Target

  • Function

    Actin-binding protein that enhances membrane ruffling and RAC activation. Enhances the actin-bundling activity of LCP1. Binds calcium. Plays a role in RAC signaling and in phagocytosis. May play a role in macrophage activation and function. Promotes the proliferation of vascular smooth muscle cells and of T-lymphocytes. Enhances lymphocyte migration. Plays a role in vascular inflammation.
  • Tissue specificity

    Detected in T-lymphocytes and peripheral blood mononuclear cells.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 2 EF-hand domains.
  • Post-translational
    modifications

    Phosphorylated on serine residues.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cell projection > ruffle membrane. Associated with the actin cytoskeleton at membrane ruffles and at sites of phagocytosis.

Images

  • Immunohistochemical analysis of paraffin-embedded Mouse endometrium tissue labeling Iba1 with ab178847 at 1/8000 dilution, followed by Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) (ab97051) at 1/500 dilution.

    Cytoplasm staining on macrophages of the mouse endometrium.

    Counter stained with Hematoxylin.

    Secondary antibody only control: Used PBS instead of primary antibody, secondary antibody is Goat Anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (HRP) (ab97051) at 1/500 dilution.

    This data was developed using the same antibody clone in a different buffer formulation containing PBS, BSA, glycerol, and sodium azide (ab178847).
