  • FunctionMARCKS is the most prominent cellular substrate for protein kinase C. This protein binds calmodulin, actin, and synapsin. MARCKS is a filamentous (F) actin cross-linking protein.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the MARCKS family.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylation by PKC displaces MARCKS from the membrane. It also inhibits the F-actin cross-linking activity.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Membrane.

  • ab51100 at 1/100 dilution staining MARCKS in paraffin embedded human brain sections by Immunohistochemistry, in the absence and presence of the immunizing (blocking) peptide.
  • Anti-MARCKS antibody (ab51100) at 1/2000 dilution + 293 cells, lysed in RIPA buffer containing minicomplete protease inhibitors at 30 µg

    HRP conjugated goat anti-rabbit
    Developed using the ECL technique

    Performed under reducing conditions.

    Observed band size : 63 kDa (why is the actual band size different from the predicted?)
    Additional bands at : 19 kDa. We are unsure as to the identity of these extra bands.

    Exposure time : 30 seconds
