|Other Names||Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein family member 1, WASP family protein member 1, Protein WAVE-1, Verprolin homology domain-containing protein 1, WASF1, KIAA0269, SCAR1, WAVE1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP14110c was selected from the Center region of WASF1. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Synonyms||KIAA0269, SCAR1, WAVE1|
|Function||Downstream effector molecule involved in the transmission of signals from tyrosine kinase receptors and small GTPases to the actin cytoskeleton. Promotes formation of actin filaments. Part of the WAVE complex that regulates lamellipodia formation. The WAVE complex regulates actin filament reorganization via its interaction with the Arp2/3 complex.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cell junction, synapse. Note=Dot-like pattern in the cytoplasm Concentrated in Rac-regulated membrane-ruffling areas|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in brain. Lowly expressed in testis, ovary, colon, kidney, pancreas, thymus, small intestine and peripheral blood|

The protein encoded by this gene, a member of theWiskott-Aldrich syndrome protein (WASP)-family, plays a criticalrole downstream of Rac, a Rho-family small GTPase, in regulatingthe actin cytoskeleton required for membrane ruffling. It has beenshown to associate with an actin nucleation core Arp2/3 complexwhile enhancing actin polymerization in vitro. Wiskott-Aldrichsyndrome is a disease of the immune system, likely due to defectsin regulation of actin cytoskeleton. Multiple alternatively splicedtranscript variants encoding the same protein have been found forthis gene.
