|Application Notes||PICALM antibody can be used for detection of PICALM by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||PICALM 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||PICALM Antibody 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.|

PICALM Antibody: PICALM, also known as the clathrin assembly lymphoid myeloid leukemia (CALM) protein, co-localizes with clathrin at clathrin-coated areas of the plasma membrane and in the Golgi area, and is thought to be an important component of the coated pit internalization machinery. Fusion proteins involving PICALM have been implicated in acute myeloid and T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia. PICALM is also expressed in neurons and is present at the synapse where it facilitates the endocytosis of the synaptic vesicle protein VAMP2. Recent studies have identified variants of PICALM associated with Alzheimer's disease and have suggested this protein may play a role in the endocytosis and recycling of the amyloid protein precursor (APP).
