DNA binding protein A (dbpA) belongs to the Y-box binding protein family, characterized by an 80 amino-acid cold shock domain that imparts DNA-binding activity. It is also known as cold shock domain protein A (CSDA), CSDA1, ZO-1-associated nucleic acid-binding protein (ZONAB), and single-strand DNA-binding protein NF-GMB. DbpA has been reported to bind to the promoter for granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and act as a repressor of transcription. It also binds to full-length mRNA and small RNAs containing the consensus site UCCAUCA, suggesting a role as a repressor of translation. Mutations in the CSDA gene have been associated with hepatocarcinogenesis.
This product is an affinity-purified IgG antibody that recognizes human dbpA. The antibody was raised in rabbit using a synthetic peptide, and can be used for Western blot (WB) detection or immunohistochemical (IHC) detection of human dbpA.
