  • Function

    Protein phosphatase which regulates actin filament dynamics. Dephosphorylates and activates the actin binding/depolymerizing factor cofilin, which subsequently binds to actin filaments and stimulates their disassembly. Inhibitory phosphorylation of cofilin is mediated by LIMK1, which may also be dephosphorylated and inactivated by this protein.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the protein-tyrosine phosphatase family.
    Contains 1 tyrosine-protein phosphatase domain.
  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylated. Inhibitory phosphorylation by PAK4 promotes binding to YWHAZ. Phosphorylation at Ser-978 is decreased by stimuli which promote actin reorganization and lamellipodia formation. Can be dephosphorylated and activated by PPP3CA/calcineurin A. Phosphorylation decreases immediately prior to telophase.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. Cell projection > lamellipodium. Cleavage furrow. Midbody. Also recruited to actin rich membrane protrusions such as lamellipodia, which may allow local control of actin dynamics at sites of cell locomotion. Also localized to the cleavage furrow and the midbody during cytokinesis.

  • ab76943 at 1µg/ml staining Slingshot homolog 1/SSH1 in HeLa whole cell lysate immunoprecipitated using ab76943 at 3µg/mg lysate (1 mg/IP; 20% of IP loaded/lane).

  • ICC/IF image of ab76943 stained HeLa cells. The cells were 4% formaldehyde fixed (10 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 (ab76943, 1µg/ml) overnight at +4°C. The secondary antibody (green) was Alexa Fluor® 488 goat anti-rabbit 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.

Customer reviews and Q&As


Thank you for contacting Abcam. Regarding the lysis/IP buffer to use with these antibodies, they have been tested with a buffer using the following formulation: IP lysis Buffer 12.5 ml 1M NaCl (250mM) 2.5 ml 1M Tris (50mM) 500ul 0.5M EDTA (5mM) 2.5ml 10% NP-40 32 ml dH20 That is not to say that RIPA will not work, however since these are cytoplasmic proteins, it would not be necessary. I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any additional questions.
