RelevanceWWP1 is an E3 ubiquitin ligase and belongs to a family of NEDD4-like proteins. WWP1 contains 4 tandem WW domains and a HECT (homologous to the E6-associated protein carboxyl terminus) domain. WW domain-containing proteins are found in all eukaryotes and play an important role in the regulation of a wide variety of cellular functions such as protein degradation, transcription, and RNA splicing.
The HECT domain of WWP1 has been implicated in regulating the localization and stability of p53 – inhibition of WWP1 results in a decrease in p53 expression, whilst WWP1 mediated stabilization of p53 appears to be associated with an accumulation of cytoplasmic p53. WWP1 also negatively regulates the TGF beta tumor suppressor pathway by inactivating its molecular components (SMAD2, SMAD4 and TGFbetaR1). WWP1 has been implicated in both breast and prostate cancers.

ICC/IF image of ab43791 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody (ab43791, 5µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM. This antibody also gave a positive result in 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 min) Hek293 and HepG2 cells at 5µg/ml, and in 100% methanol fixed (5 min) HeLa, Hek293, HepG2 and MCF7 cells at 5µg/ml.
