  • Function

    May be involved in cell migration, cartilage development and in linking signal transduction pathways to the cytoskeleton (By similarity). May promote apoptosis, via its cleavage by caspase-3.
  • Tissue specificity

    Prostate and placenta. Down regulated in prostate cancer.
  • Sequence similarities

    Contains 1 phosphatase tensin-type domain.
    Contains 1 SH2 domain.
  • Post-translational

    Proteolytically cleaved by caspase-3 during apoptosis.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell junction > focal adhesion. Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton.

  • Immunohistochemistry (Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections) analysis of Human hepatocellular carcinoma tissue sections labeling TNS4/CTEN with Purified ab99887 at 1/100 dilution (0.92 µg/ml). Heat mediated antigen retrieval was performed Heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH 6.0, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20mins. Rabbit specific IHC polymer detection kit HRP/DAB (ab209101) was used as the secondary antibody. Negative control: PBS instead of the primary antibody. Hematoxylin was used as a counterstain.
  • Flow cytometry analysis of Hela (human cervix adenocarcinoma) labeling TNS4/CTEN with purified ab99887 (red). Cells were fixed with 4% paraformaldehyde and permeabilised with 90% methanol. Goat anti rabbit IgG (Alexa Fluor® 488, ab150077) was used as a secondary antibody. Isotype control -Rabbit monoclonal IgG (ab172730) (Black). Unlableled control -Unlabelled cells (blue).

  • Staining of Human TNS4/CTEN in a Formalin/PFA-fixed paraffin-embedded sections of Human Liver Carcinoma using ab99887 at a dilution of 1/100.
