The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Application notesWestern Blot – Approx 150-200kDa band seen in A431 cell lysate.
Recommended for use at 3-4µg/ml.
FunctionInvolved in cytoskeletal rearrangements required for phagocytosis of apoptotic cells and cell motility. Functions as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF), which activates Rac Rho small GTPases by exchanging bound GDP for free GTP. Its GEF activity may be enhanced by ELMO1.
Tissue specificityHighly expressed in placenta, lung, kidney, pancreas and ovary. Expressed at intermediate level in thymus, testes and colon.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the DOCK family. Contains 1 DHR-1 (CZH-1) domain. Contains 1 DHR-2 (CZH-2) domain. Contains 1 SH3 domain.
DomainThe DHR-2 domain is necessary and sufficient for the GEF activity.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Membrane. Recruited to membranes via its interaction with phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-triphosphate.
