|Application ||WB, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||NP_001744, 857, 12389 (mouse), 25404 (rat)|
|Predicted||Mouse, Rat, Pig, Dog|
|Calculated MW||20472 Da|
|Other Names||Caveolin-1, CAV1, CAV|
|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-Caveolin 1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||May act as a scaffolding protein within caveolar membranes. Interacts directly with G-protein alpha subunits and can functionally regulate their activity (By similarity). Involved in the costimulatory signal essential for T-cell receptor (TCR)- mediated T-cell activation. Its binding to DPP4 induces T-cell proliferation and NF-kappa-B activation in a T-cell receptor/CD3- dependent manner. Recruits CTNNB1 to caveolar membranes and may regulate CTNNB1-mediated signaling through the Wnt pathway.|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein Membrane, caveola; Peripheral membrane protein. Membrane raft Note=Colocalized with DPP4 in membrane rafts. Potential hairpin- like structure in the membrane. Membrane protein of caveolae|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in muscle and lung, less so in liver, brain and kidney|

The scaffolding protein encoded by this gene is the main component of the caveolae plasma membranes found in most cell types. The protein links integrin subunits to the tyrosine kinase FYN, an initiating step in coupling integrins to the Ras-ERK pathway and promoting cell cycle progression. The gene is a tumor suppressor gene candidate and a negative regulator of the Ras-p42/44 mitogen-activated kinase cascade. Caveolin 1 and caveolin 2 are located next to each other on chromosome 7 and express colocalizing proteins that form a stable hetero-oligomeric complex. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy. Alternatively spliced transcripts encode alpha and beta isoforms of caveolin 1.
