Filament-forming cytoskeletal GTPase. Required for normal organization of the actin cytoskeleton. Required for normal progress through mitosis. Involved in cytokinesis. Required for normal association of CENPE with the kinetochore. Plays a role in ciliogenesis and collective cell movements.
Belongs to the septin family.
Cytoplasm. Chromosome > centromere > kinetochore. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > spindle. Cleavage furrow. Midbody. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton > cilium axoneme. Distributed throughout the cytoplasm in prometaphase cells. Associated with the spindle during metaphase. Associated with the central spindle and at the cleavage furrow in anaphase cells. Detected at the midbody in telophase. Associated with actin stress fibers.
Detection of SEPT7 by Western Blot of Immunoprecipitates. Samples: Whole cell lysate (1 mg for IP; 20% of IP loaded) from HeLa cells was immunoprecipitated using ab186010 at 6 µg/mg (1), a control rabbit anti-SEPT7 antibody (2) and negative control IgG (3). For blotting immunopreciptated SEPT7 ab186010 was used at 1 µg/ml. ECL with an exposure time of 10 seconds was used for detection.
