Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat RBBP4 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of K562 human chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line, MOLT‑4 human acute lymphoblastic leukemia cell line, Neuro‑2A mouse neuroblastoma cell line, and H4‑II‑E‑C3 rat hepatoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Sheep Anti-Human RBBP4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF7416) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Sheep IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF016). A specific band was detected for RBBP4 at approximately 52 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

RBBP4 (Retinoblastoma-Binding Protein 4; also RbAp48 and CAF-1) is a 48-56 kDa member of the WD Repeat RBAP46/48/MSI1 family of proteins. It is ubiquitously expressed, and acts as a transcriptional repressor. At the start of G1 of the cell cycle, Rb (retinoblastoma protein) normally associates with an E2F transcription complex on E2F responsive genes, blocking E2F activity. At the appropriate time, Rb is phosphorylated, causing its dissociation from E2F and resulting in E2F activation. Dephosphorylated Rb apparently mediates transcriptional repression by recruiting a histone deacetylase (HDAC), followed by HDAC binding to RBBP4. RBBP4, being a histone-binding protein, now brings histones plus HDACs together, resulting in histone deacetylation and gene silencing. Human RBBP4 is 425 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains six WD repeats (aa 122-403), two N-terminal acetylation sites, and two serine phosphorylation sites at positions 110 and 146. There are at least two isoform variants. One contains a six aa substitution for aa 405-425, while another utilizes an alternative start site at Met36. Human and mouse RBBP4 are identical in aa sequence.
