ab172730 - Rabbit monoclonal IgG, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
Application notesIs unsuitable for IHC-P or IP.
FunctionScaffold protein involved in different aspects of polarized cells differentiation regulating epithelial and neuronal morphogenesis. Most probably functions in the establishment of apico-basal cell polarity. May function in cell proliferation regulating progression from G1 to S phase and as a positive regulator of apoptosis for instance during acinar morphogenesis of the mammary epithelium. May also function in cell migration and adhesion and hence regulate cell invasion through MAPK signaling. May play a role in exocytosis and in the targeting synaptic vesicles to synapses. Functions as an activator of Rac GTPase activity.
Tissue specificityExpressed in kidney, skeletal muscles, liver, lung, breast, intestine, placenta and skin mainly in epithelial cells (at protein level).
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the LAP (LRR and PDZ) protein family. Contains 16 LRR (leucine-rich) repeats. Contains 4 PDZ (DHR) domains.
Post-translational modificationsUbiquitinated; targeted for UBE3A-dependent multiubiquitination in the presence of high-risk HPV E6 proteins and degraded.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Cell junction > adherens junction. Cytoplasm. Targeting to cell-cell junctions which is CDH1-dependent is required for the pro-apoptotic activity. Localizes to neuronal post- and pre-synaptic regions.
