This product detects a band of approximately 60kDa in Jurkat whole cell lysates.
This product recognizes TTAGGG repeat binding factor 1 (TRF1) a ubiquitously expressed 60kDa protein. Along with tankyrase-1, TIN2, and PINX1, TRF1 binds the double-stranded TTAGGG repeat of telomeres and regulates telomere length. Protection of telomeres-1 (POT1) is a single-stranded telomeric DNA-binding protein which controls the elongation of telomeres by telomerase. TRF1 mediates the loading of POT1 onto single stranded DNA, conveying information about telomere length to the telomere terminus, where telomerase is regulated. If the telomere is long enough, telomerase is inhibited. Additionally in conjunction with POT1 and TTAGGG repeat binding factor 1 (TRF2), TRF1 recruits factors to the telomere, inducing the formation of the protective t-loop. TRF1 along with TRF2, POT1, TIN2, TPP1, and Rap1 form the shelterin complex which distinguishes telomeres from sites of DNA damage.
TRF1 is thought to play a role in leukaemia being expressed at significantly higher levels in patients with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia than those with myeloid leukaemia.
This product has been reported to work in Western blotting applications.
