Background Information

NRF2, also named as NFE2L2, belongs to the bZIP family and CNC subfamily. It is a transcription activator that binds to antioxidant response (ARE) elements in the promoter regions of target genes. NRF2 is important for the coordinated up-regulation of genes in response to oxidative stress. It may be involved in the transcriptional activation of genes of the beta-globin cluster by mediating enhancer activity of hypersensitive site 2 of the beta-globin locus control region. Nrf2 is a key player in the regulation of genes encoding for many antioxidative response enzymes.The expression of NRF2 may be induced under oxidative stress (PMID:14567983).In lung cancer, Nrf2 activation in malignant cells has been associated with tumor progression and chemotherapy resistance(PMID:20534738). Identifying patients with abnormal NRF2 expression may be important for selection for chemotherapy in NSCLC. As new investigators break into the emerging field of Nrf2 research, confusion regarding the correct migratory pattern of Nrf2 is causing doubts about the accuracy and reproducibility of published results. This letter provides solid evidence that the actually observed molecular weight of Nrf2 is about 70kDa and 95-110 kDa. (PMID: 22703241).

Iram (Verified Customer) (03-11-2022)

Gave good bands around 100 kda in colon cancer cell lysates

  • Applications: Western Blot
  • Primary Antibody Dilution: 1:2000
  • Cell Tissue Type: Colon cancer cells

Giovanni (Verified Customer) (01-11-2022)

the antiboby worked very well at dilution 1:1000 in WB using Htr8/SVneo cell line lysates. It gave a specific band at around 100 kDa with very low background.

  • Applications: Western Blot
  • Primary Antibody Dilution: 1:1000
  • Cell Tissue Type: Htr8/SVneo

Xiaoping (Verified Customer) (10-14-2021)

Gave good bands around 100 kda in renal cell lysates

  • Applications: Western Blot
  • Primary Antibody Dilution: 1:800
  • Cell Tissue Type: Kidney

Razia Sultana (Verified Customer) (08-20-2020)

The antibody gives good band at around 100KD(100 KD in HK2 cells and 90KD in kidney tissue lysate) along with some non specific bands at around 40-50KD. The trial size gave a band at 130KD which is unusual and lot of non specific bands,but the full size antibody is good. We are satisfied with the purchase
