Affinity Capture-Western

An interaction is inferred when a bait protein is affinity captured from cell extracts by either polyclonal antibody or epitope tag and the associated interaction partner identified by Western blot with a specific polyclonal antibody or second epitope tag. This category is also used if an interacting protein is visualized directly by dye stain or radioactivity. Note that this differs from any co-purification experiment involving affinity capture in that the co-purification experiment involves at least one extra purification step to get rid of potential contaminating proteins.


CIITA mediates interferon-gamma repression of collagen transcription through phosphorylation-dependent interactions with co-repressor molecules.

Xu Y, Harton JA, Smith BD

Previously, we have demonstrated that major histocompatibility class II trans-activator (CIITA) is crucial in mediating interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma)-induced repression of collagen type I gene transcription. Here we report that CIITA represses collagen transcription through a phosphorylation-dependent interaction between its proline/serine/threonine domain and co-repressor molecules such as histone deacetylase (HDAC2) and Sin3B. Mutation of a serine (S373A) in CIITA, within a glycogen ... [more]
