Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab225381 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
This product gave a positive signal in A673 cells fixed with 4% formaldehyde (10 min) and 100% methanol (5 min).
FunctionMay act as a scaffolding protein within caveolar membranes. Interacts directly with G-protein alpha subunits and can functionally regulate their activity (By similarity). Involved in the costimulatory signal essential for T-cell receptor (TCR)-mediated T-cell activation. Its binding to DPP4 induces T-cell proliferation and NF-kappa-B activation in a T-cell receptor/CD3-dependent manner. Recruits CTNNB1 to caveolar membranes and may regulate CTNNB1-mediated signaling through the Wnt pathway.
Tissue specificityExpressed in muscle and lung, less so in liver, brain and kidney.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in CAV1 are the cause of congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 3 (CGL3) [MIM:612526]; also called Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy type 3 (BSCL3). Congenital generalized lipodystrophies are autosomal recessive disorders characterized by a near absence of adipose tissue, extreme insulin resistance, hypertriglyceridemia, hepatic steatosis and early onset of diabetes.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the caveolin family.
modificationsThe initiator methionine for isoform Beta is removed during or just after translation. The new N-terminal amino acid is then N-acetylated.
Cellular localizationGolgi apparatus membrane. Cell membrane. Membrane > caveola. Membrane raft. Colocalized with DPP4 in membrane rafts. Potential hairpin-like structure in the membrane. Membrane protein of caveolae.

ab225381 staining Caveolin-1 in wild-type HeLa cells (top panel) and CAV1 knockout HeLa cells (ab255371) (bottom panel). The cells were fixed with 100% methanol (5 min) then 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 ab225381 at 1/500 dilution and ab195887 (Mouse monoclonal to alpha Tubulin - Alexa Fluor® 488) at 1/250 dilution overnight at 4°C. Nuclear DNA was labelled in blue with DAPI.
Image was taken with a confocal microscope (Leica-Microsystems TCS SP8).
Flow cytometry overlay histogram showing wild-type (green line) and CAV1 knockout (ab255371) HeLa cells stained with ab225381 (red line). 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 containing 10% normal goat serum to block non-specific protein-protein interaction followed by the antibody (ab225381) (1x 106 in 100μl at 0.008μg/ml (1/62500) for 30 min at 22°C.
Isotype control antibody (black line) was Rabbit IgG (monoclonal) Alexa Fluor® 647 (ab199093) used at the same concentration and conditions as the primary antibody (wild-type - black line knockout - grey line). Unlabelled sample was also used as a control (this line is not shown for the purpose of simplicity).
Acquisition of >5000 events were collected using a 40 mW Red laser (640nm) and 660/10 bandpass filter.
