ab170190 - Mouse monoclonal IgG1, is suitable for use as an isotype control with this antibody.
FunctionAdapter protein that binds to and probably organizes the subcellular localization of a variety of membrane proteins. May link various receptors to the actin cytoskeleton and the extracellular matrix via the dystrophin glycoprotein complex. Plays an important role in synapse formation and in the organization of UTRN and acetylcholine receptors at the neuromuscular synapse. Binds to phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate.
Tissue specificityHigh expression in skeletal muscle and heart. Low expression in brain, pancreas, liver, kidney and lung. Not detected in placenta.
Involvement in diseaseLong QT syndrome 12 (LQT12) [MIM:612955]: A heart disorder characterized by a prolonged QT interval on the ECG and polymorphic ventricular arrhythmias. They cause syncope and sudden death in response to exercise or emotional stress, and can present with a sentinel event of sudden cardiac death in infancy. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the syntrophin family.
Contains 1 PDZ (DHR) domain.
Contains 2 PH domains.
Contains 1 SU (syntrophin unique) domain.
DomainThe PH 1 domain mediates the oligomerization in a calcium dependent manner, and the association with the phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate.
The PDZ domain binds to the last three or four amino acids of ion channels and receptor proteins. The association with dystrophin or related proteins probably leaves the PDZ domain available to recruit proteins to the membrane.
The SU domain binds calmodulin in a calcium-dependent manner.
modificationsPhosphorylated by CaM-kinase II. Phosphorylation may inhibit the interaction with DMD.
Cellular localizationCell membrane > sarcolemma. Cell junction. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton. In skeletal muscle, it localizes at the cytoplasmic side of the sarcolemmal membrane and at neuromuscular junctions.

Overlay histogram showing SH-SY5Y cells stained with ab11425 (red line). The cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde (10 min) and then permeabilized with 0.1% PBS-Tween for 20 min. The cells were then incubated in 1x PBS / 10% normal goat serum / 0.3M glycine to block non-specific protein-protein interactions followed by the antibody (ab11425, 0.5µg/1x106 cells) for 30 min at 22ºC. The secondary antibody used was DyLight® 488 goat anti-mouse IgG (H+L) (ab96879) at 1/500 dilution for 30 min at 22ºC. Isotype control antibody (black line) was mouse IgG1 [ICIGG1] (ab91353, 2µg/1x106 cells) used under the same conditions. Acquisition of >5,000 events was performed. This antibody gave a positive signal in SH-SY5Y cells fixed with 80% methanol (5 min)/permeabilized in 0.1% PBS-Tween used under the same conditions.

Syntrophin was immunoprecipitated using 0.5mg Mouse Skeletal Muscle tissue lysate, 5µg of Mouse monoclonal to Syntrophin and 50µl of protein G magnetic beads (+). No antibody was added to the control (-).
The antibody was incubated under agitation with Protein G beads for 10min, Mouse Skeletal Muscle tissue lysate lysate diluted in RIPA buffer was added to each sample and incubated for a further 10min under agitation.
Proteins were eluted by addition of 40µl SDS loading buffer and incubated for 10min at 70oC; 10µl of each sample was separated on a SDS PAGE gel, transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane, blocked with 5% BSA and probed with ab11425.
Secondary: Goat polyclonal to mouse IgG light chain specific (HRP) at 1/5000 dilution.
Band: 58kDa; Syntrophin
