|Other Names||Pericentriolar material 1 protein, PCM-1, hPCM-1, PCM1|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7481b was selected from the C-term region of human PCM-1. 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||Required for centrosome assembly and function. Essential for the correct localization of several centrosomal proteins including CEP250, CETN3, PCNT and NEK2. Required to anchor microtubules to the centrosome. Involved in the biogenesis of cilia.|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome. Cytoplasmic granule. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, microtubule organizing center, centrosome, centriolar satellite Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton, cilium basal body. Note=Recruitment to the centrosome requires microtubules and dynein. The majority of the protein dissociates from the centrosome during metaphase and subsequently localizes to the cleavage site in telophase. Displaced from centriolar satellites and centrosome in response to cellular stress, such as ultraviolet light (UV) radiation or heat shock, in a process that requires p38 MAP kinase signaling|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in blood, bone marrow, breast, lymph node, ovary and thyroid.|
