The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Use a concentration of 1 µg/ml. Predicted molecular weight: 127 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionMyosins are actin-based motor molecules with ATPase activity. Unconventional myosins serve in intracellular movements. Their highly divergent tails bind to membranous compartments, which are then moved relative to actin filaments. Binds to membranes containing anionic phospholipids via its tail domain. Required for normal morphology of the glomerular basement membrane, normal development of foot processes by kidney podocytes and normal kidney function. In dendritic cells, may control the movement of class II-containing cytoplasmic vesicles along the actin cytoskeleton by connecting them with the actin network via ARL14EP and ARL14.
Tissue specificityExpressed in the immune system. In the kidney, predominantly expressed in the glomerulus, including podocytes.
Involvement in diseaseFocal segmental glomerulosclerosis 6
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the TRAFAC class myosin-kinesin ATPase superfamily. Myosin family. Contains 1 IQ domain. Contains 1 myosin motor domain. Contains 1 SH3 domain. Contains 1 TH1 (class I myosin tail homology) domain.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cytoplasmic vesicle. Cytoplasmic vesicle, clathrin-coated vesicle. Cell junction. Colocalizes with F-actin (By similarity). In cultured podocytes, it localizes close to and is associated with the cytoplasmic membrane, with enrichment at the lamellipodia tips. Colocalizes with cytoplasmic vesicles, including endocytic clathrin-coated vesicles. Colocalizes with dynamin at cytoplasmic vesicles.
