|Other Names||B-cell receptor-associated protein 31, BCR-associated protein 31, Bap31, 6C6-AG tumor-associated antigen, Protein CDM, p28, BCAP31, BAP31, DXS1357E|
|Format||0.5 mg IgG/ml in Tris saline (20mM Tris pH7.3, 150mM NaCl), 0.02% sodium azide, with 0.5% bovine serum albumin|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||Goat Anti-BCAP31 / BAP31 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Functions as a chaperone protein. Is one of the most abundant endoplasmic reticulum (ER) proteins. Plays a role in the export of secreted proteins in the ER, the recognition of abnormally folded protein and their targeting to the ER associated-degradation (ERAD). Also serves as a cargo receptor for the export of transmembrane proteins. May be involved in CASP8- mediated apoptosis.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Endoplasmic reticulum-Golgi intermediate compartment membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=May shuttle between the ER and the intermediate compartment/cis-Golgi complex|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitous. Highly expressed in neurons and discrete endocrine cells.|

This gene encodes a member of the B-cell receptor associated protein 31 superfamily. The encoded protein is a multi-pass transmembrane protein of the endoplasmic reticulum that is involved in the anterograde transport of membrane proteins from the endoplasmic reticulum to the Golgi and in the caspase 8-mediated apoptosis. Microdeletions in this gene are associated with the contiguous ABCD1/DXS1375E deletion syndrome. Two pseudogenes have been identified on chromosome 16. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding distinct isoforms have been described although the biological validity of some of the variants has not been determined.
