Target

  • Function
    Molecular calcium-binding chaperone promoting folding, oligomeric assembly and quality control in the ER via the calreticulin/calnexin cycle. This lectin interacts transiently with almost all of the monoglucosylated glycoproteins that are synthesized in the ER. Interacts with the DNA-binding domain of NR3C1 and mediates its nuclear export.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the calreticulin family.
  • Domain
    Can be divided into a N-terminal globular domain, a proline-rich P-domain forming an elongated arm-like structure and a C-terminal acidic domain. The P-domain binds one molecule of calcium with high affinity, whereas the acidic C-domain binds multiple calcium ions with low affinity.
    The interaction with glycans occurs through a binding site in the globular lectin domain.
    The zinc binding sites are localized to the N-domain.
    Associates with PDIA3 through the tip of the extended arm formed by the P-domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Endoplasmic reticulum lumen. Cytoplasm > cytosol. Secreted > extracellular space > extracellular matrix. Cell surface. Also found in cell surface (T cells), cytosol and extracellular matrix. Associated with the lytic granules in the cytolytic T-lymphocytes.

Images

  • ab196159 staining Calreticulin in HeLa cells. The cells were fixed with 100% methanol (5 min), permeabiliszd in 0.1% Triton X-100 for 5 minutes and then blocked in 1% BSA/10% normal goat serum/0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h. The cells were then incubated with ab196159 at 1/100 dilution (shown in red) and ab195887, Mouse monoclonal [DM1A] to alpha Tubulin (Alexa Fluor® 488, shown in green) at 2µg/ml overnight at +4°C. Nuclear DNA was labelled in blue with DAPI.

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

  • Overlay histogram showing HAP1 wildtype (green line) and HAP1-CALR knockout cells (red line) stained with ab196159. The cells were fixed with 80% methanol (5 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Triton X-100 for 15 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab196159, 0.1µg/ml dilution) for 30 min at 22°C.

    A rabbit monoclonal IgG isotype control antibody  (ab199093) was used at the same concentration and conditions as the primary antibody (HAP1 wildtype - black line, HAP1-CALR  knockout - grey line). Unlabelled sample was also used as a control (this line is not shown for the purpose of simplicity).

    Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a 40 mW Red laser (640nm) and 670/14 bandpass filter.

  • ab196159 staining Calreticulin in wild-type HAP1 cells (top panel) and CALR knockout HAP1 cells (bottom panel). The cells were fixed with 100% methanol (5min), 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 with ab196159 at 1/500 dilution (shown in red) and ab195887at 1/250 dilution (shown in green) overnight at +4°C. Nuclear DNA was labelled in blue with DAPI.

Isotype control antibody (black line) was rabbit monoclonal IgG [EPR25A] Alexa Fluor® 647 (ab199093) used at the same concentration and conditions as the primary antibody. Unlabelled sample (blue line) was also used as a control. Acquisition of >5,000 events were collected using a solid-state 25mW red diode laser (635 nm) and 675/30 bandpass filter.
