  • Relevance

    The centaurin alpha 1 protein is a high affinity PtdIns(3,4,5)P3 binding protein enriched in brain. By acting as a GTPase activating protein for ADP ribosylation factor 6 (ARF6), centaurin alpha 1 is able to switch off ARF6 and inhibit its ability to mediate beta 2 adrenoceptor internalization and negatively regulates ARF6 activity by functioning as an in vivo PIP3 dependent ARF6 GAP.

  • IHC image of ab27476 staining in human normal hippocampus formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol B. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab27476, 10µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.
