Western blot analysis of THAP1 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with THAP1 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00055145-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with THAP1 monoclonal antibody (M01), clone 2C1-2F2 (Cat # H00055145-M01 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
The protein encoded by this gene contains a THAP domain, a conserved DNA-binding domain. This protein colocalizes with the apoptosis response protein PAWR/PAR-4 in promyelocytic leukemia (PML) nuclear bodies, and functions as a proapoptotic factor that links PAWR to PML nuclear bodies. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been observed. [provided by RefSeq
