    Mouse monoclonal [GS-2C4] to Gelsolin
  • Specificity
    The antibody reacts with plasma and cytoplasmic gelsolin.
  • Tested applications
    Suitable for: Other, ELISA, WB, ICC/IF, IHC-Frmore details
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Sheep, Rabbit, Cow, Human, Pig
  • Immunogen

    Full length native protein (purified) corresponding to Human Gelsolin.
    Database link: P06396-1

  • Epitope
    The antibody is directed against an epitope located on the 47 kD peptide derived from a chymotryptic cleavage of gelsolin. This peptide contains the carboxy terminal actin binding site for gelsolin.
  • General notes

    Abcam is committed to meeting high standards of ethical manufacturing and has decided to discontinue this product by June 2019 as it has been generated by the ascites method. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. We would recommend antibody ab109014 as a replacement.

Target

  • Function
    Calcium-regulated, actin-modulating protein that binds to the plus (or barbed) ends of actin monomers or filaments, preventing monomer exchange (end-blocking or capping). It can promote the assembly of monomers into filaments (nucleation) as well as sever filaments already formed. Plays a role in ciliogenesis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Phagocytic cells, platelets, fibroblasts, nonmuscle cells, smooth and skeletal muscle cells.
  • Involvement in disease
    Defects in GSN are the cause of amyloidosis type 5 (AMYL5) [MIM:105120]; also known as familial amyloidosis Finnish type. AMYL5 is a hereditary generalized amyloidosis due to gelsolin amyloid deposition. It is typically characterized by cranial neuropathy and lattice corneal dystrophy. Most patients have modest involvement of internal organs, but severe systemic disease can develop in some individuals causing peripheral polyneuropathy, amyloid cardiomyopathy, and nephrotic syndrome leading to renal failure.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the villin/gelsolin family.
    Contains 6 gelsolin-like repeats.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Phosphorylation on Tyr-86, Tyr-409, Tyr-465, Tyr-603 and Tyr-651 in vitro is induced in presence of phospholipids.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton and Secreted.

  • ICC/IF image of ab11081 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% PFA 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 (ab11081, 1 µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 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). This antibody also gave a positive IF result in Hek293, HepG2 and MCF7 cells.
