    Unsuitable for: WB
  • Species reactivity
    Reacts with: Human
    Predicted to work with: Chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, Gorilla, Orangutan
  • Immunogen

    Synthetic peptide, corresponding to a region within amino acids 300-350 of human MYO18A (NP_510880.2).

  • Positive control
    • RIPA whole cell lysate from HeLa cells.
  • General notes


    ab81689 has not performed satisfactorily when used for WB of MYO18A in crude preparations (e.g. whole cell lysate). This antibody can be used for WB of enriched (e.g. immunoprecipitated) sources of MYO18A.

    • Relevance
      Myo18A/Myosin XVIIIA is an unconventional myosin that contains a lysine and glutamine (KE) rich domain and a PDZ domain. The KE and PDZ domains appear to direct subcellular localization of the Myo18A variants. It is a dimeric actin binding protein that may play a role in the stabilization and organization of the actin cytoskeleton. Recently a cell surface form of Myo18A has been identified as the receptor for surfactant protein A, a lipid associated lung collectin that mediates innate and adaptive immune responses in the lungs.
    • Cellular localization
      Isoform 1: Endoplasmic reticulum Golgi intermediate compartment. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Note: Colocalizes with actin. Isoform 2: Cytoplasm. Note: Lacks the PDZ domain. Diffusely localized in the cytoplasm.

    • Detection of human MYO18A by Western Blot of Immunoprecipitates.
      Samples: RIPA whole cell lysate (1 mg for IP, 20% of IP loaded) from HeLa cells.
      ab81689 used for IP at 3 µg/mg lysate (lane 1).
      MYO18A was also immunoprecipitated using anti MYO18A (ab81690), which recognizes a downstream epitope (lane 2).
      Lane 3 represents the control IgG.
      For blotting immunoprecipitates, ab81689 was used at 1 µg/ml.
      Detection: by Chemiluminescence with an exposure time of 1 second.
