Detection of Human c-Maf by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of RPMI 8226 human multiple myeloma cell line. Gels were loaded with 40 μg of cytoplasmic (Cyto) and 20 μg of nuclear (Nuc) extracts. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human c-Maf Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8227) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for c-Maf at approximately 48 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
c-Maf in RPMI 8226 Human Cell Line. c-Maf was detected in immersion fixed RPMI 8226 human multiple myeloma cell line using Mouse Anti-Human c-Maf Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB8227) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (red, upper panel; Catalog # NL007) and counterstained with DAPI (blue, lower panel). Specific staining was localized to nuclei. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Non-adherent Cells.

c-Maf is an approximately 40 kDa transcriptional regulator that contains one bZIP domain. It can associate into homodimers and heterodimers with other basic leucine zipper transcription factors. c-Maf plays an important role in fetal erythropoiesis, lens development, mechanosensory neuron development, and the differentiation of chondrocytes and osteoblasts. In the pancreas, c-Maf promotes the transcription of glucagon in alpha cells and insulin in beta cells. In immune cells, it controls Th17 and Treg differentiation by regulating the transcription of IL-4, IL-12 p35, IL-21, IL-22, and GM-CSF. Human c-Maf shares 97% amino acid sequence identity with mouse and rat c-Maf. Alternative splicing of human c-Maf generates a long isoform with a 30 aa substitution for the C-terminal methionine.
