The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 - 4 µg/ml. Fixation/Permeabilization: PFA/Triton X-100
1/500 - 1/1000. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
FunctionMay play a role in membrane trafficking.
DomainThe WXXF motifs mediate binding of accessory proteins to the ear-domain of AP-1, GGAs and AP-2 through hydrophobic interactions. Selective binding to the GAE domains of AP-1 or to the alpha-ear domain of AP-2 is tuned by the acidic context surrounding the motif and the properties of the second residue of the motif itself.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Colocalizes with AP1G1 and clathrin.
