Western blot analysis of CRSP9 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with CRSP9 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00009443-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with CRSP9 monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 3E7 (Cat # H00009443-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
The activation of gene transcription is a multistep process that is triggered by factors that recognize transcriptional enhancer sites in DNA. These factors work with co-activators to direct transcriptional initiation by the RNA polymerase II apparatus. The protein encoded by this gene is a subunit of the CRSP (cofactor required for SP1 activation) complex, which, along with TFIID, is required for efficient activation by SP1. This protein is also a component of other multisubunit complexes e.g. thyroid hormone receptor-(TR-) associated proteins which interact with TR and facilitate TR function on DNA templates in conjunction with initiation factors and cofactors. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq
