|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-FEZ1 / Zygin 1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||May be involved in axonal outgrowth as component of the network of molecules that regulate cellular morphology and axon guidance machinery. Able to restore partial locomotion and axonal fasciculation to C.elegans unc-76 mutants in germline transformation experiments. May participate in the transport of mitochondria and other cargos along microtubules.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Cell membrane. Note=Colocalizes with both, alpha- and gamma-tubulin. Translocated from the plasma membrane to the cytoplasm by activation of the PKC zeta (By similarity)|
|Tissue Location||Mainly expressed in brain.|

This gene is an ortholog of the C. elegans unc-76 gene, which is necessary for normal axonal bundling and elongation within axon bundles. Expression of this gene in C. elegans unc-76 mutants can restore to the mutants partial locomotion and axonal fasciculation, suggesting that it also functions in axonal outgrowth. The N-terminal half of the gene product is highly acidic. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms of this protein have been described.
