The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 53 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionNecessary for the survival of cerebellar neurons (By similarity). Induces neuritogenesis by activating the Ras-MAP kinase pathway (By similarity). May play a role in the maintenance of a critical intracellular glycosylation level and homeostasis.
Tissue specificityExpressed in the central nervous system.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in ATXN10 are the cause of spinocerebellar ataxia type 10 (SCA10) [MIM:603516]. Spinocerebellar ataxia is a clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of cerebellar disorders. Patients show progressive incoordination of gait and often poor coordination of hands, speech and eye movements, due to degeneration of the cerebellum with variable involvement of the brainstem and spinal cord. SCA10 is an autosomal dominant cerebellar ataxia (ADCA).
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ataxin-10 family.
