|Other Names||Tubby-related protein 1, Tubby-like protein 1, TULP1, TUBL1|
|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.|
|Function||Required for normal development of photoreceptor synapses. Required for normal photoreceptor function and for long- term survival of photoreceptor cells. Interacts with cytoskeleton proteins and may play a role in protein transport in photoreceptor cells (By similarity). Binds lipids, especially phosphatidylinositol 3-phosphate, phosphatidylinositol 4- phosphate, phosphatidylinositol 5-phosphate, phosphatidylinositol 3,4-bisphosphate, phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate, phosphatidylinositol 3,4,5-bisphosphate, phosphatidylserine and phosphatidic acid (in vitro). Contribute to stimulation of phagocytosis of apoptotic retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) cells and macrophages.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Secreted. Cell junction, synapse. Note=Detected at synapses between photoreceptor cells and second-order neurons. Does not have a cleavable signal peptide and is secreted by an alternative pathway (By similarity).|

This gene encodes a member of the tubby-like gene family(TULPs). Members of this family have been identified in plants,vertebrates, and invertebrates and encode proteins of unknownfunction. TULP proteins share a conserved C-terminal region ofapproximately 200 amino acid residues. Mutations in this gene maybe associated with retinitis pigmentosa.
