|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||NP_001018865.2, NP_001018864.2|
|Calculated MW||68929 Da|
|Antigen Region||384-411 aa|
|Other Names||IQ calmodulin-binding motif-containing protein 1, Nephrocystin-5, p53 and DNA damage-regulated IQ motif protein, PIQ, IQCB1, KIAA0036, NPHP5|
|Target/Specificity||This IQCB1 antibody is generated from rabbits immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 384-411 amino acids from the Central region of human IQCB1.|
|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||IQCB1 Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in ciliogenesis. The function in an early step in cilia formation depends on its association with CEP290/NPHP6 (PubMed:21565611, PubMed:23446637). Involved in regulation of the BBSome complex integrity, specifically for presence of BBS2 and BBS5 in the complex, and in ciliary targeting of selected BBSome cargos. May play a role in controlling entry of the BBSome complex to cilia possibly implicating CEP290/NPHP6 (PubMed:25552655).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome, centriole Note=Localization to the centrosome depends on the interaction with CEP290/NPHP6|
|Tissue Location||Ubiquitously expressed in fetal and adult tissues. Localized to the outer segments and connecting cilia of photoreceptor cells. Up-regulated in a number of primary colorectal and gastric tumors.|

This gene encodes a nephrocystin protein that interacts with calmodulin and the retinitis pigmentosa GTPase regulator protein. The encoded protein has a central coiled-coil region and two calmodulin-binding IQ domains. It is localized to the primary cilia of renal epithelial cells and connecting cilia of photoreceptor cells. The protein is thought to play a role in ciliary function. Defects in this gene result in Senior-Loken syndrome type 5. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
