This monoclonal anti-ARTS antibody was used to detect ARTS (Sept4_i2) protein in whole lysates of HeLa cells. HeLa ARTS knockdown (ARTS KD) stable cell line was established by using short hairpin RNAs (shRNAs) which abrogated specifically the endogenous levels of ARTS (Sept4_i2, ~30Kd)This monoclonal Ab is the only currently commercially available antibody directed against the unique C-terminus of ARTS, that can distinguish betweenARTS ( the pro-apoptotic, tumor suppressor, specific XIAP- antagonist) and Sept4_i1 (H5,PNUTL), which is the other product of the SEPT4 gene.

Apoptosis is related to many diseases and development. Mitochondrial proteins, such as cytochrome c, Apaf1, and AIF play important role in apoptosis. A novel mitochondrial septin-like protein was identified recently and designated ARTS for apoptosis related protein in TGF beta signaling pathway. ARTS that is encoded by the human septin H5/PNUTL2/CDCrel2b gene is located to mitochondria and translocates to the nucleus when apoptosis occurs. ARTS is expressed in many tissues. It enhances cell death induced by TGF beta and, to a lesser extent, by other apoptotic agents, such as TNF alpha and Fas ligand.
