Properties

Applications

Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab64481 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P 1/100. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.

Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires boiling tissue sections in 10mM citrate buffer, pH 6.0 for 10 minutes followed by cooling at room temperature for 20 minutes.

Target

  • Function
    May act as a scaffolding protein within caveolar membranes. Interacts directly with G-protein alpha subunits and can functionally regulate their activity (By similarity). Involved in the costimulatory signal essential for T-cell receptor (TCR)-mediated T-cell activation. Its binding to DPP4 induces T-cell proliferation and NF-kappa-B activation in a T-cell receptor/CD3-dependent manner. Recruits CTNNB1 to caveolar membranes and may regulate CTNNB1-mediated signaling through the Wnt pathway.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in muscle and lung, less so in liver, brain and kidney.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in CAV1 are the cause of congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 3 (CGL3) [MIM:612526]; also called Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy type 3 (BSCL3). Congenital generalized lipodystrophies are autosomal recessive disorders characterized by a near absence of adipose tissue, extreme insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, hepatic steatosis and early onset of diabetes.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the caveolin family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    The initiator methionine for isoform Beta is removed during or just after translation. The new N-terminal amino acid is then N-acetylated.
  • Cellular localization
    Golgi apparatus membrane. Cell membrane. Membrane > caveola. Membrane raft. Colocalized with DPP4 in membrane rafts. Potential hairpin-like structure in the membrane. Membrane protein of caveolae.
