  • Relevance
    DOCK7 functions as a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF), which activates Rac1 and Rac3 Rho small GTPases by exchanging bound GDP for free GTP. It does not have a GEF activity for CDC42. It is required for STMN1 'Ser-15' phosphorylation during axon formation and consequently for neuronal polarization.
  • Cellular localization
    Cell projection, axon. Note=Enriched in the developing axons of hippocampal neurons.

Anti-DOCK7 antibody images

  • ICC/IF image of ab118790 stained U-87 MG cells. The cells were 4% fomaldeyhde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab118790, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was ab96899, DyLight® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/250 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
