ab170190 - Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
FunctionProbably involved in connections of major cytoskeletal structures to the plasma membrane. In epithelial cells, required for the formation of microvilli and membrane ruffles on the apical pole. Along with PLEKHG6, required for normal macropinocytosis.
Tissue specificityExpressed in cerebral cortex, basal ganglia, hippocampus, hypophysis, and optic nerve. Weakly expressed in brain stem and diencephalon. Stronger expression was detected in gray matter of frontal lobe compared to white matter (at protein level). Component of the microvilli of intestinal epithelial cells. Preferentially expressed in astrocytes of hippocampus, frontal cortex, thalamus, parahippocampal cortex, amygdala, insula, and corpus callosum. Not detected in neurons in most tissues studied.
Sequence similaritiesContains 1 FERM domain.
Developmental stageVery strong staining is detected in the Purkinje cell layer and in part of the molecular layer of the infant brain compared to adult brain.
modificationsPhosphorylated by tyrosine-protein kinases.
Cellular localizationApical cell membrane. Cell projection. Cell projection > microvillus membrane. Cell projection > ruffle membrane. Cytoplasm > cell cortex. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Localization to the apical membrane of parietal cells depends on the interaction with MPP5. Localizes to cell extensions and peripheral processes of astrocytes (By similarity). Microvillar peripheral membrane protein.

Lane 1 : Wild-type HAP1 whole cell lysate
Lane 2 : EZR (Ezrin) knockout HAP1 whole cell lysate
Lane 3 : HeLa whole cell lysate
Lane 4 : MEF whole cell lysate
Lane 5 : NIH3T3 whole cell lysate
Lysates/proteins at 20 µg per lane.
Predicted band size: 69 kDa
Lanes 1 - 5: Merged signal (red and green). Green - ab4069 observed at 81 kDa. Red - loading control, ab181602, observed at 37 kDa.
ab4069 was shown to specifically react with Ezrin in wild-type HAP1 cells as signal was lost in EZR (Ezrin) knockout cells. Wild-type and EZR (Ezrin) knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. Ab4069 and ab181602 (Rabbit anti-GAPDH loading control) were incubated overnight at 4°C at 1 μg/ml and 1/20000 dilution respectively. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preabsorbed ab216772 and Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preabsorbed ab216777 secondary antibodies at 1/20000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.

Rat lung epithelial microvilli stained with ab4069 (anti-Ezrin) in frozen sections. Review by Marko Nykanen submitted 1 July 2004.
ab4069 at 1/100 dilution staining human HeLa cells by ICC/IF. The cells were formaldehyde fixed and blocked with BSA/goat serum prior to incubation with the antibody for 30 minutes. An Alexa-Fluor ® 568 conjugated goat anti-mouse IgG was used as the secondary.
ab4069 staining human lung by IHC-P.
Overlay histogram showing SH-SY5Y cells stained with ab4069 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab4069, 1µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in SH-SY5Y cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min used under the same conditions.

Immunohistochemical analysis of murine retina tissue, staining Ezrin (red) with ab4069.
Tissue was blocked with blocking solution before incubation with primary antibody (1/50) overnight at 4°C. An AlexaFluor®555-conjugated donkey anti-mouse IgG (1/20) was used as the secondary antibody.
