IHC-P 1/250.
IP 1/40.
  • Application notesIs unsuitable for Flow Cyt.
  • Target

    • FunctionInterlinks intermediate filaments with microtubules and microfilaments and anchors intermediate filaments to desmosomes or hemidesmosomes. Could also bind muscle proteins such as actin to membrane complexes in muscle. May be involved not only in the filaments network, but also in the regulation of their dynamics. Structural component of muscle. Isoform 9 plays a major role in the maintenance of myofibers integrity.
    • Tissue specificityWidely expressed with highest levels in muscle, heart, placenta and spinal cord.
    • Involvement in diseaseEpidermolysis bullosa simplex with pyloric atresia
      Epidermolysis bullosa simplex, with muscular dystrophy
      Epidermolysis bullosa simplex, Ogna type
      Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 2Q
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the plakin or cytolinker family.
      Contains 1 actin-binding domain.
      Contains 2 CH (calponin-homology) domains.
      Contains 33 plectin repeats.
      Contains 4 spectrin repeats.
    • DomainThe N-terminus interacts with actin, the C-terminus with vimentin, desmin, GFAP, cytokeratins, lamin B; whereas both the N-and the C-terminus can bind integrin beta-4.
    • Post-translational
      Phosphorylated by CDK1; regulates dissociation from intermediate filaments during mitosis.
    • Cellular localizationCytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cell junction > hemidesmosome.
