|Application Notes||Periphilin antibody can be used for detection of Periphilin by Western blot at 1 µg/mL. Antibody can also be used for immunohistochemistry starting at 2.5 µg/mL. For immunofluorescence start at 5 µg/mL.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Periphilin 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||Periphilin Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Component of the HUSH complex, a multiprotein complex that mediates epigenetic repression. The HUSH complex is recruited to genomic loci rich in H3K9me3 and is probably required to maintain transcriptional silencing by promoting recruitment of SETDB1, a histone methyltransferase that mediates further deposition of H3K9me3. In the HUSH complex, contributes to the maintenance of the complex at chromatin (PubMed:26022416). Acts as a transcriptional corepressor and regulates the cell cycle, probably via the HUSH complex (PubMed:15474462, PubMed:17963697). May be involved in epithelial differentiation by contributing to epidermal integrity and barrier formation (Probable).|
|Cellular Location||Nucleus Cytoplasm. Chromosome. Note=In undifferentiated keratinocytes expressed in speckle-type nuclear granules and at the nuclear membrane, but in the differentiated keratinocytes colocalized with periplakin at the cell periphery and at cell-cell junctions (PubMed:12853457). Localizes to chromatin (PubMed:26022416).|

Periphilin Antibody: Periphilin, known as PPHLN1 or gastric cancer antigen Ga50, plays a role in epithelial differentiation and contributes to epidermal integrity and barrier formation. It interacts with periplakin, a known precursor of the cornified cell envelope. Periphilin 1 is ubiquitously expressed and localizes to nucleus and cytoplasm. Existing as eight alternatively spliced isoforms, Periphilin is highly insoluble and contains a putative nuclear localization signal (NLS) within its N-terminal half, a prerequisite for the formation of insoluble complexes and a possible caspase recognition sequence and a potential nuclear export signal. Periphilin may play an important role in the nervous system.
