The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/50 - 1/200. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
FunctionSubunit of novel type of clathrin- or non-clathrin-associated protein coat involved in targeting proteins from the trans-Golgi network (TGN) to the endosomal-lysosomal system.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in AP4E1 are the cause of cerebral palsy spastic quadriplegic type 4 (CPSQ4) [MIM:613744]. A non-progressive disorder of movement and/or posture resulting from defects in the developing central nervous system. Affected individuals manifest motor and posture impairments often associated with epilepsy and disturbances of cognition, behavior, sensation, and communication.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the adaptor complexes large subunit family.
Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network. Associated with the trans-Golgi network. Found in soma and dendritic shafts of neuronal cells.
