|Predicted||Mouse, Rat, Dog|
|Calculated MW||85698 Da|
|Other Names||Gelsolin, AGEL, Actin-depolymerizing factor, ADF, Brevin, GSN|
|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-Gelsolin / GSN Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Calcium-regulated, actin-modulating protein that binds to the plus (or barbed) ends of actin monomers or filaments, preventing monomer exchange (end-blocking or capping). It can promote the assembly of monomers into filaments (nucleation) as well as sever filaments already formed. Plays a role in ciliogenesis.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 2: Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton.|
|Tissue Location||Phagocytic cells, platelets, fibroblasts, nonmuscle cells, smooth and skeletal muscle cells|

The protein encoded by this gene binds to the plus ends of actin monomers and filaments to prevent monomer exchange. The encoded calcium-regulated protein functions in both assembly and disassembly of actin filaments. Defects in this gene are a cause of familial amyloidosis Finnish type (FAF). Multiple transcript variants encoding several different isoforms have been found for this gene.
