This product detects a band of approximately 93kDa.
This product recognizes human mucosal-associated lymphoid tissue lymphoma translocation 1 (MALT1), a 93kD paracaspase which has been reported to demonstrate proteolytic activity. In normal lymphocytes, MALT1 plays an important role in antigen receptor-mediated lymphocyte activation. In T-cells, MALT1 is recruited by activated CARMA1, along with Bcl-10, to form a CARMA1-Bcl10-MALT1 (CBM) complex which is involved in the activation of NF-kappaB.
MALT1 was initially identified as a recurrent translocation t(11;18)(q21:q21) in mucosal-associated lymphomas, which creates a functional fusion oncoprotein consisting of MALT1 and apoptosis inhibitor API2. Studies suggest that overexpression of MALT1, or expression of the API2-MALT1 fusion protein, leads to the uncontrolled activation of NF-kappaB which is stimulus-independent.
This product is reported to recognize both MALT1 and the MALT1-API2 fusion protein.
Store at +4 °C or at -20 °C if preferred.
Storage in frost-free freezers is not recommended.
This product should be stored undiluted. Avoid repeated freezing and thawing as this may denature the antibody. Should this product contain a precipitate we recommend microcentrifugation before use.
If stored in this manner, this product is stable for 18 months after receipt.
