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.
Use a concentration of 1 - 4 µg/ml. Fixation/Permeabilization: PFA/Triton X-100
1/250 - 1/500.
FunctionActs as a nucleation-promoting factor (NPF) that stimulates Arp2/3-mediated actin polymerization both at the Golgi apparatus and along tubular membranes. Involved as a regulator of Golgi positioning and morphology. Participates in vesicle transport between the reticulum endoplasmic and the Golgi complex.
Tissue specificityExpressed in brain, lung, heart, colon and kidney (at protein level).
Sequence similaritiesContains 2 WH2 domains.
DomainThe N-terminal region associates with membranes, the coiled-coil region binds to microtubules and the WH2 domains promotes actin nucleation.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment. Cytoplasmic vesicle membrane. Golgi apparatus > cis-Golgi network. Localized to a perinuclear compartment near the microtubule-organizing center (MTOC). Also detected on tubulo-vesicular structures in the cell periphery that frequently localized along microtubules.
