WB 1/500 - 1/3000. Predicted molecular weight: 50 kDa.


  • Function

    Subunit of novel type of clathrin- or non-clathrin-associated protein coat involved in targeting proteins from the trans-Golgi network (TGN) to the endosomal-lysosomal system.
  • Tissue specificity

    Ubiquitous. Highly expressed in testis and lowly expressed in brain and lung.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in AP4M1 are the cause of cerebral palsy spastic quadriplegic type 3 (CPSQ3) [MIM:612936]. A non-progressive disorder of movement and/or posture resulting from defects in the developing central nervous system. Affected individuals present postnatally with early infantile hypotonia, delayed psychomotor development, strabismus, lack of independent walking and severe mental retardation. They develop progressive spasticity of all limbs with generalized hypertonia, hyperreflexia, and extensor plantar responses by the end of the first year of life. Speech is absent or limited. Pseudobulbar signs, such as drooling, stereotypic laughter, and exaggerated jaw jerk, are part of the clinical picture.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the adaptor complexes medium subunit family.
    Contains 1 MHD (mu homology) domain.
  • Domain

    Interacts specifically with tyrosine-based sorting signals.
  • Cellular localization

    Golgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network. Membrane > coated pit. Associated with the trans-Golgi network. Found in soma and dendritic shafts of neuronal cells.

Thanks for your patience.

Sorry for the confusion regarding the label of ab96306. I have confirmed that this antibody is not specific for phosphorylated AP4M1. It will detect total AP4M1.

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. Please note that the information for this product has been updated on our online product datasheet.

I hope this is helpful. Please contact me again if you have any further questions.
