|Other Names||Gelsolin, AGEL, Actin-depolymerizing factor, ADF, Brevin, GSN|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7326a was selected from the N-term region of human GSN. 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||Calcium-regulated, actin-modulating protein that binds to the plus (or barbed) ends of actin monomers or filaments, preventing monomer exchange (end-blocking or capping). It can promote the assembly of monomers into filaments (nucleation) as well as sever filaments already formed. Plays a role in ciliogenesis.|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 2: Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton.|
|Tissue Location||Phagocytic cells, platelets, fibroblasts, nonmuscle cells, smooth and skeletal muscle cells|

GSN binds to the 'plus' ends of actin monomers and filaments to prevent monomer exchange. The calcium-regulated protein functions in both assembly and disassembly of actin filaments. Defects in this protein are a cause of familial amyloidosis Finnish type (FAF).
