|Other Names||APC membrane recruitment protein 1, Amer1, Protein FAM123B, Wilms tumor gene on the X chromosome protein, AMER1, FAM123B, WTX|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP6553c was selected from the Center region of human WTX. 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.|
|Function||Regulator of the canonical Wnt signaling pathway. Acts by specifically binding phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(4,5)P2), translocating to the cell membrane and interacting with key regulators of the canonical Wnt signaling pathway, such as components of the beta-catenin destruction complex. Acts both as a positive and negative regulator of the Wnt signaling pathway, depending on the context: acts as a positive regulator by promoting LRP6 phosphorylation. Also acts as a negative regulator by acting as a scaffold protein for the beta- catenin destruction complex and promoting stabilization of Axin at the cell membrane. Promotes CTNNB1 ubiquitination and degradation. Involved in kidney development.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein; Cytoplasmic side. Nucleus. Note=Shuttles between nucleus and cytoplasm. Detected in nuclear paraspeckles that are found close to splicing speckles. Translocates to the cell membrane following binding to PtdIns(4,5)P2|
|Tissue Location||Detected in fetal and adult kidney, brain and spleen.|
