The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/100 - 1/500. ab117821 can also be used for IHC-IF. Epitope exposure is recommended. Epitope exposure with citrate buffer will enhance staining.
FunctionMay be involved in microtubule polymerization, and spindle function by stabilizing microtubules and anchoring them at centrosomes. May play a role in cell migration.
Tissue specificityUbiquitously expressed.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the MAPRE family. Contains 1 CH (calponin-homology) domain. Contains 1 EB1 C-terminal domain.
DomainComposed of two functionally independent domains. The N-terminal domain forms an hydrophobic cleft involved in microtubule binding and the C-terminal is involved in the formation of mutually exclusive complexes with APC and DCTN1.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > centrosome. Associated with the microtubule network at the growing distal tip of microtubules. Also enriched at the centrosome.
