  • Function

    Structural protein involved in the filamentous cross-bridging between microtubules and other skeletal elements.
  • Tissue specificity

  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the MAP1 family.
  • Domain

    The basic region containing the repeats may be responsible for the binding of MAP1A to microtubules.
  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylated upon DNA damage, probably by ATM or ATR.
    LC2 is generated from MAP1A by proteolytic processing.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton.

  • IHC image of ab89648 staining in human hippocampus formalin fixed paraffin embedded tissue section, performed on a Leica BondTM system using the standard protocol F. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20 mins. The section was then incubated with ab89648, 5µg/ml, for 15 mins at room temperature and detected using an HRP conjugated compact polymer system. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX.
  • ICC/IF image of ab89648 stained PC12 cells. The cells were 100% methanol fixed (5 min) and then incubated in 1%BSA / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine in 0.1% PBS-Tween for 1h to permeabilise the cells and block non-specific protein-protein interactions. The cells were then incubated with the antibody ab89648 at 5µg/ml overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was DyLight® 488 goat anti- rabbit (ab96899) IgG (H+L) used at a 1/1000 dilution for 1h. Alexa Fluor® 594 WGA was used to label plasma membranes (red) at a 1/200 dilution for 1h. DAPI was used to stain the cell nuclei (blue) at a concentration of 1.43µM.
