|Other Names||Pleckstrin homology domain-containing family A member 8, PH domain-containing family A member 8, Phosphatidylinositol-four-phosphate adapter protein 2, FAPP-2, Phosphoinositol 4-phosphate adapter protein 2, hFAPP2, Serologically defined breast cancer antigen NY-BR-86, PLEKHA8, FAPP2|
|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-FAPP2 / PLEKHA8 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Cargo transport protein that is required for apical transport from the Golgi complex. Transports AQP2 from the trans- Golgi network (TGN) to sites of AQP2 phosphorylation. Mediates the non-vesicular transport of glucosylceramide (GlcCer) from the trans-Golgi network (TGN) to the plasma membrane and plays a pivotal role in the synthesis of complex glycosphingolipids. Binding of both phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate (PIP) and ARF1 are essential for the GlcCer transfer ability. Also required for primary cilium formation, possibly by being involved in the transport of raft lipids to the apical membrane, and for membrane tubulation.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Golgi apparatus, trans-Golgi network membrane. Membrane; Peripheral membrane protein Note=Mainly localized to the trans-Golgi network (TGN) but also found at the rims of Golgi cisternae. Associates with ARF1 at Golgi apparatus membranes|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in kidney cell lines.|
