|Application ||WB, IHC-P, E|
|Calculated MW||107895 Da|
|Antigen Region||932-960 aa|
|Other Names||General vesicular transport factor p115, Protein USO1 homolog, Transcytosis-associated protein, TAP, Vesicle-docking protein, USO1, VDP|
|Target/Specificity||This USO1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 932-960 amino acids from the C-terminal region of human USO1.|
|Format||Purified polyclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein A column, followed by peptide affinity purification.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||USO1 Antibody (C-term) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||General vesicular transport factor required for intercisternal transport in the Golgi stack; it is required for transcytotic fusion and/or subsequent binding of the vesicles to the target membrane. May well act as a vesicular anchor by interacting with the target membrane and holding the vesicular and target membranes in proximity.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytosol. Golgi apparatus membrane; Peripheral membrane protein Note=Recycles between the cytosol and the Golgi apparatus during interphase. During interphase, the phosphorylated form is found exclusively in cytosol; the unphosphorylated form is associated with Golgi apparatus membranes.|
Provided below are standard protocols that you may find useful for product applications.
The protein encoded by this gene is a peripheral membrane protein which recycles between the cytosol and the Golgi apparatus during interphase. It is regulated by phosphorylation: dephosphorylated protein associates with the Golgi membrane and dissociates from the membrane upon phosphorylation. Ras-associated protein 1 recruits this protein to coat protein complex II (COPII) vesicles during budding from the endoplasmic reticulum, where it interacts with a set of COPII vesicle-associated SNAREs to form a cis-SNARE complex that promotes targeting to the Golgi apparatus. Transport from the ER to the cis/medial Golgi compartments requires the action of this gene product, GM130 and giantin in a sequential manner.
