Background of HIVEP2 antibody
This protein specifically binds to the D sequence 5'-GGGACTTTCC-3' which is found in the enhancer elements of numerous viral promoters such as those of SV40, CMV, or HIV1. In addition, related sequences are found in the enhancer elements of a number of cellular promoters, including those of the class I MHC, interleukin-2 receptor,somatostatin receptor II, and interferon-beta genes. It may act in T-cell activation.
