FunctionActs in a Rho-dependent manner to recruit PFY1 to the membrane. Required for the assembly of F-actin structures, such as actin cables and stress fibers. Nucleates actin filaments. Binds to the barbed end of the actin filament and slows down actin polymerization and depolymerization. Required for cytokinesis, and transcriptional activation of the serum response factor. DFR proteins couple Rho and Src tyrosine kinase during signaling and the regulation of actin dynamics. Functions as a scaffold protein for MAPRE1 and APC to stabilize microtubules and promote cell migration (By similarity). Has neurite outgrowth promoting activity (By similarity). In hear cells, it may play a role in the regulation of actin polymerization in hair cells. The MEMO1-RHOA-DIAPH1 signaling pathway plays an important role in ERBB2-dependent stabilization of microtubules at the cell cortex. It controls the localization of APC and CLASP2 to the cell membrane, via the regulation of GSK3B activity. In turn, membrane-bound APC allows the localization of the MACF1 to the cell membrane, which is required for microtubule capture and stabilization.
Tissue specificityExpressed in brain, heart, placenta, lung, kidney, pancreas, liver, skeletal muscle and cochlea.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in DIAPH1 are the cause of deafness autosomal dominant type 1 (DFNA1) [MIM:124900]. DFNA1 is a form of sensorineural hearing loss. Sensorineural deafness results from damage to the neural receptors of the inner ear, the nerve pathways to the brain, or the area of the brain that receives sound information.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the formin homology family. Diaphanous subfamily.
Contains 1 DAD (diaphanous autoregulatory) domain.
Contains 1 FH1 (formin homology 1) domain.
Contains 1 FH2 (formin homology 2) domain.
Contains 1 GBD/FH3 (Rho GTPase-binding/formin homology 3) domain.
DomainDRFs are regulated by intramolecular GBD-DAD binding where Rho-GTP activates the DRFs by disrupting the GBD-DAD interaction (By similarity). DCAF7 binds to the FH2 (formin homology 2) domain.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Cell projection > ruffle membrane. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Membrane ruffles, especially at the tip of ruffles, of motile cells.

Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of human breast carcinoma tissue labelling DIAPH1 with ab11173 at 1/1000 (1µg/ml). Detection: DAB.
All lanes : ab11173 diluted 1/5000
All lanes : African Green Monkey COS-7 whole cell lysate with 5% Milk
Lysates/proteins at 20 µg per lane.
All lanes : HRP conjugated Goat anti-rabbit polyclonal diluted 1/4000
Developed using the ECL technique.
Performed under reducing conditions.
Observed band size: 200 kDa why is the actual band size different from the predicted?
Exposure time: 20 seconds
The gel running conditions were reducing. The blocking time was 2 hours at 25°C.
The primary antibody was incubated for 16 hours at 4°C.
IHC image of ab11173 staining in human kidney formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. 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 ab11173, 1µg/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.
