|Other Names||FCH domain only protein 2, FCHO2|
|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||Functions in an early step of clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Has both a membrane binding/bending activity and the ability to recruit proteins essential to the formation of functional clathrin-coated pits. Has a lipid-binding activity with a preference for membranes enriched in phosphatidylserine and phosphoinositides (Pi(4,5) biphosphate) like the plasma membrane. Its membrane-bending activity might be important for the subsequent action of clathrin and adaptors in the formation of clathrin-coated vesicles. Involved in adaptor protein complex AP- 2-dependent endocytosis of the transferin receptor, it also functions in the AP-2-independent endocytosis of the LDL receptor.|
|Cellular Location||Membrane, clathrin-coated pit; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Note=Associated with forming but not mature clathrin-coated vesicles. The recruitment to coated-pits precede the one of clathrin and the adaptor protein complex AP-2 (By similarity).|
