|Other Names||Switch-associated protein 70, SWAP-70, SWAP70, KIAA0640|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP1441c was selected from the Center region of human SWAP70. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||The synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml deionized 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.|
|Function||Phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-trisphosphate-dependent guanine nucleotide exchange factor (GEF) which, independently of RAS, transduces signals from tyrosine kinase receptors to RAC. It also mediates signaling of membrane ruffling. Regulates the actin cytoskeleton as an effector or adapter protein in response to agonist stimulated phosphatidylinositol (3,4)-bisphosphate production and cell protrusion (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell membrane. Nucleus. Cell projection, lamellipodium. Note=In resting B-cells it is localized mainly in the cytoplasm and upon cell activation it is recruited to the plasma membrane and then translocates to the nucleus. In activated, class-switching B-cells it is associated with membrane IgG but not IgM. Localized to loose actin filament arrays located behind actively extending lamellipodia|
|Tissue Location||Expressed only in mature B-cells including those associated with mucosa-associated tissue and bronchus- associated tissue (PubMed:10681448). Widely expressed. Abundant in spleen, and fairly abundant in kidney, lung and liver. Also found in monocytes and macrophages (PubMed:12925760)|
