The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions. - If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer. - Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent. - Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised. - Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

Adapter protein CMS
Cas ligand with multiple SH3 domains
CD2 associated protein
Mesenchyme to epithelium transition protein with SH3 domains 1
FunctionSeems to act as an adapter protein between membrane proteins and the actin cytoskeleton. May play a role in receptor clustering and cytoskeletal polarity in the junction between T-cell and antigen-presenting cell. May anchor the podocyte slit diaphragm to the actin cytoskeleton in renal glomerolus. Also required for cytokinesis.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed in fetal and adult tissues.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in CD2AP are the cause of susceptibility to focal segmental glomerulosclerosis type 3 (FSGS3) [MIM:607832]. A renal pathology defined by the presence of segmental sclerosis in glomeruli and resulting in proteinuria, reduced glomerular filtration rate and edema. Renal insufficiency often progresses to end-stage renal disease, a highly morbid state requiring either dialysis therapy or kidney transplantation.
Sequence similaritiesContains 3 SH3 domains.
DomainThe Pro-rich domain may mediate binding to SH3 domains. Potential homodimerization is mediated by the coiled coil domain.
Post-translational modificationsPhosphorylated on tyrosine residues; probably by c-Abl, Fyn and c-Src.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cell projection > ruffle. Colocalizes with F-actin and BCAR1/p130Cas in membrane ruffles. Located at podocyte slit diaphragm between podocyte foot processes (By similarity). During late anaphase and telophase, concentrates in the vicinity of the midzone microtubules and in the midbody in late telophase.
