Detection of Human and Mouse Cited‑2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of NIH‑3T3 mouse embryonic fibroblast cell line, MCF‑7 human breast cancer cell line, and HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line. PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Human/Mouse Cited‑2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5005) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Rat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF005). A specific band was detected for Cited‑2 at approximately 35 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 8.

Cited-2 is a 270 amino acid protein that functions by binding to the CH1 region of CREB binding protein (CBP)/p300. This binding interferes with certain transcription factors like HIF1 alpha and STAT2 blocking their ability to bind and interact with CBP/p300. Cited-2 knockout mice die due to defects in heart and neural tube development. Mutations in Cited-2 have been reported in patients with congenital heart defects. It appears Cited-2 modulates apoptosis by a p53 independent pathway whereby the details still need to be elucidated.
