Target

  • Function
    Molecular calcium-binding chaperone promoting folding, oligomeric assembly and quality control in the ER via the calreticulin/calnexin cycle. This lectin interacts transiently with almost all of the monoglucosylated glycoproteins that are synthesized in the ER. Interacts with the DNA-binding domain of NR3C1 and mediates its nuclear export.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the calreticulin family.
  • Domain
    Can be divided into a N-terminal globular domain, a proline-rich P-domain forming an elongated arm-like structure and a C-terminal acidic domain. The P-domain binds one molecule of calcium with high affinity, whereas the acidic C-domain binds multiple calcium ions with low affinity.
    The interaction with glycans occurs through a binding site in the globular lectin domain.
    The zinc binding sites are localized to the N-domain.
    Associates with PDIA3 through the tip of the extended arm formed by the P-domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Endoplasmic reticulum lumen. Cytoplasm > cytosol. Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix. Cell surface. Also found in cell surface (T cells), cytosol and extracellular matrix. Associated with the lytic granules in the cytolytic T-lymphocytes.

  • ab2907 staining calreticulin in mouse liver tissue sections by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P - paraformaldehyde-fixed, paraffin-embedded sections). Tissue was fixed with formaldehyde and blocked with 15% serum for 60 minutes at 20°C; antigen retrieval was by heat mediation in Tris/EDTA pH 9. Samples were incubated with primary antibody (1/500 in TBS) for 18 hours at 20°C. An Alexa Fluor® 647-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG polyclonal (1/400) was used as the secondary antibody.

  • ab2907 used at a 1/1000 dilution staining Calreticulin in HeLa cells by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence.
    HeLa cells were transfected overnight with empty vector or plasmids encoding the indicated IFITM3 constructs. Immunofluorescence with a-HA antibodies allowed IFITM3 visualization, and a-calreticulin staining allowed visualization of the ER. TOPRO-3 was used to visualize nuclei. Scale bars indicate 10 µm. Ub? indicates mutation of Lys-24, Lys-83, Lys-88, and Lys-104 to alanine.

  • IHC image of Calreticulin staining in Human normal skeletal muscle formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica Bond™ system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab2907, 5µl/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

     

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
