|Other Names||Nck-associated protein 1-like, Hematopoietic protein 1, Membrane-associated protein HEM-1, NCKAP1L, HEM1|
|Format||0.5 mg/ml in Tris saline, 0.02% sodium azide, pH7.3 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||HEM1 Antibody (internal region) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Essential hematopoietic-specific regulator of the actin cytoskeleton (Probable). Controls lymphocyte development, activation, proliferation and homeostasis, erythrocyte membrane stability, as well as phagocytosis and migration by neutrophils and macrophages (PubMed:16417406, PubMed:17696648). Component of the WAVE2 complex which signals downstream of RAC to stimulate F- actin polymerization. Required for stabilization and/or translation of the WAVE2 complex proteins in hematopoietic cells (By similarity). Exhibits complex cycles of activation and inhibition to generate waves of propagating the assembly with actin (PubMed:16417406). Also involved in mechanisms WAVE- independent to regulate myosin and actin polymerization during neutrophil chemotaxis (PubMed:17696648).|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Single-pass membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Cytoplasm Note=Localizes to the leading edge of polarized neutrophils|
|Tissue Location||Expressed only in cells of hematopoietic origin (PubMed:7643388, PubMed:1932118). Expressed in neutrophils (at protein level) (PubMed:16417406)|
