Anti-Blimp1 is ideal for Immunology, Epigenetic and Nuclear Signaling research. PRDM1/Blimp1 (PR domain zinc finger protein 1, PR domain-containing protein 1, Beta-interferon gene positive regulatory domain I-binding factor, BLIMP-1, Positive regulatory domain I-binding factor 1, PRDI-binding factor 1, or PRDI-BF1, or Beta-lymphocyte-induced maturation protein 1) is one of several transcription factors which drives the maturation of B-lymphocytes into Ig secreting cells. In the nucleus, PRDM1/BLIMP1 functions as a transcriptional repressor that binds specifically to the PRDI element in the promoter of the beta-interferon gene. Transcription of the PRDM1 gene is increased upon virus induction. PRDM1/Blimp1 also interacts with PRMT5. Two alternatively spliced transcript variants that encode different isoforms have been reported.
Anti-Blimp1 antibody was prepared from whole rabbit serum produced by repeated immunizations with a synthetic peptide corresponding to a region near the C-terminus of human, mouse, and rat PRDM1/BLIMP1.
