Application Abreviews Notes
ICC/IF
  • Application notes
    ICC/IF: 1/100 - 1/500. Formaldehyde fixation and permeabilization with Triton-X 100 is recommended.

    Acetone fixation is not recommended.

    Not yet tested in other applications.
    Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
  • Target

    • Function
      Possible role in intracellular trafficking.
    • Tissue specificity
      Expressed in all tissues tested including adipose and pancreas. Expressed by beta-cells of the islets in the pancreas (at protein level).
    • Involvement in disease
      Defects 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 stage
      Widely 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
      modifications
      Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    • Cellular localization
      Cytoplasm. 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.
