|Application ||WB, IF, ICC, E|
|Other Accession||AAC51674, 2331281|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 128 kDa |
Observed: 135 kDa
|Application Notes||TSC1 antibody can be used for the detection of TSC1 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunocytochemistry starting at 2 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 2 µg/mL.|
|Other Names||TSC1 Antibody: LAM, TSC, KIAA0243, Hamartin, Tuberous sclerosis 1 protein, tuberous sclerosis 1|
|Target/Specificity||TSC1; At least two isoforms of TSC1 are known to exist; this antibody will detect both isoforms. TSC1 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with TSC2.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||TSC1 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year. As with all antibodies care should be taken to avoid repeated freeze thaw cycles. Antibodies should not be exposed to prolonged high temperatures.|
|Precautions||TSC1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||In complex with TSC2, inhibits the nutrient-mediated or growth factor-stimulated phosphorylation of S6K1 and EIF4EBP1 by negatively regulating mTORC1 signaling. Seems not to be required for TSC2 GAP activity towards RHEB. Implicated as a tumor suppressor. Involved in microtubule-mediated protein transport, but this seems to be due to unregulated mTOR signaling.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Note=At steady state found in association with membranes|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in skeletal muscle, followed by heart, brain, placenta, pancreas, lung, liver and kidney. Also expressed in embryonic kidney cells|

TSC1 Antibody: Tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) is an autosomal dominant tumor syndrome caused by mutations in either of the TSC1 or TSC2 tumor suppressor genes. The products of these genes form a protein complex that indirectly decreases the signaling of the mammalian Target of Rapamycin (TOR), an evolutionarily conserved serine/threonine kinase that regulates cell growth and cell cycle through its ability to integrate signals from nutrient levels and growth factors. TOR activity is stimulated by Rheb, a member of the Ras superfamily of G-proteins, when the GTP/GDP ratio bound to Rheb is high. Immunoprecipitated TSC1/TSC2 has been shown to stimulate Rheb GTPase activity in vitro, suggesting that the TSC1/TSC2 decreases the ability of Rheb to stimulate TOR activity. This is supported by experiments showing overexpression of TSC1 and TSC2 results in a significant decrease in the GTP/GDP ratio bound to Rheb and the inhibition of cell growth. A shorter 40 kDa isoform of TSC1 has been shown to exist but its function is unknown.
