|Other Names||Partitioning defective 6 homolog alpha, PAR-6, PAR-6 alpha, PAR-6A, PAR6C, Tax interaction protein 40, TIP-40, PARD6A, PAR6A|
|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-PAR6alpha / PARD6A Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Adapter protein involved in asymmetrical cell division and cell polarization processes. Probably involved in the formation of epithelial tight junctions. Association with PARD3 may prevent the interaction of PARD3 with F11R/JAM1, thereby preventing tight junction assembly. The PARD6-PARD3 complex links GTP-bound Rho small GTPases to atypical protein kinase C proteins (PubMed:10873802). Regulates centrosome organization and function. Essential for the centrosomal recruitment of key proteins that control centrosomal microtubule organization (PubMed:20719959).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Cell projection, ruffle. Cell junction, tight junction. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome, centriolar satellite. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Note=Colocalizes with GTP-bound CDC42 or RAC1 at membrane ruffles and with PARD3 and PRKCI at epithelial tight junctions. Recruited to the centrosome by a microtubule and dynein-dynactin-dependent mechanism|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in pancreas, skeletal muscle, brain and heart. Weakly expressed in kidney and placenta|

This gene is a member of the PAR6 family and encodes a protein with a PSD95/Discs-large/ZO1 (PDZ) domain and a semi-Cdc42/Rac interactive binding (CRIB) domain. This cell membrane protein is involved in asymmetrical cell division and cell polarization processes as a member of a multi-protein complex. The protein also has a role in the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) that characterizes the invasive phenotype associated with metastatic carcinomas. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized.
