Anti-ALMS1 antibody (ab4306)


  • Product nameAnti-ALMS1 antibody
    See all ALMS1 primary antibodies
  • Description
    Goat polyclonal to ALMS1
  • SpecificityThe C terminus of ALMS 1 shares an 8 amino acid stretch with two other human proteins: hypothetical protein (XP_169104) and ERAL1 (NP_005693). However, this stretch is located internally in these two proteins and so will most likely not cross-react with this antibody. The N terminus was not chosen as the peptide is expected to cyclise during synthesis. ALMS1 protein has got a molecular weight of approximately 460kD. ab4306 results in a WB band of the right size, confirming that this antibody recognises the right protein.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/200. Detects a band of approximately 460 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 460 kDa).Can be blocked with Human ALMS1 peptide (ab23023).

  • FunctionPossible role in intracellular trafficking.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in all tissues tested including adipose and pancreas. Expressed by beta-cells of the islets in the pancreas (at protein level).
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in ALMS1 are the cause of Alstrom syndrome (ALMS) [MIM:203800]. Alstrom syndrome is a rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by progressive cone-rod retinal dystrophy, neurosensory hearing loss, early childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Dilated cardiomyopathy, acanthosis nigricans, male hypogonadism, hypothyroidism, developmental delay and hepatic dysfunction can also be associated with the syndrome.
  • Developmental stageWidely expressed in fetal tissues. Detected in fetal pancreas, skeletal muscle, liver, kidney and brain (at protein level). Expressed in fetal aorta and brain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > cilium basal body. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle pole. Associated with centrosomes and basal body at the base of primary cilia. During mitosis localizes to both spindle poles.
