Name Cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 alpha
Molecular Weight 74585 MW
Protein Function Transcription factor that acts during endoplasmic reticulum stress by activating unfolded protein response target genes. Binds DNA on the 5'-CCAC[GA]-3'half of the ER stress response element (ERSE) (5'-CCAAT-N(9)-CCAC[GA]-3') and of ERSE II (5'-ATTGG-N-CCACG-3'). Binding to ERSE requires binding of NF-Y to ERSE. Could also be involved in activation of transcription by the serum response factor. .
Tissue Specificity Ubiquitous.
Sequence Similarities Belongs to the bZIP family. ATF subfamily.
Subcellular Localization Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass type II membrane protein.
Uniprot ID P18850
Alternative Names Cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 alpha;cAMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 alpha;Activating transcription factor 6 alpha;ATF6-alpha;Processed cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 alpha;ATF6;
Research Areas |epigenetics and nuclear signaling|transcription|domain families|hlh / leucine zipper| epigenetics and nuclear signaling|chip'ing antibodies|
*if product is indicated to react with multiple species, protein info is based on the human gene.

Background for Cyclic AMP-dependent transcription factor ATF-6 alpha

ATF6, a member of the leucine zipper protein family, is an endoplasmic reticulum(ER) stress-regulated transmembrane transcription factor that activates the transcription of ER molecules. ATF6 gene is mapped to chromosome 1q23.3. ATF6 can constitutively induce the promoter of glucose-regulated protein(grp) genes through activation of the endoplasmic reticulum(ER) stress element(ERSE).

FAQs

Q: Do you offer BSA-free antibodies? Keyword: Bovine serum albumin, carrier protein, conjugation
A: Yes, please contact us at support@bosterbio.com for more information about BSA-free antibodies and availability. The new BSA-free formula uses trehalose as a replacement to BSA. We have tested many alternative chemicals and found that trehalose protects the antibodies the best.
Q: Is your western blot protocol provided from the website applicable for all your antibodies? Keyword: applications, WB
A: The protocol is applicable for all our antibodies in WB, the NC Membrane(0.45μm or 0.22μm) and transfer time(70 mins or 50 mins) depends on the protein molecular weight, details can be found in included protocol.
Q: Can I conjugate markers to this antibody? Can I link custom conjugates to this antibody? Keyword: conjugation
A: The antibody is stored with BSA and cannot be conjugated with markers. Carrier free antibodies are available upon request. Please contact support@bosterbio.com
Q: What should I use for negative control?
A: Please contact us for negative control suggestions. You can also check expression databases such as genecards, uniprot etc. Due to logistic reasons, we do not sell serum or lysates that we use internally for positive or negative control.
Q: Where can I find troubleshooting information? What should I do if I have unexpected bands, high background, no signal, weak signal
A: You can find Boster's troubleshoot guides under tech support tab. Please contact us for further assistance on troubleshooting your experiment.
Q: What is the immunogen sequence of this antibody? Is this antibody polyclonal or monoclonal?
A: You can find the immunogen sequence under "Immunogen" and clonality in the product name.
Q: What is the expected band size? Why is it different than the observed band size?
A: The expected band size is predicted on the size of the protein. The actual band size may be affected by a few other factors including but not limited to:
1. Post-translational modification:phosphorylation, methylation, glycosylation etc. These modifications prevent SDS molecules from binding to the target protein and thus make the band size appear larger than expected
2. Post-translational cleavage: this can cause smaller bands and or multiple bands

3. Alternative splicing: the same gene can have alternative splicing patterns generating different size proteins, all with reactivities to the antibody.

4. Amino Acid R chain charge: SDS binds to positive charges. The different size and charge of the Amino Acid side chains can affect the amount of SDS binding and thus affect the observed band size.
5. Multimers: Multimers are usually broken up in reducing conditions. However if the interactions between the multimers are strong, the band may appear higher.,
Q: What is the suggested dilution ratio for Western Blot (WB), Immunohistochemistry (IHC) and or ELISA standards? What is the optimal pH for the sample?
A: Check the datasheet for the product for details on dilution ratios for different experiments. You can find the datasheet button on the right side of the product page.
Q: What is the protocol you used for your Western blotting (WB) and Immunohistochemistry (IHC)?
A: Check our protocols under the tech support tab.
Q: What are some alternative names that could be used to describe this product?
A: Some common names include but are not limited to atf6 antibody, atf 6 antibody
