The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.

Application Abreviews Notes
IHC-P Use a concentration of 3 - 6 µg/ml. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
ICC/IF Use at an assay dependent concentration. PubMed: 24446484
WB Use a concentration of 1 - 3 µg/ml. Can be blocked with Human ELMO2 peptide (ab22879).


  • Function
    Involved in cytoskeletal rearrangements required for phagocytosis of apoptotic cells and cell motility. Acts in assocation with DOCK1 and CRK. Was initially proposed to be required in complex with DOCK1 to activate Rac Rho small GTPases. May enhance the guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) activity of DOCK1.
  • Tissue specificity
    Widely expressed, with a higher expression in skeletal muscle, kidney and placenta.
  • Sequence similarities
    Contains 1 ELMO domain.
    Contains 1 PH domain.
  • Cellular localization
    Cytoplasm. Cytoplasm > cytosol. Membrane.
