Biological Information
ImmunogenA 22 amino acid peptide of drosophila BMAL1 (Darlington et al. 1998; Rutila et al. 1998; Bae et al. 1998). Gene accession # 3219728.
ConcentrationPlease refer to the Certificate of Analysis for the lot-specific concentration.
SpecificityRecognizes drosophila BMAL1. The immunogen shows no significant sequence homology with mammalian Clock or Per proteins. Significant homology is seen with mammalian USF's (Upstream Stimulatory Factors 1 and 2) and human and mouse BMAL1 and ARNTs.

SPECIES REACTIVITIES: The immunogen sequence has no homology with mammalian Clock or Per proteins. Reactivity with other species has not been confirmed.

Entrez Gene Number
Entrez Gene SummaryThe protein encoded by this gene is a basic helix-loop-helix protein that forms a heterodimer with CLOCK. This complex binds an E-box upstream of the PER1 gene, activating this gene and possibly other circadian rhythym-associated genes. Three transcript variants encoding two different isoforms have been found for this gene.

UniProt Number
UniProt SummaryFUNCTION: SwissProt: O00327 # BMAL1-CLOCK heterodimers activate E-box element (3'- CACGTG-5') transcription of a number of proteins of the circadian clock. This transcription is inhibited in a feedback loop by PER, and also by CRY proteins (By similarity).
SIZE: 626 amino acids; 68762 Da
SUBUNIT: Component of the circadian clock oscillator which includes the CRY proteins, CLOCK or NPAS2, BMAL1 or BMAL2, CSNK1D and/or CSNK1E, TIMELESS and the PER proteins. Efficient DNA binding requires dimerization with another bHLH protein. Heterodimerization with CLOCK is required for E-box-dependent transactivation, for CLOCK nuclear translocation and degradation, and, for phosphorylation of both CLOCK and BMAL1. Interaction with PER and CRY proteins requires translocation to the nucleus. Interaction of the CLOCK-BMAL1 heterodimer with PER or CRY inhibits transcription activation. Interacts with HSP90; with AHR in vitro, but not in vivo.
SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Nucleus (By similarity).
TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Highly expressed in the adult brain, skeletal muscle and heart.
PTM: Phosphorylated upon dimerization with CLOCK (By similarity). & Sumoylated on Lys-259 upon dimerization with CLOCK (By similarity).
SIMILARITY: SwissProt: O00327 ## Contains 1 basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) domain. & Contains 1 PAC (PAS-associated C-terminal) domain. & Contains 2 PAS (PER-ARNT-SIM) domains.
MISCELLANEOUS: CLOCK-BMAL1 double mutations within the PAS domains result in syngernistic desensitization to high levels of CRY on repression of CLOCK-BMAL1 transcriptional activity of PER1 and, disrupt circadian rhythmicity.
