|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell projection, podosome. Cell projection, invadopodium. Note=In the cytosol, associated with actin stress fibers|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in breast, colon and brain. In all 3 tissues, expressed in the microvasculature (at protein level). In addition, in the breast, found in the contractile myoepithelial cell layer which surrounds the breast ducts (at protein level). In the colon, expressed in the mucous membrane and colonic crypts and in the smooth muscle cell layer which provide movement of the colon (at protein level). In the cerebellum, localized around the Purkinje neurons and the granule cells of the granular layer, but not inside cell bodies (at protein level). Outside of the cerebellar cortex, expressed in glial cells (at protein level) Highly expressed away from the cell bodies within the dentate nucleus (at protein level).|

AFAP1L Antibody: The actin filament-associated protein 1 (AFAP1)-like 1 protein is one of three members in the AFAP1 family of adaptor proteins. Like AFAP1, AFAP1L1 is an actin binding protein that has a role in actin cytoskeleton arrangement, but AFAP1L1 is thought to have a unique function distinct from AFAP1. AFAP1L1 colocalizes with cortactin and localizes to invadosomes, highly dynamic, actin-rich adhesion structures harboring metalloproteases, suggesting that AFAP1L1 affects invadosome formation (1, 4). Recent reports suggest that AFAP1L1 can be used as a prognostic marker for spindle cell sarcomas.
