The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 0.1 - 0.3 µg/ml. Detects a band of approximately 85 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 66 kDa). An approximately 85kDa band is observed in Human Placenta lysates and in lysates of the cell line HepG2. The observed molecular weight corresponds to earlier findings with different antibodies from other commercial sources.
FunctionMay play a structural role at sites of cell adhesion in maintaining cell shape and motility. In addition to these structural functions, it may also be implicated in signaling events and activation of gene transcription. May be involved in signal transduction from cell adhesion sites to the nucleus allowing successful integration of signals arising from soluble factors and cell-cell adhesion sites. Also suggested to serve as a scaffold protein upon which distinct protein complexes are assembled in the cytoplasm and in the nucleus.
Tissue specificityExpressed in a wide variety of tissues but no or very low expression in brain and peripheral leukocytes.
Involvement in diseaseNote=A chromosomal aberration involving LPP is associated with a subclass of benign mesenchymal tumors known as lipomas. Translocation t(3;12)(q27-q28;q13-q15) with HMGA2 is shown in lipomas. Note=A chromosomal aberration involving LPP is associated with pulmonary chondroid hamartomas. Translocation t(3;12)(q27-q28;q14-q15) with HMGA2 is detected in pulmonary chondroid hamartomas. Note=A chromosomal aberration involving LPP is associated with parosteal lipomas. Translocation t(3;12)(q28;q14) with HMGA2 is also shown in one parosteal lipoma. Note=A chromosomal aberration involving LPP is associated with acute monoblastic leukemia. Translocation t(3;11)(q28;q23) with MLL is associated with acute monoblastic leukemia.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the zyxin/ajuba family. Contains 3 LIM zinc-binding domains.
Cellular localizationNucleus. Cytoplasm. Cell junction. Cell membrane. Found in the nucleus, in the cytoplasm and at cell adhesion sites. Shuttles between the cytoplasm and the nucleus. It has been found in sites of cell adhesion such as cell-to-cell contact and focal adhesion which are membrane attachment sites of cells to the extracellular matrix. Mainly nuclear when fused with HMGA2/HMGIC and MLL.
