Nascent polypeptide-associated complex subunit alpha, muscle-specific form
Alpha-NAC, muscle-specific form
Store at -20°C, for extended storage, conserve at -20°C or -80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
Cardiac- and muscle-specific transcription factor. May act to regulate the expression of genes involved in the development of myotubes. Plays a critical role in ventricular cardiomyocyte expansion and regulates postnatal skeletal muscle growth and regeneration. Involved in the organized assembly of thick and thin filaments of myofibril sarcomeres.
Specifically expressed in heart and skeletal muscle: it is present in differentiated myotubes but not in myoblasts.
