|Other Names||Chloride intracellular channel protein 5, CLIC5|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7583a was selected from the region of human CLIC5. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|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 hearing (PubMed:24781754). It is necessary for the formation of stereocilia in the inner ear and normal development of the organ of Corti (By similarity). Can insert into membranes and form poorly selective ion channels that may also transport chloride ions. May play a role in the regulation of transepithelial ion absorption and secretion. Is required for the development and/or maintenance of the proper glomerular endothelial cell and podocyte architecture (PubMed:15184393, PubMed:18028448, PubMed:20335315).|
|Cellular Location||Isoform 1: Cytoplasm, cell cortex. Cytoplasm, cytoskeleton. Membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Note=Associates with the cortical actin cytoskeleton. Exists both as soluble cytoplasmic protein and as membrane protein with probably a single transmembrane domain (By similarity).|
|Tissue Location||Widely expressed in both fetal and adult human tissues (PubMed:24781754). Isoform 1 is expressed in renal glomeruli endothelial cells and podocytes (at protein level)|
