The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/200 - 1/500. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
1/250 - 1/500.
FunctionProtein tyrosine phosphatase which stimulates progression from G1 into S phase during mitosis. May play a role in the development and maintenance of differentiating epithelial tissues. Enhances cell proliferation, cell motility and invasive activity, and promotes cancer metastasis.
Tissue specificityExpressed in bone marrow, lymph nodes, T lymphocytes, spleen, thymus and tonsil. Overexpressed in tumor cell lines.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein-tyrosine phosphatase family. Contains 1 tyrosine-protein phosphatase domain.
Developmental stageExpressed in fetal liver.
Post-translational modificationsFarnesylated. Farnesylation is required for membrane targeting. Unfarnesylated forms are shifted into the nucleus.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Early endosome. Endoplasmic reticulum. Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle. And mitotic spindle.
