|Application ||WB, IHC-P, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_001020119, 68348709|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||70065 Da|
|Application Notes||TOCA-1 antibody can be used for detection of TOCA-1 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2.5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||TOCA-1 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||TOCA-1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Required to coordinate membrane tubulation with reorganization of the actin cytoskeleton during endocytosis. May bind to lipids such as phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate and phosphatidylserine and promote membrane invagination and the formation of tubules. Also promotes CDC42-induced actin polymerization by activating the WASL/N-WASP-WASPIP/WIP complex, the predominant form of WASL/N-WASP in cells. Actin polymerization may promote the fission of membrane tubules to form endocytic vesicles. Essential for autophagy of intracellular bacterial pathogens.|

TOCA-1 Antibody: Actin reorganization is important for the regulation of neuronal morphology. A protein involved in this process, the transducer of cdc42-dependent actin assembly 1 (TOCA-1) protein, a member of the evolutionarily conserved pombe CDC15 homology (PCH) protein family, is an essential component of the Cdc42 pathway. TOCA-1 binds both N-WASP and Cdc42 and is essential for Cdc42- and PIP2-induced actin polymerization, suggesting that TOCA-1 mediates Cdc42-dependent actin nucleation by activating the N-WASP-WIP complex. Decreased expression of TOCA-1 significantly enhances neurite elongation in PC-12 cells; its overexpression in the same cells suppresses neurite elongation. It has been suggested that TOCA-1 negatively regulates axon branching by regulating membrane trafficking by regulating membrane trafficking through the F-BAR/EFC domain. Multiple isoforms of TOCA-1 are known to exist.
