|Application ||IHC, E|
|Description||RTN3, reticulon 3. The reticulons are a group of highly conserved genes with preferential expression in neuroendocrine tissues. RTN3 may be involved in membrane trafficking in the early secretory pathway. Inhibits BACE1 activity and amyloid precursor protein processing. May induce caspase-8 cascade and apoptosis. May favor BCL2 translocation to the mitochondria upon endoplasmic reticulum stress. In case of enteroviruses infection, RTN3 may be involved in the viral replication or pathogenesis. There are 5 isoforms.|
|Immunogen||Purified recombinant fragment of RTN3 expressed in E. Coli.|
|Formulation||Ascitic fluid containing 0.03% sodium azide.|
|Other Names||Reticulon-3, Homolog of ASY protein, HAP, Neuroendocrine-specific protein-like 2, NSP-like protein 2, Neuroendocrine-specific protein-like II, NSP-like protein II, NSPLII, RTN3, ASYIP, NSPL2|
|Dilution||IHC~~1/200 - 1/1000|
|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||RTN3 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||May be involved in membrane trafficking in the early secretory pathway. Inhibits BACE1 activity and amyloid precursor protein processing. May induce caspase-8 cascade and apoptosis. May favor BCL2 translocation to the mitochondria upon endoplasmic reticulum stress. In case of enteroviruses infection, RTN3 may be involved in the viral replication or pathogenesis.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Golgi apparatus membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Isoform 3 is widely expressed, with highest levels in brain, where it is enriched in neuronal cell bodies from gray matter (at protein level). Three times more abundant in macula than in peripheral retina. Isoform 1 is expressed at high levels in brain and at low levels in skeletal muscle. Isoform 2 is only found in melanoma.|
