Application Abreviews Notes
WB 1/10000 - 1/50000. Predicted molecular weight: 60 kDa.
IP 1/10 - 1/100.
IHC-P 1/100 - 1/250. Perform heat mediated antigen retrieval with citrate buffer pH 6 before commencing with IHC staining protocol.
  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt or ICC.
  • Target

    • Function

      Tethering protein that sequesters GLUT4-containing vesicles in the cytoplasm in the absence of insulin. Modulates the amount of GLUT4 that is available at the cell surface.
    • Tissue specificity

      Ubiquitous. Highly expressed in testis, heart, skeletal muscle and pancreas.
    • Involvement in disease

      Note=A chromosomal aberration involving ASPSCR1 is found in patients with alveolar soft part sarcoma. Translocation t(X;17)(p11;q25) with TFE3 forms a ASPSCR1-TFE3 fusion protein.
      Note=A chromosomal aberration involving ASPSCR1 has been found in two patients with of papillary renal cell carcinoma. Translocation t(X;17)(p11.2;q25).
    • Sequence similarities

      Contains 1 UBX domain.
    • Cellular localization

      Endomembrane system.

      ab131237 was shown to specifically react with TUG when TUG knockout samples were used. Wild-type and TUG knockout samples were subjected to SDS-PAGE. ab131237 and ab8245 (loading control to GAPDH) were both diluted 1/10 000 and incubated overnight at 4°C. Blots were developed with Goat anti-Rabbit IgG H&L (IRDye® 800CW) preadsorbed ab216773 and Goat anti-Mouse IgG H&L (IRDye® 680RD) preadsorbed ab216776  secondary antibodies at 1/10000 dilution for 1 hour at room temperature before imaging.
