Related Product Information for anti-MEN1 antibody

   Background: 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 TGFbeta/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.
 Applications Tested/Suitable for anti-MEN1 antibody   

Western Blot (WB)

 Application Notes for anti-MEN1 antibody    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.

 NCBI Summary for MEN1    This gene encodes menin, a putative tumor suppressor associated with a syndrome known as multiple endocrine neoplasia type 1. In vitro studies have shown menin is localized to the nucleus, possesses two functional nuclear localization signals, and inhibits transcriptional activation by JunD, however, the function of this protein is not known. Two messages have been detected on northern blots but the larger message has not been characterized. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2008]

 UniProt Comments for MEN1    MEN1: Essential component of a MLL/SET1 histone methyltransferase (HMT) complex, a complex that specifically methylates 'Lys-4' of histone H3 (H3K4). Functions as a transcriptional regulator. Binds to the TERT promoter and represses telomerase expression. Plays a role in TGFB1-mediated inhibition of cell-proliferation, possibly regulating SMAD3 transcriptional activity. Represses JUND-mediated transcriptional activation on AP1 sites, as well as that mediated by NFKB subunit RELA. Positively regulates HOXC8 and HOXC6 gene expression. May be involved in normal hematopoiesis through the activation of HOXA9 expression. May be involved in DNA repair. Component of MLL-containing complexes (named MLL, ASCOM, MLL2/MLL3 or MLL3/MLL4 complex): at least composed ASH2L, RBBP5, DPY30, WDR5, one or several histone methyltransferases (MLL, MLL2, MLL3 and/or MLL4), and the facultative components MEN1, HCFC1, HCFC2, NCOA6, KDM6A, PAXIP1/PTIP and C16orf53/PA1. Interacts with POLR2A phosphorylated at 'Ser-5', but not with the unphosphorylated, nor 'Ser-2' phosphorylated POLR2A forms. Interacts with FANCD2 and DBF4. Interacts with JUND. Interacts with SMAD3, but not with SMAD2, nor SMAD4. Directly interacts with NFKB1, NFKB2 and RELA. Ubiquitous. 3 isoforms of the human protein are produced by alternative splicing.
