  • Function

    Plays an indispensable role in the organization of KRT8/KRT18 filaments. Acts as an endogenous molecular chaperone for neuronal proteins including huntingtin. Suppresses aggregation and toxicity of polyglutamine-containing, aggregation-prone proteins. Isoform B but not isoform A inhibits huntingtin aggregation. Has a stimulatory effect on the ATPase activity of HSP70 in a dose-dependent and time-dependent manner and hence acts as a co-chaperone of HSP70. Also reduces cellular toxicity and caspase-3 activity.
  • Tissue specificity

    Widely expressed. Highest levels in testis and brain, and lower levels in heart, spleen, intestine, ovary, placenta, lung, kidney, pancreas, thymus, prostate, skeletal muscle, liver and leukocytes. In testis, expressed in germ cells in the earlier stages of differentiation pathway as well as in spermatids. In brain, expressed at a higher level in hippocampus and thalamus and a lower level in amygdala, substantia nigra, corpus callosum and caudate nucleus.
  • Involvement in disease

    Limb-girdle muscular dystrophy 1E
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 J domain.
  • Domain

    The antiaggregation activity of isoform B resides in the serine-rich region and the C-terminus.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Nucleus. Cytoplasm, myofibril, sarcomere, Z line.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for contacting us. I am sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulties with one of our products. We take product complaints very seriously, and investigate every product that we feel may not be performing correctly. It would be very helpful if you could complete a questionnaire so that we can gather some further information regarding the samples tested and the protocol used. If you could please fill in both the WB and ICC questionnaires which i have attached to this email, this should only take five minutes per questionnaire. Once we receive the completed questionnaire, we will look at the protocol and see if there are any suggestions we can make that may improve the results. This information will also allow us to investigate this case internally and initiate additional testing where necessary. If the product was purchased in the last six months and is being used according to our Abpromise, we would be happy to replace or refund the antibody. I look forward to receiving your reply.
