|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_071330, 50619, 23853 (mouse)|
|Predicted||Mouse, Rat, Pig, Dog, Cow|
|Calculated MW||73910 Da|
|Other Names||Differentially expressed in FDCP 6 homolog, DEF-6, IRF4-binding protein, DEF6, IBP|
|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-IBP / DEF6 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate-dependent guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) which plays a role in the activation of Rho GTPases RAC1, RhoA and CDC42. Can regulate cell morphology in cooperation with activated RAC1. Plays a role in Th2 (T helper cells) development and/or activation, perhaps by interfering with ZAP70 signaling (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Nucleus. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm, perinuclear region. Cell projection, filopodium. Note=Recruited to the plasma membrane upon binding phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate (PubMed:15023524). Binds to actin filaments (PubMed:15023524)|
|Tissue Location||Broadly expressed in the immune system and can be detected in T and B-cells.|

DEF6, or IBP, is a guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) for RAC (MIM 602048) and CDC42 (MIM 116952) that is highly expressed in B and T cells (Gupta et al., 2003 [PubMed 12923183]).
