|Precautions||ARF1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||GTP-binding protein that functions as an allosteric activator of the cholera toxin catalytic subunit, an ADP- ribosyltransferase. Involved in protein trafficking among different compartments. Modulates vesicle budding and uncoating within the Golgi complex. Deactivation induces the redistribution of the entire Golgi complex to the endoplasmic reticulum, suggesting a crucial role in protein trafficking. In its GTP-bound form, its triggers the association with coat proteins with the Golgi membrane. The hydrolysis of ARF1-bound GTP, which is mediated by ARFGAPs proteins, is required for dissociation of coat proteins from Golgi membranes and vesicles. The GTP-bound form interacts with PICK1 to limit PICK1-mediated inhibition of Arp2/3 complex activity; the function is linked to AMPA receptor (AMPAR) trafficking, regulation of synaptic plasicity of excitatory synapses and spine shrinkage during long-term depression (LTD).|

ARF1 (small GTP-binding ADP-ribosylation factor 1) is a member of the ARF family, which contains five other ARF proteins (1). ARF1 functions in various membrane trafficking events in the ER-Golgi system and in the maintenance of organelle structure. Inactive ARF1 (ARF1-GDP) localizes in the cytoplasm, while the active form (ARF1-GTP) localizes in the membrane (2-3). Active ARF1 is also localized to the Golgi complex by regulating the assembly of coat proteins onto membranes and mediating traffic in the ER-Golgi. ARF1 activates phospholipase D and phosphatidylinositol 4-phosphate 5-kinase, and it recruits COPI to membranes (4-5).
