  • Target

    • Function

      Plays a role in protein sorting and trafficking between the trans-Golgi network (TGN) and endosomes. Mediates the ARF-dependent recruitment of clathrin to the TGN and binds ubiquitinated proteins and membrane cargo molecules with a cytosolic acidic cluster-dileucine (AC-LL) motif.
    • Tissue specificity

      Ubiquitously expressed.
    • Sequence similarities

      Belongs to the GGA protein family.
      Contains 1 GAE domain.
      Contains 1 GAT domain.
      Contains 1 VHS domain.
    • Domain

      The VHS domain functions as a recognition module for sorting signals composed of an acidic cluster followed by two leucines (AC-LL motif).
      The GAT domain is responsible for interaction with ARF-GTP, UBC and RABEP1. Required for recruitment to the TGN it prevents ARF-GTP hydrolysis.
      The unstructured hinge region contains clathrin-binding but no autoinhibitory (AC-LL) motifs.
      The GAE domain binds accessory proteins regulating GGAs function.
    • Post-translational

      Phosphorylated by CK2 and dephosphorylated by PP2A. Phosphorylation of GGA1 allows the internal AC-LL motif to bind the VHS domain and to inhibit the recognition of cargo signals. Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    • Cellular localization

      Golgi apparatus > trans-Golgi network membrane. Endosome membrane.

      ab170956 was shown to recognize GGA1 when GGA1 knockout samples were used, along with additional cross-reactive bands. Wild-type and GGA1 knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab170956 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were diluted 2 µg/ml and 1/10000 respectively and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed ab216776 secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
