Target

  • Function

    F-actin cross-linking protein which is thought to anchor actin to a variety of intracellular structures. This is a bundling protein. Probably involved in vesicular trafficking via its association with the CART complex. The CART complex is necessary for efficient transferrin receptor recycling but not for EGFR degradation.
  • Tissue specificity

    Widely expressed.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in ACTN4 are the cause of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis type 1 (FSGS1) [MIM:603278]. A renal pathology defined by the presence of segmental sclerosis in glomeruli and resulting in proteinuria, reduced glomerular filtration rate and edema. Renal insufficiency often progresses to end-stage renal disease, a highly morbid state requiring either dialysis therapy or kidney transplantation.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the alpha-actinin family.
    Contains 1 actin-binding domain.
    Contains 2 CH (calponin-homology) domains.
    Contains 2 EF-hand domains.
    Contains 4 spectrin repeats.
  • Cellular localization

    Nucleus. Cytoplasm. Localized in cytoplasmic mRNP granules containing untranslated mRNAs. Colocalizes with actin stress fibers. Nuclear translocation can be induced by the PI3 kinase inhibitor wortmannin or by cytochalasin D. Exclusively localized in the nucleus in a limited number of cell lines.

Images

  • ab198608 staining alpha Actinin 4 in MCF7 cells. The cells were fixed with 100% methanol (5 min), permeabilized with 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked with 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated overnight at +4°C with ab198608 at a 1/100 dilution (shown in green) and ab195889, Mouse monoclonal to alpha Tubulin (Alexa Fluor® 594), at a 1/250 dilution (shown in red). Nuclear DNA was labelled with DAPI (shown in blue).

    Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems, TCS SP8).

    This product also gave a positive signal under the same testing conditions in MCF7 cells fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min).
