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: 26 kDa. Good results were obtained when blocked with 5% non-fat dry milk in 0.05% PBS-T.
FunctionControls cell proliferation acting as a negative regulator of TOR signaling pathway mediated by mTORC1. May act as a tumor suppressor.
Tissue specificityWidely expressed.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in TMEM127 are a cause of susceptibility to pheochromocytoma (PCC) [MIM:171300]. A catecholamine-producing tumor of chromaffin tissue of the adrenal medulla or sympathetic paraganglia. The cardinal symptom, reflecting the increased secretion of epinephrine and norepinephrine, is hypertension, which may be persistent or intermittent.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the TMEM127 family.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Cytoplasm. Association of TMEM127 with the cell membrane is enhanced by inhibition of endocytosis. In the cytoplasm, it colocalizes with markers of early endosomal structures, Golgi apparatus and lysosomes.
