|Precautions||Emerin Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Stabilizes and promotes the formation of a nuclear actin cortical network. Stimulates actin polymerization in vitro by binding and stabilizing the pointed end of growing filaments. Inhibits beta-catenin activity by preventing its accumulation in the nucleus. Acts by influencing the nuclear accumulation of beta- catenin through a CRM1-dependent export pathway. Links centrosomes to the nuclear envelope via a microtubule association. EMD and BAF are cooperative cofactors of HIV-1 infection. Association of EMD with the viral DNA requires the presence of BAF and viral integrase. The association of viral DNA with chromatin requires the presence of BAF and EMD. Required for proper localization of non-farnesylated prelamin-A/C.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus inner membrane; Single-pass membrane protein; Nucleoplasmic side. Nucleus outer membrane Note=Colocalized with BANF1 at the central region of the assembling nuclear rim, near spindle-attachment sites. The accumulation of different intermediates of prelamin-A/C (non- farnesylated or carboxymethylated farnesylated prelamin-A/C) in fibroblasts modify its localization in the nucleus|
|Tissue Location||Skeletal muscle, heart, colon, testis, ovary and pancreas|

Emerin Antibody: Emerin is a serine-rich nuclear membrane protein and a member of the nuclear lamina-associated protein family that includes proteins such as LAP2 and MAN1. Each family member, including Emerin, has an ~40 amino acid LEM-domains that binds barrier-to-autointegration (BANF1), a conserved chromatin protein that also serves as a host cell component of retroviral integration complexes, including that of HIV. Emerin is anchored at the inner membrane of the nuclear envelope where it binds to nuclear intermediate filaments that are formed by lamin proteins. Dreifuss-Emery muscular dystrophy is an X-linked inherited degenerative myopathy resulting from mutation in the emerin gene.
