This Blimp-1 (3H2-E8) antibody is useful for ELISA, Immunocytochemistry/Immunofluorescence, Western Blot, Immunohistochemistry on paraffin-embedded sections and Flow Cytometry. Immunohistochemistry-Frozen was reported in scientific literature. By WB, this antibody recognizes a band at ~98 kDa and may recognize one at ~80 kDa (the beta form). Antigen retrieval is recommended (EDTA buffer, microwave) prior to IHC on paraffin tissues. This antibody demonstrates nuclear staining. This antibody does not immunoprecipitate. For IHC and ICC/IF a dilution of 1:200 is recommended with tyramide amplification.

Blimp-1 (B lymphocyte-induced maturation protein) is a nuclear zinc-finger containing transcriptional repressor which primarily controls the terminal differentiation of mature B cells to plasma cells, and also involves in macrophage as well as T-cells population homeostasis/differentiation. It is also called positive regulatory domain I-binding factor-1 (PRDI-BF1) or PR (PRDI-BF1-RIZ) domain zinc finger protein 1 (PRDM1) and its first human homolog, PRDI-BF1, was identified by its ability to bind to the PRDI element on the IFN-beta promoter leading to inhibition of virus-mediated IFN-beta production. Blimp-1 contains N-terminal PR/SET domain and five C2H2 zinc fingers located near its C-terminus that mediate DNA binding, nuclear import and recruitment of histone modifying enzymes, and these activities enable Blimp-1 for its ability to control cell-fate decisions in the embryo and govern tissue homeostasis in multiple cell types in the adult organism. Blimp-1 recruits chromatin-modifying enzymes including HDACs and methyltransferases, and some of its target genes include c-Myc, CIITA, Pax5, Spi-B, and Id3. Blimp-1 sumoylation at Lys-816 by PIAS1 augments transcriptional repressor activity, and is critical for plasma cell differentiation. Deletion mutation of Blimp-1 is frequently observed in several tumors including lymphoid malignancies and has been proposed to be a candidate of tumor suppressor gene.
