|Application ||WB, E|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||70755 Da|
|Other Names||Phosphatidylinositol-binding clathrin assembly protein, Clathrin assembly lymphoid myeloid leukemia protein, PICALM, CALM|
|Target/Specificity||This PICALM antibody is generated from a rabbit immunized with a KLH conjugated synthetic peptide between 385-415 amino acids from the Central region of human PICALM.|
|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||PICALM Antibody (Center) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Assembly protein recruiting clathrin and adapter protein complex 2 (AP2) to cell membranes at sites of coated-pit formation and clathrin-vesicle assembly. May be required to determine the amount of membrane to be recycled, possibly by regulating the size of the clathrin cage. Involved in AP2-dependent clathrin-mediated endocytosis at the neuromuscular junction.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane, clathrin-coated pit. Golgi apparatus. Cytoplasmic vesicle, clathrin- coated vesicle. Nucleus. Note=Colocalized with clathrin in the Golgi area (PubMed:10436022). Interaction with FAM64A may target PICALM to the nucleus in some cells (PubMed:16491119)|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in all tissues examined.|
