  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for ICC,IHC-P or IP.
  • Target

    • Function
      Ca(2+)-regulated actin-binding protein.
    • Tissue specificity
      Major component of microvilli of intestinal epithelial cells and kidney proximal tubule cells.
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the villin/gelsolin family.
      Contains 6 gelsolin-like repeats.
      Contains 1 HP (headpiece) domain.
    • Domain
      Consists of a large core fragment, the N-terminal portion, and a small headpiece, the C-terminal portion. The headpiece binds F-actin strongly in both the presence and absence of calcium.
    • Cellular localization
      Cytoplasm > cytoskeleton.
