|Detection of Human TAZ/WWTR1 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of A431 human epithelial carcinoma cell line and HeLa human cervical epithelial carcinoma cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human TAZ/WWTR1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7210) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for TAZ/WWTR1 at approximately 50 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.|
|TAZ/WWTR1 in BG01V Human Embryonic Stem Cells. TAZ/WWTR1 was detected in immersion fixed BG01V human embryonic stem cells using Mouse Anti-Human TAZ/WWTR1 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB7210) 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 and cytoplasm. View our protocol for Fluorescent ICC Staining of Cells on Coverslips.|
TAZ (Transcriptional co-Activatorr with PDZ-binding motif; also WWTR1) is a 50-55 kDa protein that is related to YAP65 TEF-1 interacting protein. It is a widely expressed transcriptional coactivator, and should not be confused with tafazzin/Taz, an enzyme associated with lipid metabolism. TAZ influences the nuclear transport of SMAD-2, -3 and -4, and in the nucleus, TAZ is known to interact with transcription factors such as TFF1, Pax8, NKX2-1 and TEADS, serving as a scaffold for transcriptional activation complexes. Human TAZ is 400 amino acids (aa) in length. It contains one WW domain (aa 124-157) that binds to PPXY motifs, a coiled-coil region (aa 225-259), and a PDZ binding domain (aa 394-400). There are at least four utilized phosphorylation sites. When phosphorylated on Ser89, TAZ preferentially bind to 14-3-3 proteins, promoting its retention in the cytoplasm. Over aa 267-400, human TAZ shares 88% aa identity with mouse TAZ.
