Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab24469 in the following tested applications.

The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/500 - 1/1000. Detects a band of approximately 160 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 147 kDa).
IP Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 20937822
IHC-P 1/135. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval before commencing with IHC staining protocol.


  • FunctionMay act as a GTPase-activating protein for RAB2A, RAB8A, RAB10 and RAB14. Isoform 2 promotes insulin-induced glucose transporter SLC2A4/GLUT4 translocation at the plasma membrane, thus increasing glucose uptake.
  • Tissue specificityWidely expressed. Isoform 2 is the highest overexpressed in most tissues. Isoform 1 is highly expressed in skeletal muscle and heart, but was not detectable in the liver nor in adipose tissue. Isoform 2 is strongly expressed in adrenal and thyroid gland, and also in lung, kidney, colon, brain and adipose tissue. Isoform 2 is moderately expressed in skeletal muscle. Expressed in pancreatic Langerhans islets, including beta cells (at protein level). Expression is decreased by twofold in pancreatic islets in type 2 diabetes patients compared to control subjects. Up-regulated in T cells from patients with atopic dermatitis.
  • Sequence similaritiesContains 2 PID domains.
    Contains 1 Rab-GAP TBC domain.
  • Post-translational
    Phosphorylated by AKT1; insulin-induced.
    Insulin-stimulated phosphorylation is required for SLC2A4/GLUT4 translocation.
    Physiological hyperinsulinemia increases phosphorylation in skeletal muscle. Insulin-stimulated phosphorylation is reduced by 39% in type 2 diabetic patients.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Isoform 2 shows a cytoplasmic perinuclear localization in a myoblastic cell line in resting and insulin-stimulated cells.

    ab24469 staining TBC1D4 in human stomach. Paraffin embedded human stomach tissue was incubated with ab24469 (1/135 dilution) for 30 mins at room temperature. Antigen retrieval was performed by heat induction in citrate buffer pH 6.

    ab24469 was tested in a tissue microarray (TMA) containing a wide range of normal and cancer tissues as well as a cell microarray consisting of a range of commonly used, well characterised human cell lines.
