|Detection of Human STAT1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line, Daudi human Burkitt's lymphoma cell line, and A431 human epithelial carcinoma cell line. PVDF Membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Mouse STAT1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB14091) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for STAT1 at approximately 90 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.|
|STAT1 Specificity is Shown by Immunocytochemistry in Knockout Cell Line. STAT1 was detected in immersion fixed HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line treated with IFN-alpha 1 but is not detected in STAT1 knockout (KO) HeLa cell line using Mouse Anti-Human STAT1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB14901) at 1 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 493-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (green; Catalog # NL009) and counterstained with DAPI (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm and nuclei. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.|
STAT1 is a member of the STAT family of cytoplasmic transcription factors that mediate cytokine, growth factor and hormone receptor signal transduction. STAT1 is associated with type I and II interferon signaling. Phosphorylation of STAT1a at Y701 leads to dimerization and translocation to the nucleus to activate gene transcription. Human STAT1 shows 93% and 94% aa identity with mouse and rat STAT1, respectively, over the region used as an immunogen. This region is identical between isoforms STAT1a (91 kDa) and STAT1b (84 kDa).
