|Other Names||Caveolin-1, CAV1, CAV|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP7767b was selected from the N-term region of human CAV1. 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||May act as a scaffolding protein within caveolar membranes. Interacts directly with G-protein alpha subunits and can functionally regulate their activity (By similarity). Involved in the costimulatory signal essential for T-cell receptor (TCR)- mediated T-cell activation. Its binding to DPP4 induces T-cell proliferation and NF-kappa-B activation in a T-cell receptor/CD3- dependent manner. Recruits CTNNB1 to caveolar membranes and may regulate CTNNB1-mediated signaling through the Wnt pathway.|
|Cellular Location||Golgi apparatus membrane; Peripheral membrane protein. Cell membrane; Peripheral membrane protein Membrane, caveola; Peripheral membrane protein. Membrane raft Note=Colocalized with DPP4 in membrane rafts. Potential hairpin- like structure in the membrane. Membrane protein of caveolae|
|Tissue Location||Expressed in muscle and lung, less so in liver, brain and kidney|

The scaffolding protein CAV1 is the main component of the caveolae plasma membranes found in most cell types. This protein links integrin subunits to the tyrosine kinase FYN, an initiating step in coupling integrins to the Ras-ERK pathway and promoting cell cycle progression. The CAV1 gene is a tumor suppressor gene candidate and a negative regulator of the Ras-p42/44 MAP kinase cascade.
