|Calculated MW||22988 Da|
|Application & Usage||Western blotting (0.5-4 µg/ml). However, the optimal concentrations should be determined individually. The antibody recognizes 28 kDa D4-GDI in human samples. Jurkat cell lysate can be used as a positive control.|

|Formulation||100 µg (0.5 mg/ml) affinity purified rabbit polyclonal antibody in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) containing 30% glycerol, 0.5% BSA, and 0.01% thimerosal.|
|Handling||The antibody solution should be gently mixed before use.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||-20 °C|
|Precautions||D4-GDI Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||GDIA2, GDID4, RAP1GN1|
|Function||Regulates the GDP/GTP exchange reaction of the Rho proteins by inhibiting the dissociation of GDP from them, and the subsequent binding of GTP to them (PubMed:8356058, PubMed:7512369). Regulates reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton mediated by Rho family members (PubMed:8262133).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytosol|
|Tissue Location||Detected in bone marrow, thymus and spleen.|

D4-GDI (GDP dissociation inhibitor) is a negative regulator of the ras-related Rho family of GTPases. Since the Rho GTPases promote cytoskeleytal and membrane changes associated with apoptotic cell death, the removal of the D4-GDI block thro µgh its cleavage is important for inducing apoptosis. Caspase-3 cleaves the 28kD mature form of D4-GDI to give a 23kDa and 5kDa size fragment. The 23kDa fragment then translocates to the nucleus. The mechanisms involving cleavage of D4-GDI with apoptosis are not presently known. Activation of the Jun N-terminal kinase, a regulator of apoptosis, may be one of the mechanisms.
