|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Dilution||IF (20 µg/ml), IHC-P (10 µg/ml), WB (0.5-1 µg/ml)|
|Other Names||LIM domain and actin-binding protein 1, Epithelial protein lost in neoplasm, LIMA1, EPLIN, SREBP3|
|Target/Specificity||LIMA1 antibody is human specific. At least four isoforms of LIMA1 are known to exist; this antibody will only detect the three largest isoforms.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Long term: -20°C; Short term: +4°C. Avoid repeat freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||EPLIN Antibody (N-Terminus) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Binds to actin monomers and filaments. Increases the number and size of actin stress fibers and inhibits membrane ruffling. Inhibits actin filament depolymerization. Bundles actin filaments, delays filament nucleation and reduces formation of branched filaments.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell junction, focal adhesion. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Note=This cytoskeletal protein co- localizes with actin stress fibers and focal adhesion plaques|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in placenta, kidney, pancreas, prostate, ovary, spleen and heart. Also detected in lung, liver, brain, skeletal muscle, thymus, testis and intestine Not detected in leukocytes. Isoform Beta expressed generally at very low levels. Isoform Alpha abundant in epithelial cells from mammary gland, prostate and in normal oral keratinocytes. Low levels in aortic endothelial cells and dermal fibroblasts. Not detectable in myocardium|
