|Target/Specificity||TESPA1; TESPA1 antibody is human specific. At least three isoforms TESPA1 are known to exist.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||TESPA1 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.|
|Precautions||TESPA1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Required for the development and maturation of T-cells, its function being essential for the late stages of thymocyte development (By similarity). Plays a role in T-cell antigen receptor (TCR)-mediated activation of the ERK and NFAT signaling pathways, possibly by serving as a scaffolding protein that promotes the assembly of the LAT signalosome in thymocytes. May play a role in the regulation of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor-mediated Ca(2+) release and mitochondrial Ca(2+) uptake via the mitochondria-associated endoplasmic reticulum membrane (MAM) compartment.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Note=May localize to mitochondria- associated endoplasmic reticulum membrane (MAM)|

TESPA1 is a critical component of the TCR signalosome and is essential for T cell selection and maturation through the regulation of TCR signaling during T cell development (1). TESPA1 encodes a protein of 458 amino acids and is highly conserved among vertebrate species (2). TESPA1 expression was tightly regulated during T cell development, with highest expression at the DP stage (3). TESPA1 deficiency resulted in failure of positive selection and substantially fewer of CD4+ and CD8+ SP cells in the thymus (1,4).
