|Application ||WB, E|
|Other Accession||Q99689, 9638|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||45119 Da|
|Application Notes||FEZ1 antibody can be used for the detection of FEZ1 by Western blot at 0.5 - 1 μg/mL. Despite its predicted molecular weight, FEZ1 will often run at higher molecular weight in SDS-PAGE.|
|Target/Specificity||FEZ1 antibody was raised against a 19 amino acid synthetic peptide from near the carboxy terminus of human FEZ1.|
The immunogen is located within amino acids 270 - 320 of FEZ1.
|Reconstitution & Storage||FEZ1 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||FEZ1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||May be involved in axonal outgrowth as component of the network of molecules that regulate cellular morphology and axon guidance machinery. Able to restore partial locomotion and axonal fasciculation to C.elegans unc-76 mutants in germline transformation experiments. May participate in the transport of mitochondria and other cargos along microtubules.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Cell membrane. Note=Colocalizes with both, alpha- and gamma-tubulin. Translocated from the plasma membrane to the cytoplasm by activation of the PKC zeta (By similarity)|
|Tissue Location||Mainly expressed in brain.|

FEZ1 Antibody: Similar to its C. elegans homolog UNC-76, mammalian FEZ1, an abundant membrane protein and protein kinase C (PKC)-Z substrate, is involved in axonal guidance. Following phosphorylation by PKC-Z, FEZ1 translocates from the plasma membrane to the cytoplasm. FEZ1 is then able to interact with a number of proteins involved in axonal outgrowth and cellular transport such as DISC1, a candidate gene for schizophrenia, as well as kinesin-1, a microtubule-based motor protein. FEZ1 also interacts with proteins involved in transcriptional regulation and chromatin remodeling, suggesting that FEZ1 may have nuclear regulatory functions in addition to those for neuronal development. At least two distinct isoforms of FEZ1 are known to exist.
