The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/2000. Predicted molecular weight: 105 kDa.
Application notesIs unsuitable for Flow Cyt or IHC-P.
FunctionMay function as a linker between cadherin adhesion receptors and the cytoskeleton to regulate cell-cell adhesion and differentiation in the nervous system. Regulates morphological plasticity of synapses and cerebellar and hippocampal lamination during development. Functions in the control of startle modulation.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the vinculin/alpha-catenin family.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cell junction > adherens junction. Cell membrane. Cell projection > axon. Recruited to the nucleus upon ZNF639 overexpression.
