Product nameHuman Tubby peptide
Our Abpromise guarantee covers the use of ab47529 in the following tested applications.
The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
- First try to dissolve a small amount of peptide in either water or buffer. The more charged residues on a peptide, the more soluble it is in aqueous solutions.
- If the peptide doesn’t dissolve try an organic solvent e.g. DMSO, then dilute using water or buffer.
- Consider that any solvent used must be compatible with your assay. If a peptide does not dissolve and you need to recover it, lyophilise to remove the solvent.
- Gentle warming and sonication can effectively aid peptide solubilisation. If the solution is cloudy or has gelled the peptide may be in suspension rather than solubilised.
- Peptides containing cysteine are easily oxidised, so should be prepared in solution just prior to use.

RelevanceTubby is a bipartite transcription factor. It may play a role in obesity and sensorineural degradation. The crystal structure has been determined for a similar protein in mouse, which functions as a membrane bound transcription regulator that translocates to the nucleus in response to phosphoinositide hydrolysis.
Cellular localizationCytoplasm. Nucleus. Secreted. Cell membrane. Binds phospholipid and is anchored to the plasma membrane through binding phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate. Is released upon activation of phospholipase C. Translocates from the plasma membrane to the nucleus upon activation of guanine nucleotide-binding protein G(q) subunit alpha. Does not have a cleavable signal peptide and is secreted by a non-conventional pathway.
