|Application ||WB, IF, E|
|Other Accession||NP_694571, 222136684|
|Reactivity||Human, Mouse, Rat|
|Calculated MW||Predicted: 46, 91 kDa |
Observed: 52, 90 kDa
|Application Notes||PRICKLE1 antibody can be used for detection of PRICKLE1 by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunofluorescence starting at 20 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 20 µg/mL.|
|Target/Specificity||PRICKLE1; Multiple isoforms of PRICKLE1 are known to exist. PRICKLE1 antibody is predicted to not cross-react with other PRICKLE protein family members.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||PRICKLE1 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||PRICKLE1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Involved in the planar cell polarity pathway that controls convergent extension during gastrulation and neural tube closure. Convergent extension is a complex morphogenetic process during which cells elongate, move mediolaterally, and intercalate between neighboring cells, leading to convergence toward the mediolateral axis and extension along the anteroposterior axis. Necessary for nuclear localization of REST. May serve as nuclear receptor.|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus membrane. Cytoplasm, cytosol. Note=A smaller amount is detected in the cytosol|
|Tissue Location||Expressed at highest levels in placenta and at lower levels in lung, liver, kidney and pancreas. Expressed in thalamus, hippocampus, cerebral cortex, and cerebellum (in neurons rather than glia).|

PRICKLE1 Antibody: PRICKLE1, also known as RILP or EPM1B, is a Disheveled-associated protein that serves as a nuclear translocation receptor for REST/NRSF and REST4 (1, 2). It contains three N-terminal LIM domains and three C-terminal nuclear localization signals. It localizes to the cytoplasm, as well as to the nuclear membrane and expressed at higher levels in placenta. PRICKLE1 is a negative regulator of the Wnt / beta-catenin signaling pathway and is a putative tumor suppressor in human HCCs. Defects in the gene encoding PRICKLE1 are associated with autosomal recessive progressive myoclonic epilepsy.
