Additional Information
Gene ID 284359
Target/Specificity IZUMO1; IZUMO1 antibody is human specific. At least four isoforms of IZUMO1 are known to exist; this antibody will detect the two longest isoforms.
Reconstitution & Storage IZUMO1 antibody can be stored at 4℃ for three months and -20℃, stable for up to one year.
PrecautionsIZUMO1 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.
Protein Information
Function Essential sperm cell-surface protein required for fertilization by acting as a ligand for IZUMO1R/JUNO receptor on egg. The IZUMO1:IZUMO1R/JUNO interaction is a necessary adhesion event between sperm and egg that is required for fertilization but is not sufficient for cell fusion. The ligand-receptor interaction probably does not act as a membrane 'fusogen'.
Cellular Location Membrane; Single-pass type I membrane protein
Tissue Location Sperm-specific (at protein level). Detectable on sperm surface only after the acrosome reaction

IZUMO1, a sperm-specific protein, is essential for sperm-egg plasma membrane binding and fusion. It is involved in the fertilization process and in the fusion of the sperm with the egg (1,2). IZUMO1 is expressed as at least four isoforms produced by alternative splicing and contains one Ig-like (immunoglobulin-like) C2-type domain (3). Lack of IZUMO1 in males, due to homozygous mutation in the gene that encodes IZUMO1, results in sterility due to an inability to penetrate the plasma membrane of the egg (4).
