The gene MKL1 (megakaryoblastic leukemia (translocation) 1) is mapped to human chromosome 22q13.2. It belongs to the myocardin-related family of transcriptional coactivators. The protein is present in the cytoplasm and nucleus. It is widely expressed in human tissues.

All Prestige Antibodies®Powered by Atlas Antibodies is developed and validated by the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) project . Each antibody is tested by immunohistochemistry against hundreds of normal and disease tissues. These images can be viewed on the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) site by clicking on the Image Gallery link. We also provide Prestige Antibodies® protocols and other useful information.
Anti-MKL1 antibody produced in rabbit has been used in immunofluorescence.
Applications in which this antibody has been used successfully, and the associated peer-reviewed papers, are given below.
Immunofluorescence (1 paper)
MKL1 (megakaryoblastic leukemia (translocation) 1) is a transcriptional coactivator. G-actin interacts with MKL1 and prevents its association with transcription factor SRF (serum response factor). Release of MKL1 from G-actin results in an interaction between SRF and MKL1. This association controls the expression of cytoskeletal proteins. MKL1 is also involved in skeletal, cardiac and smooth muscle differentiation. It also enhances tumor cell invasion and metastasis.
Features and Benefits
Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.
Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
- IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
- Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.
Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide.
