Background Information

REST also named as NRSF or X2 box repressor is a 1097 amino acid protein, which contains 9 C2H2-type zinc fingers. REST as transcriptional repressor binds neuron-restrictive silencer element (NRSE) and represses neuronal gene transcription in non-neuronal cells. Repressor element 1 (RE1) silencing transcription factor (REST), is widely expressed during embryogenesis, and plays a strategic role in terminal neuronal differentiation. The molecular weight of REST is 121 kDa, but REST was detected 200kDa by western blot in our result, which is similar to the one article (PMID: 16764822).
